March 3, 2003
PEORIA, ILL. - The Butler men's tennis team won its third straight match with a 5-2 victory against nonconference foe Bradley on Saturday (Mar. 1). The win improves the Bulldogs' record to 7-5 on the season.

Kevin Gill, who normally teams up with brother Brandon in No. 1 doubles, was paired with Mike Weaver and fell to Marko Marevic and Radek Guzik 8-5. Brandon Gill has been suffering back spasms, forcing him to be sidelined during the match.

Newmark defeated Guzik 7-6 (6), 6-4 at No. 3, Bartish recorded a 6-2, 6-4 win over Panzic at No. 5 and Bordow rounded out Butler's scoring with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Roebuck at the No. 6 position.
