Catawba had lost two of three doubles with Rachel Rudisill (Gastonia, NC/Highland Tech HS) and Andrea Bell (Franklin, NC/Franklin HS) combining at the #3 slot to win the point for the Lady Indians. Catawba fought back to even the match with singles wins at the #4 to #6 spots. Ally Prior (Raliegh, NC/Wakefield HS) rallied from a set down at #4, while Lauren Sledd (Roanoke, VA/Cave Spring HS) and Olivia Myers (Lexington, NC/W.
