PEORIA, Ill. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's tennis team competed in its final road contest of the regular season on Friday, defeating Bradley 5-2 in Peoria, Ill., at the Clubs at River City. The Phoenix swept the doubles matches and took four of the six singles matches in the win to improve to improve to 13-7.

"It was great to go on the road and earn a victory over a good Bradley team," Green Bay head coach Mark Thomas said. "All three doubles teams played great and we had some guys really step up in singles."

After winning the doubles point, the Phoenix won the No. 1, 2 and 3 singles matches, as well as the No. 6 match.
