CEDAR FALLS, Iowa - The Drake women’s tennis team turned a strong start at the Northern Iowa Fall Invitational on Friday registering a 10-3 combined singles/doubles ledger.

In the top singles draw, junior Nell Boyd (Arlington Heights, Ill.) garnered a pair of victories to move into the semifinals of the ‘Purple’ flight.  Boyd opened her day besting Rymma Maslova of South Dakota, 6-3, 6-1, before downing Adele Henke of Bradley, 6-2, 6-3.

Sophomore Jordan Eggleston (LaQuinta, Calif.) marched into the semifinals of the ‘Gold’ draw with a pair of triumphs.  Eggleston dispatched Milica Pavlovic of South Dakota, 6-0, 6-1, and then dealt a 6-2, 6-1 setback to Naty Yacaman of Saint Louis.

Posting 1-1 marks in their respective singles flights were sophomores Maddie Johnson (Onalaska, Wis.) and Mariel Ante (Riverside, Calif.) and junior Amanda Dick (Kenosha, Wis.).

In doubles, the Bulldogs posted a 3-0 mark with all three teams advancing into the quarterfinal round.
