ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Lobo Samir Iftikhar is heading back from the 2013 ITA Mountain Regionals with an impressive 5-1 singles record after coming up short in the final round of the Men’s Open Singles Championship. 

Iftikhar was defeated in the championship match by Denver University’s Henry Craig on Sunday morning with a final score of 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. It was a tough three-match battle and unfortunately the DU sophomore pulled off the upset.

This was the fourth consecutive year that the University of New Mexico competed in the Mountain Regional championship match.

Iftikhar represented the Lobos well on the fifth and final day of the 2013 regional championships.

This was the last event for the men's tennis fall tournament season.
