Women's Tennis Team Gives Strong Showing versus Catawba, Despite Absence of 3 Starters

The odds were certainly stacked against the Lees-McRae Women's Tennis Team this past Friday when they took on Catawba College. Due to recent injuries, the team played with only 3 of their 6 starters. Despite this disadvantage, the Lady Bobcats still played extremely hard against the polished game of Catawba. However, the valiant underdog efforts of the Lady Bobcats weren't enough to sustain a victory in either the singles or doubles match-ups. Catawba College walked away as winners on all courts after playing exceptionally well against Lees-McRae.
