GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team continued Horizon League play over the weekend by splitting a pair of home contests against UIC and Valparaiso at Western Racquet and Fitness Club. The Phoenix improved to 2-9 overall and 1-2 in the conference after earning a 6-1 victory over the Crusaders on Sunday following a 6-1 loss to the Flames on Saturday.

On Sunday against Valpo, the Phoenix took two of the three doubles contests to secure the doubles point before winning five of the six singles matches en route to its first league win.

"It was a good team effort for the win today," Phoenix head coach Sara Schubring said. "We'll continue to work on shot tolerance and our transition game as we prepare for the rest of the conference season."

Seniors Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) and Jennifer Bradfield (Fairfield, Iowa) started things off with an 8-4 win over the Crusader duo of Megan Barthels and Kristin Zakiewicz at the No. 1 doubles spot. Bradfield then won her No. 1 singles contest over Barthels 6-2, 6-3, while Weuve came from behind to beat Kaitlyn Hamel 4-6, 7-5, 10-5 at No. 2.

"Bradfield served big in both singles and doubles, and she and Morgan (Weuve) stayed aggressive throughout the duration of their doubles win," Schubring said. "Weuve also showed great resiliency after dropping a set in singles. She was able to jump out to early leads and keep the pressure on by closing into the net."

Freshman Amanda Timm (Milwaukee, Wis.) was also a two-time winner for the Phoenix on Sunday, pairing up with fellow freshman Samantha Iwen (De Pere, Wis.) for a dominating 8-2 victory over Valpo's Angelina Goheen and Michele Fredlake at No. 3 doubles while winning her No. 3 singles match 6-3, 6-3 over Stephanie York.

Junior Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) earned a win at the No. 4 singles spot on Sunday, defeating Fredlake 3-6, 6-4, 10-3. Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.) was also victorious in singles action, beating Zakiewicz 6-2, 6-3.

Green Bay is set to start stretch of four straight road matches against Horizon League competition, beginning with a trip to Cleveland State and Youngstown State next weekend. The Phoenix is set to face the Vikings on Friday at 7 p.m. in Cleveland, followed by a 6 p.m. showdown with the Penguins in Youngstown, Ohio on Saturday.
