The No. 49 Iowa men’s tennis team dropped two meets in Denver this past weekend to fall to 6-3 on the season.

Iowa lost a 4-3 heartbreaker to Sacramento State (6-6) on March 6.

Although Tommy McGeorge and Will Vasos combined to win their sixth-straight doubles match, 8-3, the Hawkeyes’ No. 1 and No. 3 teams were defeated to give Sacramento State the doubles point.

The Hawkeyes salvaged a split in singles play, but two close losses sealed the loss. No. 1 Marc Bruche was defeated by Kiryl Harbatsiuk (7-6, 7-5), and No. 4 Will Vasos lost to Jason Smith (6-3, 6-7, 7-6) in the deciding match.

Iowa remained in Denver Sunday to face Denver University (10-2) and lost to the No. 32 Pioneers, 6-1.

The Hawkeyes won the doubles point with victories by No. 1 team Bruche and Nikita Zotov and the No. 2 team of McGeorge and Vasos.

The strong start was negated in singles play, in which Bruche retired from his match and Iowa dropped the rest of its matches. No. 3 Reinoud Haal’s (6-3, 6-4) defeat to Enej Bonin ended the senior’s seven-match singles winning streak.
