16_WT_IsenhourLaura

MISENHEIMER, N.C. -- The Catawba women’s tennis team picked up its second 5-4 win of the season, topping host Pfeiffer by that count on Wednesday afternoon at the Knapp Tennis Center.  Laura Isenhour (Salisbury, N.C./Carson) secured the winning point for the Catawba Indians in the last match completed.  Catawba improves to 2-0, while the Falcons fall to 0-1.

Pfeiffer led after doubles, winning at the top two flights, but Isenhour and Erisa Onchi (Tokyo, Japan) got the Lady Indians on the board with an 8-0 win at #3.  The Falcons would also win the top two flights in singles, but wins in the bottom four pushed Catawba to the win.

Emily Corcoran (Milton, Ga./St. Francis) won when her opponent retired at #4 and Catawba also got straight-set wins from Olivia Wooldridge (Wellington, New Zealand) at #3 and Kirstin Saltus (Warwick, Bermuda) to tie the match.  Isenhour took her match at #6 by the scores of 6-4 and 6-4.

Catawba is next set to host Lenoir-Rhyne in a non-conference match on Oct. 5 at 2 pm.
