Women's Tennis Loses to Tusculum 5-4 in SAC Tournament

GREENEVILLE, TC -- Tusculum rallied for a 5-4 win over visiting Catawba to advance to the semifinals of the Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women’s Tennis Tournament on Tuesday afternoon at Nichols Tennis Complex.  The third-seeded Pioneers improve to 15-5, while the sixth-seeded Catawba Indians end their season at 13-12.

           Samantha Cantu rallied from a set down to win a three-set thriller at No. 3 singles to lift the Pioneers to the win.  Catawba jumped out to a 2-1 advantage after doubles play as the visitors captured points at the top two flights.  Lauren Fluegge and KT Rebadow outlasted the Tusculum duo of Danae Valderrama and Cantu, 8-6 at No. 1 doubles.  Julia McKinzie and Andi Binney tallied Catawba's second point with an 8-4 win over Bronwyn Hartley and Caroline Crowe at #2.  TC salvaged a point at No. 3 doubles as Amanda Pike and Jennifer Sparks defeated Meri Cartmill and Nikiah Knox by an 8-1 count.
 
            The two teams would split the first four singles matches.  Valderrama defeated Fluegge 6-4, 6-3 at No. 1 singles, while McKinzie answered with a 6-1, 7-5 victory over TC's Sparks at No. 2 singles.  Hartley rebounded from her doubles set back with a 6-3, 6-1 victory over Rebadow at the No. 4 flight, while Knox gave the Catawba Indians a 4-3 advantage with her 6-4, 7-6 victory at the No. 6 singles.
 
            Pike tied the match at 4-4 with her grueling 7-6, 7-5 win over Cartmill at No. 5 singles, leaving the third flight match as the deciding point.  Binney captured the first set 6-4, but Cantu answered with a 6-0 win in the second frame and took the third set 6-3.
