10_MT_MacdonaldAlexBA

NEWBERRY, SC -- The Catawba College men’s and women’s tennis teams split decisions with Newberry on Wednesday afternoon in South Atlantic Conference action at the Cannon Tennis Courts.  The Catawba Indians fell 6-3 in men’s action.  A third set tiebreaker won by Catawba’s Ally Prior (Raleigh, NC/Wakefield HS) decided the women’s action at 5-4.  The Catawba men are now 11-10 overall and 2-5 in the SAC while the women improve to 13-8 and 3-4.  The Newberry men improve to 11-7 and the women fall to 11-8.  Both Newberry teams are 4-3 in the SAC.

The Lady Indians jumped out front early winning at the #2 and #3 doubles.  Newberry would respond in singles play by winning four matches.  Catawba’s Liz Renteria (Mirimar, FL/Archbishop McCarthy HS) and Andrea Bell (Franklin, NC/Franklin HS) each won their matches in third set tiebreakers.  Tied at four apiece Prior and Newberry’s Marina Ziehe battled at the #4 seed to determine the match.  Ziehe took the first set 6-1 before Prior would respond with 7-6 and 10-5 victories.

In men’s action, Catawba fell behind early after dropping two points in doubles action.  In singles play only Alex Macdonald (Lowen Hutt, NEW ZEALAND/Hutt International) and Matthew Nicholson (Chawara, ZIMBABWE/Lomabundi) won their games. Both Macdonald and Nicholson won in third set tiebreakers. 

The Indians return to action on Saturday to take on Brevard at the Johnson Tennis Center at 1pm.
