DES MOINES, Iowa - The University of Northern Iowa women's tennis team capped its first weekend of action this season with some solid play on Saturday at the Drake Fall Invite.

Junior Erica Medlin and freshman Sydney Wolfe teamed up to capture the A Doubles Flight consolation crown with an 8-6 win over Northern Colorado's Stephanie Catlin and Beth Coton.

UNI's other doubles pairing of freshman Jordyn Kearney and senior Krissy Lankelma tallied an 8-1 win over Iowa State's duo of Meghan Cassens and Ana Gasparovic to reach the B Doubles Flight championship match. Drake's Mariel Ante and Maddie Johnson was able to hold off the Panther duo in the final though, 8-3.

Lankelma went 1-1 in singles action on Saturday and reached the B Flight semifinals before falling to ISU's Gasparovic, 6-4, 7-5.

Medlin went 2-0 on the day in singles with a pair of wins in the A Flight consolation draw. Medlin knocked off Creighton's Analese Snyder, 6-1, 6-1, before dispatching Nebraska-Omaha's Hylan Miller, 6-2, 7-5.

UNI will take a full roster to the Gopher Invite next weekend in Minneapolis, Minn.
