The Buena Vista men's tennis team returned to Iowa Conference action on Saturday morning, and the Beavers dropped a handful of narrow matches against visiting Central College en route to a tough 8-1 loss to the Dutch.
The Dutch swept through doubles play, but only by a combined five points.
Three of the six singles match-ups went to the decisive third set tiebreaker, and Dillon Nevius was able to come out on the winning end of his bout for the team's lone win of the day.
Despite the loss, BVU is still 7-5 overall (3-2) and has clinched a spot into the team tournament played later this spring.
