GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team opened the home portion of its spring schedule over the weekend, dropping a pair of matches at Western Racquet and Fitness Club. The Phoenix (0-5) lost a tight, 4-3 decision to IUPUI on Saturday afternoon after falling 7-0 to Drake in its home opener on Friday night.

Green Bay split the six singles matches against IUPUI on Saturday, but the Jaguars took the doubles point to secure the 4-3 victory.

Senior Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) was a two-time winner for the Phoenix on Saturday, earning victories at No. 1 doubles and No. 2 singles. Weuve teamed up with classmate Jennifer Bradfield (Fairfield, Iowa) to defeat IUPUI's duo of Alisha Cummings and Danielle Haefele 8-4. The senior then beat Haefele 6-4, 6-2 in singles action.

Also picking up victories for Green Bay Saturday were junior Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.) and freshman Samantha Iwen (De Pere, Wis.), who won at Nos. 5 and 6 singles, respectively. After dropping the first set 6-3 to IUPUI's Abbey Neff, Nelson rallied back to take sets two (6-1) and three (6-3) to earn the come-from-behind win at No. 5, while Iwen beat the Jaguars' Jesika Bays 7-6(2), 6-1 in the sixth singles slot.

Iwen also had Green Bay's strongest performance in Friday's 7-0 loss to Drake. The freshman battled to set up match point against Drake senior Earlynn Lauer, but ended up falling 6-2, 4-6, 1-0(9) at the No. 6 singles spot. The Bulldogs (6-1) took all six singles matches in addition to the three doubles contests en route to their fifth consecutive win.

The Phoenix will play its next three matches away from home, beginning with its Horizon League opener at Milwaukee on Friday, Feb. 17 at 3 p.m.
