Hayashida Falls in Quarterfinals at ITA Midwest Regionals

LAWRENCE, Kan. – University of Iowa sophomore Daianne Hayashida had her ITA Midwest Regionals run come to an end in the quarterfinals Sunday at the Jayhawk Tennis Center.

Hayashida lost in straight sets to Oklahoma’s Dana Guzman, 6-0, 6-1.

During the week in Lawrence, the Hawkeyes went 5-4 in singles competition and 3-2 in doubles competition, excluding the extra exhibition matches that were played.

“I am proud for the run that Dai had, making it to the quarters with an elite group of players. I’m happy for her, she learned a lot and I think it will take a lot of confidence from this. We have some really productive things to work on away from the event. Overall, it was good for Jess, Poko and Pia to compete and have a great weekend of competitive matches. We’re going to get home and get back to practice as we have a lot to work to do before our final event in November.”

The Hawkeyes will have their final fall competition in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Las Vegas International tournament starting Nov. 10.
