Catawba Sweeps LR in Men's Tennis, Women Win 6-2

HICKORY, NC --Catawba College defeated host Lenoir-Rhyne University in men's and women's tennis on Thursday afternoon at Hickory High School. The Catawba men finished the day with a 9-0 sweep over the Bears while the Lady Indians won by a 6-2 margin. With the pair of wins both Catawba teams improve to 3-4 in the fall season.

Catawba's men fairly easily handled the Bears in all three doubles matchups winning 8-0, 8-3, and 8-2, respectively. In singles play three of six matches went to 10-point super tiebreakers. Matthew Nicholson, Michael Patch and Iago Montero Nunez won in the tiebreakers.

In women's action, the Lady Indians started off with a 2-1 lead after winning at #1 and #3 doubles. Lenoir-Rhyne started off with a win at the #1 flight to even the set up at 2-2. The second seeded match between Lauren Sledd and Zorica Djuric was left unfinished due to a late start, resulting in a potential tie between the two teams. Maddy Henderson, Rachel Rudisill and Andrea Bell won their matches for the Lady Indians to claim victory for Catawba. Oliva Myers also won her tightly contested match at the #4 position against Lenoir-Rhyne's Nateesha Hurtt. Myers took the first set 7-5 and was tied 4-4 before Hurtt was force to default due to injury.
