Seniors Jonas Diercx, Juan Estensoro, and Michael Swank all posted a pair of victories in singles play. The Hawkeyes out scored the Western Illinois Lethernecks 72 games to 19.

Missouri-Kansas City will enter the meet with a 1-3 record. The Kangaroos defeated Baker 7-0 in their season-opener but fell to No. 42 Drake in its most recent meeting. The Kangaroos are led by senior Tomas Patino and freshman Mike Psarros in the No. 1 and No. 2 singles spots.

The match is set to begin at 1:30 p.m. Admission is free.
