Lady Indians Open Season With 5-1 Loss to Pfeiffer
SALISBURY, NC -- The Catawba College women's tennis team fell to the Pfeiffer Falcolns 5-1 on Tuesday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center. The match marked the opening of both team's season and was cut short due to weather.
Pfeiffer jumped out to an early lead with a 3-0 sweep in doubles action despite a close 8-6 contest at the third flight. In singles play, Catawba's Rachel Rudisill picked up the lone point for the Lady Indians at the #6 spot. Rudisill claimed a pair of 6-2 wins over Pfeiffer's Alison Webb.
The Catawba women return to action on Saturday as they travel to JC Smith for a 10 a.m. match.
