Sept. 30, 2002

Milwaukee, Wis. - The University of Illinois at Chicago men's tennis team took its game to Wisconsin over the weekend and performed well at the Marquette Invitational.

There were no team scores, but the Flames held their own against the likes of DePaul, IUPUI, Wright State, UW-Green Bay, Chicago State, Eastern Illinois and the host Golden Eagles.

James Wonneberg led the Flames, as the junior college transfer from Elgin CC took home the consolation championship in Flight 6 singles play, beating Zac Breneman of IUPUI, 6-4, 6-4.

Wonneberg added to his weekend in doubles play, teaming with Pat Zufan to win the Flight 3 doubles bracket, defeating Davis and Dorn of UW-Green Bay, 8-3, in the title match.

Senior Nick Bodmer continued his solid play with a pair of wins in Flight 1 before bowing out in the championship tilt. He now has 56 career wins, best on the UIC all-time list.

The Flames will be back on the courts on Saturday, October 5, when they host Chicago State at 10:00 a.m. as part of Alumni Day at UIC. Matches will be played behind the PEB at the Flames Courts.
