WATERLOO, Iowa (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay women's tennis team continued its fall season over the weekend at the Northern Iowa Invitational, held at Byrnes Park in Waterloo, Iowa. The Phoenix faced some strong competition in the three-day, 10-team event in the team's first event under new head coach Sara Schubring.

The tournament was divided into four singles brackets and two doubles brackets. The Phoenix competed against opponents from Bradley, Drake, Minnesota, South Dakota, North Dakota, Missouri, Northern Iowa, Milwaukee and Iowa State.

In the main draw of the No. 2 Gold Doubles bracket, junior Rebecca Nelson (Brookfield, Wis.) and Mandy Timm (Milwaukee, Wis.) teamed up to earn an 8-4 win over South Dakota's pair of Barudzic/Kiefer. Nelson and Timm fell in the second round to Drake duo of Rebol/Aguilera 8-4.

Also in No. 2 Gold Doubles, Green Bay's team of Maria Anderson (Marshfield, Wis.) and Sami Iwen (De Pere, Wis.) advanced to the final match of the consolation bracket, but ended up falling to Barudzic and Kiefer 8-2.

In individual play, Anderson made it all the way through the consolation bracket at No. 3 Silver Singles, earning a 6-3, 7-6 win over Minnesota's Elianna Kantar in the title match.

Nelson made it to the final consolation match at No. 4 Bronze Singles, beating South Dakota's Maddy Warder (6-2, 6-3) before dropping a 3-6, 6-2, 10-6 decision to Bradley's Cassie Wojtalik.
