The Iowa women’s tennis team will hit the road again this weekend to take on a pair of ranked conference rivals. On Saturday, the team will travel to Purdue to take on the 37th-ranked Boilermakers at noon before traveling to Indiana on April 6 to take on No. 43 Hoosiers at 11 a.m.

Hitting a bit of a rough patch lately, the Hawkeyes have lost five straight but plan to turn that around this weekend. The Hawkeyes’ success has come directly from their doubles play. Iowa is 8-2 when winning the doubles point. When losing the doubles point, it is 0-6.

The dynamic duo of Morven McCulloch and Ruth Seaborne continue to be the Hawkeyes’ driving force. They have won seven-straight doubles matches and hold an impressive record of 11-2 on the season. They are also undefeated in conference play, posting a record of 4-0.

Purdue is coming off a 5-2 win against Wisconsin and is 7-7 on the year with a conference record of 3-2. Indiana is coming off a loss against a strong Minnesota team. The Hoosiers boast a record of 14-6 on the season and are 2-3 in the Big Ten.
