GREENSBORO, NC-- The Covenant men's tennis team got back to .500 by turning in a convincing performance in a 9-0 victory over Greensboro in a USA South conference match on Friday afternoon.

Covenant moves to 2-2 on the year, 1-0 in conference play. It is Greensboro's first match of the season as they fall to 0-1 on the year and in conference play.

Chris Cox and Roy Anderson each won their singles matches 6-0, 6-0, Cox from the No. 2 slot and Anderson from the No. 6.

Two other Scots, No. 1 Matthew Harvie and No. 4 John Granholm each won one of their sets 6-0 and took down their opponents in two sets, while Dan Madden, from the No. 5 spot, won his sets by identical 6-2 scores.
