The North Carolina men’s tennis team relaxed and focused on its seniors on the way to a 7-0 sweep of Boston College (5-15, 0-10 ACC) Sunday.
But for senior co-captains William Parker and Taylor Meyer, their Senior Day singles victories in Chapel Hill didn’t diminish the importance of their final match at UNC’s Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
Shortly after the No. 59 Tar Heels swept the Eagles in doubles matches, Parker found himself losing 3-1 in the first set of his match. As Meyer and the rest of the Tar Heels established big leads against their opponents, Parker fought back and earned the final point of his career on UNC’s home court, giving up just one more game the rest of the match.
The Tar Heels didn’t drop a set all day.
“I’m just happy that both of them got a win,” coach Sam Paul said about the two seniors. “They gave us a lot of tremendous moments on these courts.
