Men's Tennis Notches Win Over Salem International
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- The Catawba men beat the afternoon rain and claimed a 6-0 win over Salem International in tennis action on Monday afternoon. The win improves the Catawba Indians to 8-7. Catawba’s women weren’t as lucky. Leading Ashland 2-1 after doubles, the Lady Indians were not able to complete any singles matches and the match was washed out.
The men lost only seven games in total in the six completed matches. Luca Picci (Harare, Zimbabwe), Lucas Miller (Wellington, New Zealand) and Adam Rocko (Johns Creek, Ga./Pinecrest Academy) took singles wins to follow up a doubles victory. Iago Nunez (Lugo, Spain) and Brad Smethurst (Oakville, Ont., Canada) were winners at #2 doubles.
The men are scheduled to take on Michigan Tech on Tuesday at 8:30 am in its final match at Hilton Head. The women will face Davis & Elkins.
