GREENEVILLE, TN -- Catawba College, ranked 39th in NCAA II, defeated host and NCAA II 38th-ranked Tusculum 7-2 in South Atlantic Conference women's tennis action on Tuesday afternoon at Nichols Tennis Center. The win improves Catawba to 14-6 overall and 3-2 in the SAC, pulling the Lady Indians into a tie for third place. Tusculum falls to 15-2 and 5-1, sharing the SAC championship with Presbyterian. The Lady Indians recorded a huge point to start the day with an upset win at No. 1 doubles as Gina Ayala and Amy Behrman knocked off TC's Lesley Murray and Pam Holt 8-3 in pro sets. It marks the first time that Murray and Holt have been defeated in doubles play ending a 37-match streak that started last year. Murray opened singles play with a 6-3, 6-1 win over Ayala at #1, but the Lady Indians won the final five singles matches, including three-set wins at #2 and #3. Behrman fought back after dropping the opening set 6-3, rallying 6-2, 6-4 in the final two sets to knock off Holt. At #3, Catawba's Bailey Gainey won a three-set match over Gabreila Mora, while Taryn Gordon and Rachel Morgan won in straight sets, but had to win a first-set tie-breaker.
