Tennis Teams Fall to LR in Close 5-4 Decisions

HICKORY, N.C. -- Lenoir-Rhyne knocked off Catawba 5-4 in both men's and women's South Atlantic Conference tennis action on Tuesday at Hickory High School.  The Bear men improve to 11-9 overall and 4-6 in the SAC with the women moving to 9-11 and 3-7.  The Catawba Indian men end their season at 12-12 and 4-7, while the women close their season at 13-11 and 2-9.

The women's match was extremely tight as four of the singles matches went three sets.  Catawba salvaged a point at #1 doubles as Erisa Onchi (Tokyo, Japan) and Sophie Hirsch (Markkleeberg, Germany) took a 9-7 win to head to singles with the Bears up 2-1.

The top two singles matches were decided in straight sets with Hirsch getting a win for Catawba at #2.  Emily Corcoran (Milton, Ga./St. Francis) got a win at #6 for the Lady Indians, but LR took wins at #4 and #5 as they won each third set 6-4 to secure the match.  Olivia Wooldridge (Wellington, New Zealand) got the other point for Catawba.

Catawba's men would also trail 2-1 after doubles.  Ryan Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover) and Cason Hiers (Fort Myers, Fla./Cypress Lake) got the doubles points with an 8-6 win at #2.  The Indians couldn't overcome the deficit as the teams split the six singles matches.  Hiers, Luca Picci (Harare, Zimbabwe) and Adam Rocko (Johns Creek, Ga./Pinecrest Academy) were the singles winners for Catawba.
