Morgan Weuve picked up a win at No. 3 singles on Friday against Detroit.

DETROIT, Mich. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team concluded its Horizon League schedule on Friday with a tough, 4-3 loss to Detroit. The Phoenix won three of the six singles matches, but the Titans swept the doubles point to earn the narrow victory.

The Phoenix earned victories in the Nos. 3-5 singles matches, as junior Morgan Weuve (Green Bay, Wis.) and sophomores Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) and Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.) each won in third set tiebreakers.

Weuve picked up a win at No. 3, defeating Detroit's Julia Fernandes 6-4, 4-6, 10-3. After splitting the first two sets in the No. 4 spot (7-6, 4-6), Anderson came out strong in the tiebreaker and won 10-5 over Raina Halabi. In the No. 5 match, Nelson earned a come-from-behind win over Erin Weldon, taking the second and third (6-4, 10-8) after dropping the first set 2-6.

The Phoenix closes out its regular season this Saturday with a pair of home matches at the Green Bay Tennis Center. Green Bay hosts Chicago State at 1 p.m., and then welcomes South Dakota at 4 p.m.
