GC Men’s and Women’s Tennis Suffer First Conference Losses at Methodist

The Pride men’s and women’s tennis teams were swept on the road by Methodist on Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday’s setbacks were the first conference defeats for both teams.

The men featured a tight match at number one doubles, with Zachary Passman and Kyle Gatti dropping a hard fought 8-6 decision to Dillon Sullivan and Lawrence Salman. In number five singles play, Matt Moscatello pushed Sullivan in the second set before falling 6-0, 7-5. Matthew Miller also hung tough at one singles, dropping a 6-1, 6-4 final to Duncan Miller.

Meredith Kelly was the lone player on the women’s side to win a game, but came up short in the end at one singles to Katherine Meindl.

The men are now 3-4 on the year and 2-1 in the USA South, while the women fall to 3-3 overall and 3-1 in the conference. The women will return to the courts on Saturday William Peace, with the guys getting back to action on March 29 at home against LaGrange.
