17_WT_GeremaisMarinaBA

CAYCE, S.C. -- Newberry posted wins over Catawba in both men’s and women’s South Atlantic Conference tennis action on Tuesday afternoon at the Cayce Tennis Center.  The Newberry men took a 9-0 victory to improve to 10-2 overall and 2-0 in the SAC, while the women won 8-1 in moving to 10-3 and 2-0.  The Catawba Indian men are now 7-5 and 3-2 with the women falling to 9-3 and 2-3.

Catawba’s lone point came in the women’s match where Marina Geremias (Girona, Spain) took a win at #6 singles.  Geremias was inserted into the lineup after the Lady Indians’ #1 player, Erisa Onchi (Tokyo, Japan) was injured during doubles.

The best chance to win for the Catawba men came at #2 doubles where Ryan Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover) and Cason Hiers (Fort Myers, Fla./Cypress Lake) fell 9-8, losing 8-6 in a tiebreaker.

Catawba will travel next week to spend spring break in Hilton Head where each team will play four matches starting on March 4.
