The Iowa men's tennis team finished play in both the Wildcat Invitational in Evanston, Ill., and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Central Regional in Tulsa, Okla., on Sunday.

Three Hawkeyes — senior Chris Speer, junior Connor Gilmore, and sophomore Michael Swank — finished with 2-1 singles records in Evanston.

Speer extended his singles winning streak to 10 matches, including a marathon (3-6, 6-1, 13-11) victory in the second round, before falling on Sunday. The senior now owns a 10-2 record entering this weekend's Big Ten indoor championships in Iowa City.

Jonas Dierckx won his first two matches at the regional tournament in Tulsa and advanced to the tournament's round of 16 before losing to Oklahoma State's Vlad Bondarenko.

Chase Tomlins fell in both of his matches, and the duo lost their lone doubles match to Oklahoma's Costin Paval and Dane Webb. The Cowboy pair had split two matches earlier in the season with Iowa's top doubles team of Will Vasos and Marc Bruche.

The Hawkeyes will finish the fall season at the Hawkeye Tennis & Recreation Center for the Big Ten tourney beginning Friday.
