Nicholas Meale came from behind to post a win at No. 5 singles for the Susquehanna University Men's Tennis team Tuesday but the River Hawks dropped a 6-1 decision to Millikin University in the second match of the Spring Training trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina.

Meale lost his first set 6-1 but battled back to win a 6-3 second set and then closed out the match with an 11-9 win in the tiebreaker for the lone Susquehanna (6-2) win.

Alexander Dove dropped a close match at No. 2 singles for the River Hawks. Dove fell 6-3 in the first set but bounced back for a 6-3 win in the second set before falling 10-6 in the tie breaker.

Due to adverse weather conditions the match was played with a first team to six format and only one of the three doubles matches was completed.

The River Hawks close out the trip to South Carolina Thursday with an 11:30 a.m. match against Shepherd University.
