WOMEN'S TENNIS: No. 3 North Carolina 6, Florida State 1

No. 3 UNC women's tennis downs Florida State 6-1 to remain undefeated in ACC

The No. 3 North Carolina women’s tennis team (18-1, 5-0 ACC) continued its unblemished conference play with a 6-1 victory over Florida State (8-8, 1-5 ACC).

What happened?

The Tar Heels had a quick start, pushing UNC ahead of Florida State by winning two out of the three doubles matches, the third remaining unfinished with UNC in the lead. Senior Hayley Carter and sophomore Jessie Aney, the No. 1 doubles team, won 6-3, mimicking junior Cassandra Vazquez and first-year Alexa Graham’s 6-3 victory.

UNC won five out of the six singles matches with two going into a third match. Sophomore Chloe Ouellet-Pizer won her singles during the third match 10-3 while No. 4 first-year Sara Daavettila lost during the third 10-8.

Who stood out?

No. 2 Carter extended her winning singles record to 154 while maintaining a perfect league record 5-0. And First-year Makenna Jones was the only Tar Heel to post a clean sweep during her singles match.

When was it decided?

Aney’s singles match was the deciding factor for the Tar Heels. Her win (6-3, 6-1) made a victory unattainable for the Seminoles.

Why does it matter?

UNC has gone on a 10-game winning streak, five of those being away, since its loss to Florida in the ITA National Team Indoor Championship. They have five players with perfect ACC records for this season, going 5-0.

Where do they play next?

The Tar Heels will play Virginia Tech at home Friday at 3 p.m.
