17_MT_PicciLucaBA

ROCK HILL, S.C. (TheSAC.com) -- The South Atlantic Conference has released its 2019 Men’s and Women’s Preseason Tennis Coaches Polls. Both Catawba’s men and women were picked eighth by the coaches. Luca Picci was a second team preseason All-SAC selection, while Erisa Onchi was a second team pick on the women’s side.

Picci, a senior, went 7-7 at the No. 1 position last year and won five SAC matches. Onchi, a senior as well, was 9-8 at #1 and claimed four league wins.

Queens edged Wingate in the men’s poll by a single point with six first-place tallies to five for the Bulldogs. Wingate got six first-place votes to lead the women’s voting with Queens in second, earning three top nods. Tusculum, picked third, had two first-place votes.

The SAC spring tennis slate opened last weekend with Catawba getting back into action at home on Saturday against Belmont Abbey at 10 am. The 2019 SAC Tennis Championships are slated for April 16, 18-19 with quarterfinals at campus sites and the semifinals and finals at the Rock Hill Tennis Center in Rock Hill, S.C.
