17_MT_ReidRyanBA

SALISBURY, N.C. -- Tusculum topped host Catawba in both men’s and women’s South Atlantic Conference tennis action on Friday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center.  The Tusculum men took a tight 5-3 win in men’s action with the Pioneer women claiming a 7-2 victory.  The TC men improve to 9-4 overall and 4-1 in the SAC with the women moving to 10-4 and 5-0.  The Catawba Indian men fall to 9-8 and 3-3 with the women now 10-6 and 2-4.

In men’s action, Tusculum pulled out to a 2-1 lead after doubles.  Catawba had won at #2, but the Pioneers got a close 8-6 win at #1 then took a 9-7 decision at #3.  The Pioneers would take the top two flights in singles, including #2 in three sets. 

Catawba came back with wins at #3 and #4 by Lucas Miller (Wellington, New Zealand) and Ryan Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover), but TC win in straight sets at #6 singles to earn the five points.  Reid and Cason Hiers (Fort Myers, Fla./Cypress Lake) were winners at the #2 doubles spot.

Tusculum’s women swept the three doubles match to jump to a 3-0 lead.  Wins at the top two singles flights secured the match win.  Marina Geremias (Girona, Spain) and Maddy Henderson (Mequon, Wis./Devine Savior Holy Angels) got the Catawba wins at #4 and #5 singles.

The teams return to the courts on Sunday, hosting Carson-Newman at 1 pm.
