The Hawkeyes’ women’s tennis team was in action on Sunday, falling to No. 12 Northwestern, 5-2.
Previously undefeated in conference play, the doubles pair of Ruth Seaborne and Morven McCulloch had their 10-match winning streak snapped by the Wildcats’ Veronica Corning and Alicia Barnett, 8-4. Northwestern secured the doubles point as Brooke Rischbieth and Belinda Niu defeated Ellen Silver and Annette Dohanics, 8-1.

Iowa’s struggles carried over into the singles matches.

Barnett defeated McCulloch handily (6-0, 6-2), and Shelby Talcott fell to 40th-ranked Niu (6-2, 6-0). The Wildcats clinched the match after Manon Peri defeated Katie Zordani (6-1, 6-1), giving Northwestern a 4-0 start.

It wasn’t all bad for the Hawks, however; Seaborne defeated No. 34 Corning in a match decided by a tiebreaker (6-3, 7-6 [7-5]). Seaborne has won five matches in a row and is 9-1 on the road.

The Hawkeyes also scored a point when Dohanics defeated Maddie Lipp (2-6, 6-2, 7-6 [7-5]).
