Bears top Lions in close match!

Hickory, NC – The Emmanuel College Men's Tennis Team traveled to Lenoir-Rhyne University this Friday to play a NCAA Regional Match. The doubles matches at #2 Enrique Alcacer/Juan Carlos Romero and at #3 Jorge Cañadas/Guillaume Watteeuw were decided by details but enough to prevent a point that would favor the Lions. With singles play starting with a 3-0 against Emmanuel, the matches kept being competitive on every court. Emmanuel finally earned the first point by the hands of the Freshman, Jorge Canadas. The Bears would eventually snag the 2 points they needed to clinch the match but Guillaumme Watteeuw and David Forehand would also earn wins at #5 and #6 for the Lions.

Emmanuel will keep their busy Spring schedule with 3 more matches this coming week, starting Thursday when they will travel to Erskine College for the first Conference Carolinas event of the season! First serve is scheduled for 2PM!
