MISENHEIMER, N.C. -- Catawba leveled its men’s tennis record at 1-1 with a 6-3 victory over host Pfeiffer on Thursday afternoon at the Knapp Tennis Center.  It was the first dual match for the Falcons on the season.

Catawba got out of the gates with a pair of wins in doubles.  Lucas Miller (Wellington, New Zealand) and Luca Picci (Harare, Zimbabwe) stayed unbeaten after two matches at the #2 spot with an 8-5 victory, while freshman Adam Rocko (Johns Creek, Ga./Pinecrest Academy) and Brad Smethurst (Oakville, Ontario, Canada) claimed an 8-5 win at #3.

The Indians picked up four wins in singles.   Michael Patch (Great Missenden, England) rallied after dropping the opening set 6-0 to claim a win in a third set super tiebreaker to move to 2-0 on the year.  The Indians took wins at the bottom three flights from Ryen Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover) at #4, Rocko at #5 and Smethurst at #6.

Catawba next hosts Lenoir-Rhyne in a non-conference match on Wednesday, October 5 at 2 pm.
