Gaffney, SC – The Emmanuel College Tennis Team Traveled to Limestone College today looking for an important Conference win.

The singles play kicked off with the overall score in favor of the home team, which also controlled the rest of the event. The Lions had a chance to grab a point on court #4 with Enrique Alcacer who came back from a 5-0 deficit on the first set and fought back before falling just short by 7-5 3-6 10-7. The sole point of the day came from the Freshman, Guillaume Watteeuw on court #5 by a solid 8-3 win.
