The Iowa volleyball team dropped its second match of the weekend to the Wisconsin Badgers, 3-0.
The loss moves the Hawkeyes at 10-16 overall, 1-13 in the Big Ten. 

Iowa was dominated early on by the Badgers, who started the first set on an 11-1 run. They managed to maintain the momentum and take the first set, 25-9.

The Hawkeyes were stronger in the final two sets, although in the end, they were unable to shut down the Wisconsin’s offense and prevent the Badgers from winning the next two sets, 25-14 and 25-20.

Senior libero Bethany Yeager pulled within 2 digs of the all-time Iowa record of 1,931.  Junior Alex Lovell led the Hawkeyes with 8 kills, and Erin Leppek posted a team-high .333 hitting percentage.

The Hawkeyes will return to action Friday, when they square off against Michigan in Carver-Hawkeye.
