Tennis Falls to Mount Olive in Conference Carolina/SAC Challenge

WILSON, NC -- The Catawba College tennis teams both fell to Mount Olive on Friday afternoon in the Conference Carolina vs. South Atlantic Conference Challenge.  Barton College hosted the two day tournament that continues on Saturday.  Both Catawba teams fell 5-0 to the Trojans.  The Catawba men fall to 1-3 on the season.  The Lady Indians are now 2-2 overall.  This was the first match of the year for both Mount Olive teams.

In men’s action, Mount Olive started with a dominant sweep in doubles play.  Catawba’s duo of Jack Mordey and Iago Montero Nunez played the closest doubles match at the third flight despite losing 8-5.  Mount Olive’s top two in singles closed out the match defeating Pierce Hoover and Matthew Nicholson.  All other singles matchups were left unfinished.

The Catawba women were also swept in doubles play forcing scores of 8-4, 8-2 and 8-4, respectively.  Maddy Henderson came close to picking up a point for the Indians but was forced to retired in the second set.  The Lady Indians played without sophomore Liz Renteria who traditionally played #1 singles and doubles.

Catawba returns to action later in the day against Limestone.  Match time is set for 6:00 pm.
