Jamie Loeb and Caroline Price led the No. 3 North Carolina women's tennis team to victories over Minnesota and Louisiana State this weekend — but only after learning from their loss on Saturday first.
“I think we came out a little nervous," Loeb said. "We haven’t had a lot of experience playing together, so the more we play, the better we will know our tendencies.”
Loeb and Price played in the second doubles position on Saturday and suffered the team's only loss to Paula Rincon-Otero and Julia Courter 6-2. This is abnormal for the star sophomore Loeb and senior Price, who are two of the best players on the team.
“The other girls in doubles under pressure stepped up really well,” Price said.
UNC's other two doubles teams won their matches to take the doubles point against Minnesota, but Loeb and Price would not let this comfort them as they looked forward to their match against LSU Sunday.
