SALISBURY, N.C. -- Lenoir-Rhyne held on to win both South Atlantic Conference tennis matches against host Catawba on Wednesday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center. The Bears won 5-4 on the men’s side and 6-3 in the women’s match.  The LR men go to 12-6 overall and 3-4 in the SAC with the women standing at 9-7 and 2-5. The Catawba men are 5-9 and 2-6 with the women 4-11 and 0-8.

Lenoir-Rhyne’s men took a 3-0 lead after doubles and were just able to hang on, winning two singles. Three of the six singles matches went to three sets with the other three having a tiebreaker decide one of the sets. Ryen Reid and Samuel Schwarz were winners in three sets for Catawba. Luca Picci earned a win with a second-set tiebreaker and Cason Hiers won, taking his first set in a tiebreaker. Tales Miranda won the big match for LR as he rallied for a three-set win, taking the final set in a tiebreaker.

Catawba’s women also battled in tight matches. LR won two of three doubles, including #1 in a tiebreaker. Sophie Hirsch combined with Kristen Rocko for a win at #2 doubles then won her singles match at #2. Erisa Onchi claimed a win at #1 for Catawba, but the Bears won the lower four flights, including two in three sets.

The tennis teams will be in action on Friday, hosting Mars Hill at 1 pm in matches originally scheduled for Saturday.
