LWC Tennis competes in SE Challenge Thurs-Sat
By Matt Wurzburger
The Lindsey Wilson men's and women's tennis teams travel to the Bacon Park Tennis Center, 6262 Skidaway Rd., Savannah, GA, for three days of competition at the Southeastern Challenge this Thursday through Saturday.
The No. 4-ranked men's team faces No. 7-ranked William Carey (Miss.) at 10amCT on Thursday. The next day, the Blue Raiders (1-1) play two matches against No. 16-ranked Reinhardt (Ga.) and NCAA Division II Armstrong State (Ga.) at 11amCT and 5pmCT, respectively, before finishing with SCAD Savannah (Ga.) at 10amCT on Saturday.
The No. 2-ranked women's team opens against No. 3-ranked SCAD Savannah on Thursday at 2pmCT. Friday features matches against SCAD Atlanta (Ga.) and Armstrong State at 10amCT and 5pmCT, respectively. The Blue Raiders (1-1) conclude their trip on Saturday with a 1pmCT match against No. 4-ranked Brenau (Ga.).
Lindsey Wilson's men's team last competed on Feb. 4, a 6-3 road victory over NCAA Division II Bellarmine (Ky.).
The Blue Raiders took the first two points of the match and never trailed. Javier Raya and Filip Persson and Tomas Depiaggio and Ivan Solans Diaz each picked up doubles wins to give Lindsey Wilson the early 2-0 lead.
Bellarmine won the final double match and the first singles match to draw even at 2-2. The two teams then traded wins in the next two singles matches, but Lindsey Wilson ran away late, taking each of the last three singles matches to secure the victory.
Lindsey Wilson's women's team also won its first match of the season, 6-3, over Bellarmine on Feb. 4.
The Blue Raiders jumped out to a 2-1 lead following the conclusion of double matches thanks to victories by Fiona Curty and Maria Prados Cid and Alex Shchipakina and Jovana Peric.
Minja Gligic increased Lindsey Wilson's advantage to 3-1 with a 6-0, 6-1 victory in the No. 3 singles match.
Following a Bellarmine win in the top-seeded singles match, the Blue Raiders rallied off three-straight singles matches to seal the win.
William Carey men's tennis opens its season against the Blue Raiders on Thursday. Last season, the Crusaders posted a 13-8 record and reached the NAIA Men's Tennis National Championship Tournament.
Reinhardt men's tennis has yet to play a match this year and opens its season with SCAD Savannah on Thursday. The Eagles went 14-4 in 2016 and qualified for the national championship before losing in their first match.
Armstrong State's men's team enters the Southeastern Challenge with a 1-0 record after defeating Coastal Georgia 9-0 on Friday. The Pirates are currently ranked No. 3 in ITA's NCAA Division II rankings.
SCAD Savannah men's tennis is 2-1 this season. Last time out, the Bees fell to Southeastern (Fla.), 5-4 on Saturday.
SCAD Savannah's women's team enters competition with a 3-1 record. The Bees lost their opener to Georgia Southern, 4-3, but responded with three-consecutive wins.
SCAD Atlanta women's tennis dropped its opener to Young Harris (Ga.), 8-1, on Feb. 5.
Armstrong State's women's team defeated Coastal Georgia 8-0 on Friday. The Pirates won their 10th championship last season and are currently atop the ITA NCAA Division II rankings.
Brenau women's tennis dropped its first four matches this season. The Tigers last competed on Friday in a 7-0 loss to NCAA Division I Tennessee-Chattanooga.
The Southeastern Challenge runs from Thursday to Saturday in Savannah, Ga.
