SALISBURY, N.C. -- The Catawba men’s tennis team dropped a tight 4-3 decision to visiting Bluefield State on Sunday afternoon at the Johnson Tennis Center. The Catawba Indians fall to 1-1 on the season.

Bluefield State claimed all three doubles matches to go 1-0 heading to singles. The Indians were able to split those six matches playing without top player Luca Picci, but came up a point short.

Ryen Reid won in straight sets at #2 singles with Cason Hiers, at #3, and Adam Rocko, at #4, posting wins in three sets. Rocko rallied from a set down and claimed a third-set tiebreaker 7-4 for the win. Carlos Thireau battled back to win the final three games to win at #6 singles to give the Big Blue the win.

Catawba will next face Newberry in a non-conference match on Oct. 25 at 2 pm in Rock Hill, S.C.
