LINCOLN, Neb. - The University of Notre Dame women's tennis team saw its three-match winning streak snapped Sunday, dropping a 4-1 decision to host Nebraska at the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Kick Off Weekend inside the Nebraska Tennis Center.

The No. 18 Irish (3-1) fell behind early in the match after being thwarted at the second and third doubles courts, giving the No. 17 Cornhuskers (4-0) a 1-0 team lead. A contest between the Nebraska duo of Mary Weatherholt and Patricia Veresova against junior Jennifer Kellner and senior Chrissie McGaffigan was not finished after the Cornhuskers secured the doubles point.

Veresova earned the first win of the singles session, downing Notre Dame's Kellner in straight sets at the No. 2 singles court. Veresova's 6-0, 6-1 win gave Nebraska a 2-0 match advantage.

Freshman Quinn Gleason provided Notre Dame with a spark at No. 3 singles, sweeping Stefanie Weinstein 6-2, 6-4. Gleason's victory drew the Irish within one point at 2-1.

Weatherholt swung the momentum back in Nebraska's favor, defeating junior Britney Sanders 6-3, 6-4 at the No. 1 singles court. A 7-5, 6-4 win for Maggy Lehmicke over Notre Dame junior Julie Sabacinski clinched the team victory for the Cornhuskers.

Notre Dame returns home to host No. 23 Tennessee Feb. 3 at 9 a.m. inside the Eck Tennis Pavilion. Live match results will be available at UND.com.
