DSC takes easy wins in tennis

Dalton State College’s tennis teams dominated men’s and women’s competition with Point University on Thursday at Lakeshore Park in Dalton.

The men won 8-1, while the women won 9-0 against the teams from West Point, which is on the Georgia-Alabama border, south of LaGrange.

In the men’s match, Dalton State (10-3) got singles wins from No. 1 Nikolay Nikiforov, 7-5, 2-6, 6-2, No. 2 Adam Hornby, 6-0, 6-1, No. 3 Lucas Souza, 6-0, 6-1, No. 5 Juan Arguello, 6-2, 6-4, and No. 6 Haydn Fava, 6-1, 6-0. The Roadrunners swept doubles with wins from No. 1 Hornby and Nikiforov, 8-2 in pro-set play, No. 2 Arguello and Souza, 8-6, and No. 3 David Drahiceanu and Fava, 8-6.

“I particularly liked the way the guys played today,” Dalton State coach Zach Rogers said. “We had 13 days off since our last (men’s) match. That’s not a particularly good thing in tennis.”

In the women’s match, Dalton State (8-3) got singles wins from No. 1 Laura Winter, 6-1, 6-0, No. 2 Daniella Sanchez, 6-0, 6-1, No. 3 Chelsea Powell, 6-0, 6-0, No. 4 Diana Narino, 6-1, 6-0, No. 5 Alejandra Bejareno, 6-0, 6-0, and No. 6 Lindsay McCutchen, 6-1, 6-0. Doubles wins came from No. 1 Powell and Winter, 8-0, No. 2 Narino and Sanchez, 8-0, and No. 3 Bejareno and McCutchen, 8-2.

Point University’s women dropped to 1-13 with the loss.

Dalton State was scheduled to host Savannah College of Art and Design-Atlanta today, but that match has been postponed.
