GREEN BAY, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team dropped a pair of road matches this weekend, falling at Northern Iowa 7-0 on Friday and to North Dakota 6-1 on Saturday. The Phoenix was supposed to open its home schedule on Sunday against Northern Illinois, but the impending weather in the area affected travel plans.

In Saturday's match against North Dakota, Rebecca Nelson claimed the team's lone victory, posting a hard-fought, 6-7 (7), 6-3, 10-3 win at No. 5 singles over Steph Brehn. Senior Emily Lawent fell in her three-set affair at No. 1 singles against Erin Kappers, forcing a third set with a 6-4 set two win before falling 10-6 in the third-set tiebreak.

In doubles action, Green Bay was swept despite all three matches being close. At No. 1, Lawent and Morgan Weueve lost to Kappers and Callie Rankowski 8-5. Nelson and Jennifer Bradfield dropped an 8-6 decision at No. 2 and Maria Anderson and Julia Kedryzycki lost in a tiebreak at No. 3.

Green Bay returns to the court on Friday, playing at Marquette at 1 p.m. in Milwaukee.
