SALISBURY, NC -- Catawba claimed a pair of tight South Atlantic Conference tennis matches with visiting Carson-Newman on Friday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center.  The Catawba Indian men pulled out a 5-4 victory, while the women took a 6-3 decision. 

Catawba's men improved to 10-5 overall and 1-1 in the SAC with the narrow win.  The Indians took a 2-1 lead after doubles, but Carson-Newman (2-4, 0-2) rallied back to even the match at 4-4.  Freshman Aaron Vanhorenbeck (Oldsmar, FL/East Lake HS) won the final match 6-2, 6-2 at #6 singles to give Catawba the win. 

Vanhorenbeck had teamed with Jess Goodall (Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA/Northcliff) in a 9-7 win at #3 singles, while Mitchell McDonald (Wellington, NEW ZEALAND/Paraparaumu) and Jack Mordey (Leighton Buzzard, ENGLAND/Trinity) claimed an 8-6 win at #2 doubles.

Juan Sebastian Perez along with Austin Mackay had posted a win at #1 doubles then Perez won at #1 singles for the Eagles.  Paul Birdsong at #2 and Jonathan Allen at #5 got Carson-Newman to four points.  McDonald evened the match and set the stage for Vanhorenbeck.

In an equally tight women's match, the Lady Indians, now 11-4 overall and 1-1 in the SAC, rallied from a 2-1 deficit after doubles.  Catawba won singles at the top three spots all in third-set, 10-point tiebreakers.  Liz Renteria (Miramar, FL/Archbishop McCarthy HS) came back from a set down for a 12-10 win in the third set and Sloan Kessler (Onalaska, WI/La Crosse Aquinas HS) earned her third set win by a 22-20 count in the tiebreaker.
