This weekend at Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center, the Tar Heels served both of those teams
6-1 losses, improving their record to 12-5 overall and 3-2 in the ACC.
Playing under a hot sun, No. 14 North Carolina's intensity proved too much for the Cavaliers and the Terrapins.
UNC more than earned the doubles point Sunday, winning all three doubles matches against Maryland.
Playing at the No. 2 seed doubles, Tar Heel sophomore Marlene Mejia and freshman Julie Rotondi defeated Maryland's Pam Floro and Olivia Duboukov with relative ease. Floro and Duboukov lacked accuracy in their serves and swatted more balls into the net than anywhere else.
The Terrapins seemed beat down in singles play, moving slowly and giving up on many balls, but the Tar Heels played as fiercely as ever.
"It was hot, and that took a toll on them," UNC coach Roland Thornqvist said. "But our kids did great."
Freshman Lee Bairos and senior Courtney Zalinski each won 6-2, 6-1 at the No. 5 and No. 6 seed singles.
Rotondi earned the clinching point for UNC at the second-seeded singles, defeating Floro by moving the ball around the court.
