Women's Tennis Rolls, Men Fall in Tight Match at Bluefield State

BLUEFIELD, WV -- Catawba concluded the fall portion of its men’s and women’s tennis schedule by splitting matches with Bluefield State on Thursday afternoon.  The Catawba women rolled to a 9-0 win, but the men suffered a tight 5-4 loss to the Big Blues.  Both teams stand at 4-2 on the year.

The men led 2-1 after doubles, but Bluefield fought back in singles, winning tight matches at #1, #3, #4 and the #5 slots.  Thomas Mitchell (Nanaimo, BC, CANADA) claimed wins in doubles and single, rallying from a 7-2 deficit in a third-set super tiebreaker to win 10-8. 

Catawba’s women lost just two games in doubles and four in singles in sweeping to the victory.  Maggie McKee (Mt. Airy, NC/Mt. Airy HS), Steffi Cook (Alpharetta, GA/Milton HS) and Olivia Myers (Lexington, NC/W. Davidson HS) did not drop a game in their singles wins.
