Catawba’s men dropped a pair of matches over the weekend against Mars Hill and Lincoln Memorial in South Atlantic Conference action.  The Catawba Indians fell 5-4 to both opponents, dropping to 13-9 overall and 3-6 in the SAC. 

The men jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead after doubles action against Mars Hill on Friday.  Mars Hill rallied to win five of the singles matches to take the victory.  Senior Tom McCormack (Winchester, ENGLAND/Peter Symonds HS) was the only Tribe member to pick up a win.

On Saturday, Catawba went into singles play behind 2-1 against the Railsplitters.  Alex Macdonald (Lowen Hutt, NEW ZEALAND/Hutt International HS) and Matthew Nicholson (Chawara, ZIMBABWE/Lomagundi HS) paired up at the second flight for the lone doubles win.  In singles action, both teams split 3-3 with Catawba winning at the second, fourth, and sixth seeds behind Thomas Mitchell (Nanaimo, BC, CANADA/Pendleton HS), Pierce Hoover (Durham, NC/N. Durham HS), and Nicholson, respectively.
