After a couple of idle weeks following the Drake Fall Invitational, the women’s tennis team was back in action in Cedar Falls for the Northern Iowa Fall Invitational last weekend. In only the second tournament of the season, Drake had an impressive showing, with singles victories from senior Amanda Aragon and freshman Nell Boyd.
“Everyone fought really hard this past weekend and was always ready to play, even though it was cold,” Boyd said. “It was awesome for only our second tournament.”
The squad netted 17 singles victories overall, finishing the weekend at 17-5.
Boyd was victorious in the No. 3 Silver flight, and Aragon won the No. 4 Bronze draw.
The team did not have the same success on the doubles side. Senior Jessica Aguilera and sophomore Klavdija Rebol were defeated by Cassandra Dix and Stefannia Sampaio of Northern Iowa.
“Being able to notice our weaknesses will only make us stronger next tournament because we are going to work hard to fix them,” Boyd said.
The Bulldogs are back in action at the State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Individuals tournament from Oct. 7-9.
