Rosenfeld and Subramanian fall at Seminole Invitational

The University of Miami men’s tennis doubles duo of junior David Rosenfeld and senior Vivek Subramanian put together a strong run at the Seminole Invitational, as they advanced to the doubles final.

Unfortunately, they were unable to take the final step and push through, as they were downed, 9-7, by Florida State’s duo of Clint Bowles and Jean-Yves Aubone.

Despite the loss, the run to the finals for Rosenfeld and Subramanian was quite impressive as they defeated three straight opponents after a first round bye, including FSU’s tandem and the No. 26-ranked doubles team of Sam Chang and Maciek Sykut, 8-6.

Thorpe Award semi-finalists include Phillips

When the semi-finalists for the Jim Thorpe award, presented to the nation’s top defensive back, were presented, it came to no surprise that University of Miami junior safety Kenny Phillips was on the list.

This list, which includes the nation’s finest hard hitting defensive backs, will be narrowed down to three players on Nov. 19. It has always been held that the winner of this award displays outstanding play on the field, athletic skills and talent and high character.

Phillips has been one of Miami’s top defensive players since arriving to the team and he displays strong leadership qualities and intelligence on the field. Phillips has 78 tackles and 5.5 tackles for a loss. He also has one interception, three passes broken up and three fumbles forced.
