DALLAS, Texas — The University of Iowa women’s tennis team picked up wins in singles and doubles on Saturday at Metroplex Mania in Dallas, Texas.
Danielle Burich won her singles match in straight sets versus BYU’s Katie Fitt, 6-3, 6-4. Burich now has five singles wins the tournament season.
In doubles action, Burich teamed with Danielle Bauers to defeat Katie Fitt and Morgan Hall of BYU, 6-1.
The Hawkeyes dropped three singles matches. Elise van Heuvelen Treadwell battled, but ultimately dropped her singles match in three sets to Vivienne Kulicke, 3-6, 6-2, 6-0. Danielle Bauers faced a similarly tough singles match, and fell short against Avery Aude, 6-4, 6-4. Cloe Ruette was defeated by Nicole Petchey in straight sets, 6-1, 7-6. Each Hawkeye fell to a Southern Methodist University opponent.
In other doubles action, Van Heuvelen Treadwell and Ruette fell to BYU’s Anastasia Abramian and Kate Cusick, 6-4.
“Even though a couple matches didn’t get go our way today, I thought we did a good job of competing and trying to swing the momentum in our favor. Hopefully we can come out tomorrow and execute a little better on big points so we can feel good heading into our season opener on Friday,” said Iowa assistant coach Daniel Leitner.
Iowa returns to the court tomorrow. Action is tentatively scheduled for 9:30 a.m. (CT).
