PEORIA, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team (1-7, 0-1 Horizon League) battled to its first victory of the spring season on Sunday, picking up a 5-2 road win against Bradley at the Clubs at River City in Peoria, Ill.

After winning the doubles point, the Phoenix took four of the six singles contests - three of them in three-set fashion.

A pair of seniors led the Phoenix at the No. 1 and No. 2 singles spots on Sunday. At No. 1, Jennifer Bradfield (Fairfield, Iowa) split the first two sets (6-4, 6-7 (9)) against Bradley's Elizabeth Przystawski before posting a 6-2 win in the third set. Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) dropped her first set at the No. 2 spot against Meredith McDonagh, but rallied back to take sets two (6-2) and three (6-3).

Also winning in singles action were juniors Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) and Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.). Like Weuve, Anderson earned a come-from-behind win at No. 4, fighting her way to a 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory over the Braves' Kennedy Scott. Nelson won her No. 5 contest in straight sets, defeating Jessie Bertino 6-3, 6-2.

In doubles, the senior duo of Bradfield and Weuve won at No. 1, defeating Adele Henke and Carly Miles 8-5. The freshman tandem of Samantha Iwen (De Pere, Wis.) and Amanda Timm (Milwaukee, Wis.) secured the doubles point with a convincing 8-0 victory at No. 3.
