DELAND, Fla. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - The Green Bay men's tennis team (9-5) began a three-match stretch in the state of Florida on Sunday with a 5-2 win over Kennesaw State (3-9) in a neutral site contest at the Mandy Stoll Tennis Center on the campus of Stetson University.

The Phoenix was led by a pair of seniors, as Erik Finkenbrink (Duelmen, Germany) and Craig Cox (Surrey, England) each picked up a pair of victories. The two teamed up for an 8-4 win at No. 1 doubles to help Green Bay earn the doubles point, then Finkenbrink beat the Owls' Tobi Menhofer at No. 1 (5-7, 6-1, 10-2) and Cox knocked off Maksim Yorsh at No. 2 (6-3, 6-2).

Also earning singles wins for the Phoenix were freshmen Leopold Gomez Islinger (Weiden, Germany) at No. 3 and Rowan Isaaks (London, England) at No. 5.
