After two Iowa women's tennis players competed in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Central Regional Championships last week, the entire team will compete at Purdue from today through Nov. 6 at the Schwartz Tennis Challenge.

Senior Sonja Molnar (11-2 in singles this season) and freshman Shelby Talcott (6-3 in singles and 9-2 in doubles) will rejoin the Hawkeyes for the Purdue tournament after spending five days in Tulsa, Okla., for the regionals.

The Black and Gold will be joined in West Lafayette, Ind., by Illinois, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt. Eleven of the 125 players ranked in the Tennis Association preseason poll will also be present for Iowa's last competition of the fall.

"This is a great way for us to end the fall," head coach Katie Dougherty said in a release. "We'll see how far we've come this semester and where we still need to improve. We have had a good fall so far and will get to see new doubles combinations and play against great competition."
