KALAMAZOO, Mich. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) – Led by tournament MVP Howard Scott (Exeter, England), the Green Bay men’s tennis team concluded its successful weekend at the three-day Western Michigan Jack Vredevelt Invitational on Sunday afternoon. The Phoenix posted five singles and three doubles wins on Sunday, bringing the team’s tournament total to 12 singles and eight doubles victories.

Scott finished his MVP weekend with six total wins – three in singles and three in doubles. Joining the sophomore on the eight-member all-tournament team were sophomore Leopold Gomez Islinger (Weiden, Germany) and junior Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany), who were both two-time winners on day three.

Scott recorded two more wins on Sunday after his three-win performance on Saturday, defeating Xavier’s Mesa Mei 7-6 (5), 2-6, 1-0 (8) in the Gold Singles flight before teaming up with Tenzer for a dominant 8-2 triumph over Cleveland State’s Ali Shabib and Jorg Van Der Vloet in Gold Doubles.

Gomez Islinger and Tenzer also grabbed Gold Singles wins, as Gomez Islinger downed Notre Dame’s Kenneth Sabacinski 1-6, 7-5, 1-0 (11) and Tenzer beat Illinois State’s Erik Brunskog 6-1, 6-2. In addition, Gomez Islinger teamed up with classmate Rowan Isaaks (London, England) for an 8-5 victory over WMU’s Jim Beckwith and Stephen Payne.

Other winners for the Phoenix on Sunday were Isaaks and sophomore Joey Leto (Downers Grove, Ill.) in the Brown Singles flight. Leto and junior Michael Tebon (Excelsior, Minn.) also teamed for a close, 8-7 (4) win in Black Doubles.

Green Bay returns to action next weekend at the Purdue Invitational in West Lafayette, Ind.
