Women's Tennis Defeated by Newberry at SAC Tournament
ROCK HILL, SC -- Newberry avenged an earlier 5-4 loss to Catawba by claiming a 5-2 win in an opening round match of the 2013 Food Lion South Atlantic Conference Women's Tennis Tournament on Thursday afternoon at the Rock Hill Tennis Center. The fifth-seeded Wolves improve to 14-10 and advance to face top-seeded Wingate in a Friday semifinal. The Catawba Indians end their season at 15-9.
Catawba battled back in doubles to trail just 2-1 entering singles after a 9-7 win at the #2 spot by Lauren Sledd (Roanoke, VA/Cave Spring HS) and Ally Prior (Raleigh, NC/Wakefield HS). Newberry did not allow Catawba to gain much ground in singles. Sledd got the singles win for Catawba when her opponent retired in the second set.
