WINGATE, NC -- Catawba held off host Wingate to claim a 5-3 win in men’s tennis action on Tuesday afternoon at the Wingate tennis courts.  The Catawba Indians improve to 2-1, while the Bulldogs drop their opener.  Freshmen Matt King (Concord, NSW, AUSTRALIA/Sydney Boys) and Thomas Mitchell (Nanaimo, BC, CANADA/Pendleton School) won key singles matches in third-set super tie-breakers to lead Catawba. 

King, who also won at #2 doubles, rallied from a set deficit to win his tie-breaker 15-13.  Mitchell came back after losing his second set for an 11-9 win in the tie-breaker.  Sean Soltan (Vetlanda, SWEDEN/Njudungsgynbasiet) also won in both singles and doubles action for Catawba.  Matt Lichtenstein claimed two points for the Bulldogs.
