GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team (1-8, 0-1 Horizon League) dropped a 7-0 decision to Northern Iowa (8-4) Saturday afternoon at Western Racquet and Fitness Club. The Panthers swept the doubles point before winning each of the six singles contests in straight sets.

"Northern Iowa was a very tough matchup," Phoenix head coach Sara Schubring said. "They are a very deep team that is solid from one through six. However our team learned a lot today and we are continuing to get better as the season progresses."

After dropping the first set 6-1 to UNI's Chelsea Moore at the No. 4 singles spot, Phoenix junior Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) battled in set number two before dropping a close 7-5 decision. Freshman Samantha Iwen (De Pere, Wis.) also put forth a strong effort at the No. 6 spot, battling to a 6-3, 6-4 defeat at the hands of Panthers' junior Stefannia Sampaio.

The Panthers also proved to be too strong at the top singles and doubles spots. The UNI duo of Cassandra Dix and Krissy Lankelma cruised past Jennifer Bradfield (Fairfield, Iowa) and Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) at the No. 1 doubles spot 8-0. Dix and Weuve then faced off in a long singles bout at No. 2, with the Panther freshman prevailing 6-2, 6-1. Bradfield fell at No. 1 singles, dropping a 6-1, 6-0 result to UNI's Nina Phahler.

The Phoenix has a long break before its next match, taking four weeks off from competition before hosting Horizon League opponents UIC and Valparaiso on March 31 and April 1 at Western Racquet and Fitness.
