DALLAS, Texas — The University of Iowa women’s tennis team concluded action on Sunday at Metroplex Mania.
In singles action, Elise van Heuvelen Treadwell fell to Chiara Tomasetti of Northern Arizona University, 6-2, 7-6.
Cloe Ruette dropped her singles match to Katherine Jakeway, 6-2, 6-3. Danielle Burich was defeated in straight sets by Nicole Petchey, 6-0, 6-1. Danielle Burich lost her singles match to Tiffany Hollebeck, 6-3, 7-5. Each Hawkeye was defeated by a Southern Methodist University opponent.
In the doubles tournament, the team of van Heuvelen Treadwell and Ruette fell short in a nail biter to NAU’S double team of Chiara Tomasetti and Ellie Millard, 7-6. The sophomore duo of Danielle Burich and Danielle Bauers were defeated by Emilie Haakansson and Madi Moore of NAU, 6-2.
“I definitely thought we could have done a better job in a couple key areas today,” said Iowa assistant coach Daniel Leitner. “We put ourselves in position to win sets, but weren’t able to close them out. Hopefully we can tighten up a couple areas before starting the season in a couple days.”
The Hawkeyes begin their championship season on Friday, Jan. 18, versus Xavier at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex. The match is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. (CT).
