SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba tennis teams returned to the court for the spring season on Sunday and both recorded wins over visiting Emmanuel at the Johnson Tennis Center.  The Catawba Indian men improved to 3-2 with a 7-2 victory and the women upped their record to 5-0 with a 6-3 win.  Emmanuel’s men fell to 1-6 and the women to 0-7.

The men opened with a 2-1 lead after doubles.  Michael Patch (Great Missenden, England) and Luca Picci (Harare, Zimbabwe) combined to win at #1 doubles and won their singles matches in identical 7-5, 6-4 fashion.  Freshman Ryen Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover) also claimed a win in doubles and singles.

The Lady Indians also led 2-1 after doubles and moved within a point of the win after a default and Erisa Onchi (Tokyo, Japan) straight-set win at #1 singles.  Olivia Wooldridge (Wellington, New Zealand) and Maddy Henderson (Mequon, Wisc./Divine Savior Holy Angels) got Catawba over the top as both rallied from a set down to win in a third set super tiebreaker.

The tennis teams will open conference play on Thursday at Anderson at 2 pm.
