KALAMAZOO, Mich. ( - The Green Bay men's tennis team had a strong second day of competition at the Western Michigan Jack Vredevelt Invitational on Saturday, picking up six singles and three doubles wins.

Sophomore Howard Scott (Exeter, England) posted an unbeaten record on Saturday, winning twice in singles action and once in doubles. Scott started his day by teaming up with junior Michael Tenzer (Neuried, Germany) for an 8-6 victory over Notre Dame's duo of Ryan Bandy and Kenneth Sabacinski in the Gold Doubles flight. In Gold Singles, Scott knocked off WMU's Ruben Grenier 7-6 (4), 6-3 before taking down Xavier's Jimmy Roebker 7-5, 7-5.

Sophomore Leopold Gomez Islinger (Weiden, Germany) had a strong showing for the second straight day, following up Friday's singles win with two more individual victories as well as a doubles victory. Gomez Islinger won his Black Singles match against Xavier's Freddy Abunku 6-0, 6-1, his Gold Singles contest against Illinois State's Rodrigo Oliveira 6-3, 6-4 and also paired with classmate Rowan Isaaks for an 8-3 win at Black Doubles.
