DES MOINES, Iowa – Two SIUE doubles teams walked away with titles at the Drake Jamboree.

Lexi Aranda and Sierra Halverson were winners of No. 1 doubles. Mia Frogner and Monique Krutak were named the champions at No. 2 doubles. Both teams posted a 3-1 record in doubles matches.

"Overall, it's a solid outing for the three-day event," said SIUE women's tennis Head Coach Jason Coomer.

SIUE was clearly in the mix for the most wins in singles and doubles matches at the Jamboree held at the Knapp Tennis Center. The Cougars finished with 21 and were edged out by host Drake with 24 and Iowa with 23.

On Sunday, the Cougars lost six singles matches to Iowa and three doubles matches to Drake.

Frogner came the closest to victory Sunday with a three-set loss. She was defeated by Morven McCulloch 6-3, 6-7 (5), 13-11. Kali Donner had a similar outcome against Iowa's Ellen Silver 4-6, 6-3, 10-8.

SIUE's next event is a dual match Jan. 20 at Missouri.
