The UNI women’s tennis team participated in the Drake and Gopher Invitational during September, followed by the Individual Championships and Regionals throughout October.

After Regionals were finished in Kansas, teams took a break before beginning the regular season in January. The Panthers lost their season opener to Iowa 7-0, followed by another 7-0 loss to Minnesota.

The Panthers did turn it around with two consecutive victories against South Dakota State and Milwaukee.

UNI defeated the Jack Rabbits 5-2, taking the No. 1 and No. 2 spots in doubles.

Gisela Kemper and Reghan Lynch won first spot with a 6-2 count, and Harri Proudfoot and Valentina Caro took the second spot, 9-7.

Their second win against Milwaukee recorded a final score of 4-3; in singles play each team won three matches.

Following their victory with a two-game road trip to Omaha, Nebraska, the Panthers lost both games, the first to Omaha, 5-2, and the second to Creighton, 7-0.

Winning their third game of the season against Cardinal Stritch (5-2), the Panthers are now on a three game losing streak.

This Saturday, the team will travel to Des Moines and take on the Drake Bulldogs.
