SALISBURY, NC -- Tusculum took a 6-3 win over host Catawba in South Atlantic Conference men’s tennis action on Sunday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center.  The 36th-ranked Pioneers improve to 8-5 overall and 2-1 in the SAC, while the Catawba Indians fall to 9-6 and 0-3.

Tusculum grabbed a 2-1 lead after doubles, getting a big point at #1 as Thomas Rees and Drew Kiser won in a tie-breaker.  Catawba tried to rally, getting wins at the top two singles spots by Sean Soltan (Vetlanda, SWEDEN/Njudjungsgymnasiet) and Matt King (Concord, NSW, AUSTRALIA/Sydney Boys), but the Pioneers won at the lower four positions.  Kister, Hunter Beal and Steven Lin each won in singles and doubles for Tusculum.  King teamed with Tom McCormack (Winchester, ENGLAND/Symonds) as Catawba won at #2 doubles.
