The North Carolina men’s tennis team travels well.
The No. 9 Tar Heels took down two top-ranked ACC opponents in Florida over the weekend to obtain a 20-3 record, 7-1 in the ACC.
UNC won both matches 5-2 in hard-fought battles — Friday’s match versus No. 30 Florida State lasted more than four hours, and Sunday’s match against No. 47 Miami was a come-from-behind learning experience, coach Sam Paul said.
“We have a deep team, a strong team. It was impressive today. We lost four first sets, and then we ended up battling back and got three of those matches back,” Paul said. “The guys are fighters, they really fought hard, and I’m proud of them for that.”
One of the crucial players for the Tar Heels was freshman Jack Murray, who clinched both weekend victories, a first for the young player.
