ISU women's tennis team competed in Mizzou Tourney

The Iowa State women's tennis team competed in the Missouri Tournament in Columbia, Mo. over the weekend. The three-day tournament featured singles and doubles action against Kansas State, Missouri and Arkansas.

Cyclone netter Kara Hickey had a solid performance at her hometown courts. The freshman captured two singles wins against Arkansas and Missouri.

"It was certainly fun to see Kara have a successful homecoming in her hometown of Columbia," head coach Michele Conlon said. "Kara was tough down the stretch in her wins over Kansas State and Arkansas. It's great to see such poise and composure from a freshman."

Hickey partnered with senior Elizabeth Chermel in doubles action. The duo captured four doubles wins.
"Beth and Kara were fantastic all weekend long," Conlon said. "They are both powerful big hitters and yet I think they played smart as well."

Iowa State will continue tournament action  at the Wildcat Invitational in Evanston, Ill. Oct 7-9.
