SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The women’s tennis team failed to come out on top in a grueling road match against No. 37 Purdue on April 5 at the Schwartz Tennis Center, 4-2.

The Hawkeyes have now lost six straight, with five of those loses coming to conference opponents. Iowa’s record is now 8-9, 1-5 in the Big Ten.

The shining beacon for the Hawkeyes continues to come from the doubles play of Morven McCulloch and Ruth Seaborne, who posted an 8-6 win at the No. 1 doubles spot.

The two are undefeated in Big Ten play with a record of 5-0. They also boast an overall record of 12-2 and have won eight straight.

Shelby Talcott also came out victorious with a win at the No. 3 singles (6-1, 6-2). Seaborne was also victorious in her singles match (6-4, 6-3).

The Hawkeyes have been struggling to get back on track and now sit 10th in the Big Ten. Purdue improved to 9-7 on the season, 5-2 in the Big Ten.
