Men's Tennis Falls Twice to Open Hilton Head Trip

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- Catawba fell in its first two matches of its spring break trip to Hilton Head Island.  The Catawba men lost to Northwood 6-3 on Saturday night and 7-2 to Palm Beach Atlantic on Sunday morning.  The Catawba Indians are 7-7 on the year.  Northwood improved to 2-1 and PBA to 3-2.

Freshman Cason Hiers (Fort Myers, Fla./Cypress Lake) has accounted for three of Catawba’s points.  He claimed wins at #5 singles in both matches and teamed with Ryan Reid (Claremont, N.C./Newton-Conover) for a win over Northwood at #2 doubles. 

Catawba had led Northwood after doubles as Michael Patch (Great Missenden, England) and Luca Picci (Harare, Zimbabwe) had won at #1 doubles, but only Hiers could win at singles in closely contested matches.  The Indians could not grab a doubles point against Palm Beach Atlantic with Lucas Miller (Wellington, New Zealand) joining Hiers with a singles win.

The men will face Salem International on Monday and Michigan Tech on Tuesday to conclude its trip.
