Hawkeyes Fall to No. 41 Northwestern

April 3, 2016


EVANSTON, Ill. – The University of Iowa women’s tennis team fell to the No. 41 ranked Northwestern University, 7-0, Sunday afternoon at the Vandy Christie Tennis Center.

The Wildcats clinched the doubles point from the Hawkeyes to kick off the afternoon match. Anastasia Reimchen and Zoe Douglas fell to Alicia Barnett and Brooke Rischbieth of Northwestern, 6-3. Aimee Tarun and Adorabol Huckleby followed on court No. 2, falling to Erin Larner and Lee Or, 6-4.

Montana Crawford and Annette Dohanics trailed Alex Chatt and Jillian Rooney, 5-4, before the match was abandoned and Northwestern won the doubles point.


“We played well in doubles today and were overmatched in singles,” said UI head coach Katie Dougherty. “We had a couple of loose first sets that we let get away from us and then was more competitive in the second but it was too late.”

One Hawkeye faced a ranked opponent in singles against Northwestern. Zoe Douglas took on No. 81 Erin Larner, falling, 4-6, 6-2, 1-0 after three sets. Anastasia Reimchen faced Alicia Barnett, falling, 6-3, 6-4, at the No. 2 spot.

Alex Chatt of Northwestern defeated Kristen Thoms on court No. 3, 6-1, 6-3. Senior Annette Dohanics fell, 6-2, 6-3, to Jillian Rooney. Brooke Rischbieth defeated Aimee Tarun, 6-1, 6-3 at the No. 5 spot. Freshman Adorabol Huckleby fell, 6-0 in both sets to Lee Or of the Wildcats.

“We have some good takeaways from today that we’ll work on this short week leading up to Ohio State and Penn State,” said Dougherty.

The Hawkeyes return to the court Friday in Columbus, Ohio as they take on the Ohio State Buckeyes at 1:30 p.m. (CT) for a Big Ten matchup.
