SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba wrapped up its home tennis schedule, splitting South Atlantic Conference matches with Coker on Thursday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center.  The Catawba Indians men took a 6-3 win, while the Coker women pulled a 5-4 victory.  Catawba’s men are now 11-9 overall and 4-4 in the SAC, with the Cobras falling to 3-7 and 1-4.  Coker’s women improved to 3-5 and 2-3, while Catawba goes to 11-8 and 2-6.

The Catawba men came back from a 2-1 deficit after doubles to claim five of the six singles points.  Wins by Michael Patch (Great Missenden, England) and Lucas Miller (Wellington, New Zealand) evened the match then Catawba reeled off wins at the lower three flights to earn the win.  Adam Rocko (Johns Creek, Ga./Pinecrest Academy) won a narrow 7-6, 7-5 match at #6 and Cason Hiers (Ft. Myers, Fla./Cypress Lake) claimed a three-set win at #5.

The Catawba women fell behind 3-0 after doubles and nearly pulled out a win without its top two players out with an injury and an illness.  Singles wins by Maddy Henderson (Mequon, Wis./Divine Savior Holy Angels), Emily Corcoran (Milton, Ga./St. Francis) got Catawba its first two points then Kristen Rocko (Johns Creek, Ga./Pinecrest Academy) rallied from a set down to even the match.

Marina Geremias (Girona, Spain) got Catawba within a point of the win, but Coker was able to pull out three-set wins at the #2 and #6 flights to win the match.

Catawba travels to Lincoln Memorial on Saturday for a 2 pm match.
