Men's Tennis' Dunn, Swank ranked preseason No. 55


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A pair of Hawkeyes are being nationally recognized on the tennis court.

Senior Garret Dunn and Junior Michael Swank earned a doubles preseason ranking of No. 55 from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association­, the governing body of college tennis.

Dunn and Swank went 8-14 as a doubles pair last year, with seven wins at the No. 1 position in the Iowa lineup. Two of those wins came at the Big Ten indoor championships.

Head coach Steve Houghton said he believes in his nationally ranked Hawkeyes.

“We’re very proud of Garret and Michael,” the coach said in a release. “They really meshed well as a team last year, and the sky’s the limit this year.”

Houghton said he hopes that the pair can qualify for the 2012 Men’s All-American Championships, which is being held at the University of Tulsa Oct. 4-7.
