BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The University of Iowa women's tennis team was downed by No. 45 Indiana (15-5 overall, 4-2 Big Ten), 6-1, on Saturday at the IU Outdoor Courts. The 72nd-ranked Hawkeyes dropped to 7-10 overall and 1-5 in the Big Ten.

"Indiana was better than us today," said head coach Katie Dougherty. "Slow starts and errors hurt us in both singles and doubles today. I think we took a step backwards in some respects. We've been making consistent improvement and need to continue that tomorrow against Purdue."

The Hoosiers claimed the doubles point by winning two-of-three matches. Iowa was victorious at the top spot, as senior Sonja Molnar and freshman Morven McCulloch defeated Sophie Garre and Katie Klyczek, 8-6. It was Molnar and McCulloch's second consecutive victory. The pair improved to 3-3 in dual play.

UI freshman Shelby Talcott scored the Hawkeyes' lone point in singles. The Long Island, N.Y., native won a 7-5, 6-2 decision against Evgeniya Vertesheva at the No. 2 position. Talcott owns a 6-10 dual record.

Iowa faces No. 34 Purdue on Sunday in West Lafayette, Ind., at noon (CT).
