The Iowa women’s tennis team snapped No. 72 Drake’s seven-match winning streak in an upset on the road Wednesday at the Knapp Tennis Center in Des Moines.

The Hawkeyes were able to best the Bulldogs early to claim the doubles point, with wins from the duo of Morven McCulloch and Ruth Seaborne at the No.1 spot. Shelby Talcott and Annette Dohanics followed with a win at the No. 3 spot.

Clinching the doubles point proved to be the deciding factor in the meet; the Hawks and Bulldogs split the singles matches 3-3. For the Hawkeyes, Seaborne continued her steady play besting Klavdija Rebol (6-1, 6-4) at the No. 1 spot. Katie Zordani, playing at the No. 4 spot, trounced Nell Boyd (6-2, 6-1), and Dohanics trumped Jordan Eggleston (6-2, 6-3).

The Bulldogs were one of the hottest teams in college tennis. Prior to facing the Hawkeyes, they beat Nebraska and Wisconsin in impressive fashion.
