The Iowa men’s tennis team returned to Iowa City with a lot of momentum heading into the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Regional Tournament later this week.

The weekend started off with five players winning in singles and doubles team members Chase Tomlins and Joey White winning their only match of the day.

Matt Hagan highlighted the first day by defeating the No. 2 seed Anthony Delcore of Wake Forest in straight sets (6-3, 6-3).

The team grabbed four victories on the second day, two in singles and two in doubles.

Senior Juan Estensorro defeated Tomas Hanzilk of Penn State to advance to the consolation finals on the final day of the tournament.

In doubles, Tomlins and White won again and played in the fifth-place consolation game on day three.

The third day was the most impressive with the team recording six wins — four in singles and two in doubles.

Tomlins and White took the fifth-place consolation title, and Nils Hallestrand and Michael Swank took the consolation final in the C doubles bracket.

Estensorro couldn’t pull out a victory and fell to Jon Ho of Wake Forest (6-4, 7-5) in the A2 consolation finals.

Both Jonas Dierckx and Hallestrand picked up wins against the Nittany Lion’ top player.

Overall, head coach Steve Houghton was pleased with the weekend.

“It was a good tournament for our team,” he said in a release. “There were ups and downs, wins and losses, but our team fought hard against some really stiff competition.”
