SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Iowa men’s tennis senior Matt Hagan won twice on Sept. 27 in the pre-qualifying rounds of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-American Championships, becoming the lone Hawkeye to advance to the championship bracket on Sunday.

There, he fell in straight sets (6-3, 7-6) to Northwestern’s Strong Kirchheimer — the No. 27 player in the nation.

“Matt Hagan lost a tough one today,” interim coach Ross Wilson said in a release. “But it was good to see him put together consecutive wins in a very tough tournament.”

Freshman Lefteris Theodorou and junior Dominic Patrick won consolation matches on Sunday, and sophomore Nils Hallestrand and freshman Jake Jacoby were defeated in their consolation bouts.

The Hawkeyes have next weekend off before they travel to Norman, Oklahoma, for the Inetercollegiate Tennis Association Central Region on Oct. 9-13.
