Velazquez secures lone point with win at #1 singles
MARS HILL, NC -- Top-seeded Presbyterian eliminated fourth-seeded Catawba from the 2007 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Men’s Tennis Tournament with a 5-1 semifinal win on Friday morning at the Hart Tennis Complex on the campus of Mars Hill College. The Blue Hose improved to 16-5 and advance to face No. 2-seed Tusculum in the afternoon final. The Catawba Indians fall to 19-6 and will await a possible regional invitation.
Presbyterian took quick control of the match by sweeping the three doubles matches. Catawba picked up its lone point at #1 singles with a straight sets victory by SAC Player of the Year, Jose Velazquez (Santa Domingo, DOMINCAN RERPUBLIC). Matthew Martin (Surry, BC, CANADA) earned his second point of the day for the Blue Hose with a win at #2 singles, while Ruan Olivier (Welkom, S. AFRICA) ended the match with a win at the No. 3 spot.
