The Loras College women's tennis team solidified their spot in this weekend's Iowa Conference team tournament with a convincing 9-0 win over the University of Dubuque on Monday. The Duhawks won in straight sets in all but one match.

Lindsay Dunkirk, Ale Ruales, Alisha Espey, Katharine Mack, Breann Billiet, and Kady Homewood each posted wins in the singles matches. Dunkirk and Ruales partnered for the 8-1 win at #1 doubles, Espey and Billiet at #2, and Mack joined Sarah Dickhut for the 9-7 win at #3.

The win sets the stage for Loras' return to the Iowa Conference team tournament this weekend in Iowa City, Iowa. The Duhawks last appeared in the team tournament when the format was only four teams in 2004. The Duhawks earned the #6 seed in this year's tournament and will face #3 Wartburg at 6:00 PM at the Hawkeye Tennis and Recreation Complex.
