Led by sophomore Sonja Molnar, the Iowa women’s team (6-2) upset No. 44 Princeton (7-4), 4-3, in Minneapolis on Feb. 27.

Molnar’s only ace of the day came in her final set, securing her victory over Princeton’s Hilary Bartlett (5-7, 6-1, 6-4).

Princeton had recently posted a victory over a Vanderbilt squad ranked in the top 20.

Iowa swept the Tigers in doubles competition. Senior Kelcie Klockenga and junior Jessica Young won their match against Rachel Saiontz and Monica Chow, 9-7, and juniors Lynne Poggensse-Wei and Alexis Dorr won, 8-6.

Iowa head coach Katie Dougherty altered the lineup a bit, putting Molnar and senior Merel Beelen together in the first doubles spot.

The duo downed the Tigers’ Bartlett and Taylor Marable, 8-6.

Princeton kept it close in singles play. Saiontz, Marable, and Blakely Ashley of Princeton all posted victories in their matches against Beelen, Klockenga, and Dorr.

Ashley’s 6-1, 2-6, 6-3 wins ended Dorr’s undefeated season in singles play.
