Wingate Wins Pair Over Tennis
WINGATE, NC -- The Wingate tennis teams overpowered Catawba College Wednesday afternoon at the Wingate University Tennis Complex as the women were blanked 9-0 and the men handed an 8-1 loss. The Lady Indians fall to 8-13 overall and 1-7 in the South Atlantic Conference while the men drop to 14-8 and 3-5.
Alex MacDonald (Lowen Hutt, NEW ZEALAND/Hutt International HS) and Matthew Nicholson (Chawara, ZIMBABWE/Lomabundi HS) almost overcame Wingate’s #2 doubles team of Andrew Owen and Matthew Lichtenstein but eventually fell 8-6.
In #1 singles for the men, MacDonald came back from being down 3-0 in the first set to lead 4-3 against Flavio Rathsam, but couldn’t hold on losing 6-4, 6-0. Nicholson won his contest 6-4, 2-6 and 7-6 in a marathon match against the Bulldog’s Diego Martinez at #4.
The women were without the services of injured Steffi Cook (Alpharetta, GA/Milton HS) and Hannah Kovach (Salisbury, NC/E. Rowan HS), therefore only played five singles matches and two doubles.
Ally Prior (Raleigh, NC/Wakefield HS) and Olivia Myers (Lexington, NC/W. Davidson HS) lost a tough match at #2 doubles 8-3 to Olivia Poole and Tiffany Williams. Myers gave a valiant effort at #5 singles but dropped a 6-3, 6-0 decision to the Bulldog’s Kelli Ferguson.
Catawba travels to Belmont Abbey on Friday for a non-conference match with the Crusaders at 3 p.m.
