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.

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.
