Iowa women's tennis' Morven McCulloch leads at ITA Regionals


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Only one Iowa women’s tennis team player advanced to the round of 16 in the International Tennis Association regional tournament this weekend. Sophomore Morven McCulloch picked up two singles wins in the tournament to advance in the singles main draw.

More impressive, however, was the Hawkeyes’ doubles showing. Iowa finished Day One of the tournament undefeated in the doubles bracket.

Shelbey and McCulloch defeated pairs from South Dakota State and Arkansas on Oct. 19 and then picked up one more team win against opponents from Drake before being knocked out in the semifinals by Kansas State players.

Ruth Seaborne and Katie Zordani defeated a Big Ten foe, Nebraska, 8-4 in the second round of the tournament, but then fell to Kansas State players in their first match on Day Two.

Despite walking away empty handed, head coach Katie Dougherty is pleased with her team’s performance at the event.

“This was our best day of doubles this fall,” Dougherty said in a release on Oct. 13. “Both teams were really able to put it together.”
