The University of Northern Iowa women’s tennis team wrapped up its second weekend of action this afternoon in Wichita, Kansas at the MVC Individuals tournament. The Panthers found a victory in their only match today which featured the doubles pair of Krissy Lankelma and Phoebe Walker.
Lankelma and Walker took down University of Evansville’s James / Costales pair following an 8-4 decision in the top flight of the MVC doubles. The victory earned the Panthers a 1st place finish in the championship match.
“I’m really proud of our girls, taking on the top seed in the first round we competed well and fought hard. All of our girls this weekend showed progress and really helped us see where we are, overall a great weekend.” – UNI head coach Mariana Cobra
The Panthers will take the court again next weekend in Lawrence, Kansas at the KU invite.
