AMES, Iowa- The Iowa State tennis team will travel to the University of Houston this weekend to finish the fall campaign at the Cougar Classic.

The Cyclones came away with some solid wins from ITA Regionals two weeks ago in Norman, Okla. Sophomore Ana Gasparovic took a win over Nebraska’s Lauren Wagner in the first round of qualifying play, 6-1, 6-0. Freshman Samantha Budai paired up with junior Ksenia Pronina for an 8-3 doubles win over the Nebraska duo of Maike Zeppernick and Izabella Zgierska. Budai also picked up a singles win on the third day of play against Wichita State’s Summer Schlotterback, 6-1, 6-4.

All three will be back this weekend in Houston, along with senior Emma Waites. Earlier this fall at the UNI Invitational, Waites defeated teammate Caroline Andersen in a tough match to bring home the title in her bracket with a score of 7-6(4), 1-6, 1-0(6).

Tournament play will take place Friday through Sunday with singles and doubles action.
