Men’s tennis drops two on the road

SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The No. 60 Iowa men’s tennis team (10-7, 2-4 Big Ten) dropped a pair of weekend road meets, falling to No. 13 Illinois, 7-0, on Sunday, and No. 41 Indiana, 6-1, on April 10.

Illinois (14-7, 6-0) swept the Hawkeyes in doubles, but Iowa rebounded by winning the first set in three singles matches. Although Iowa could not nail down a singles victory, Hawkeyes Reinoud Haal, Will Vasos, Tommy McGeorge, and Tom Mroziewicz all forced three sets in their matches.

Mroziewicz, playing in the No. 6 position in place of injured junior Austen Kauss, started slowly but shut out Illinois’ Bruno Abdelnour in the second set before falling (6-3, 0-6, 6-2).

Kauss provided the Hawkeyes with their lone point in their defeat to Indiana (12-6, 3-3), topping Alexander van Gils (7-6, 3-6, 13-11). He sustained an injury during his match, but Iowa head coach Steve Houghton said he is optimistic the junior’s “nagging” leg problems will not force him to miss more meets.

Iowa’s rough weekend pushes the team’s Big Ten record to 2-4 with two weekends left before the conference tournament.
