It almost happened a week ago, when the North Carolina men’s tennis team was scheduled to battle Virginia Tech — but Brayden Schnur was a late scratch. This time, Coach Sam Paul kept Schnur in the lineup and on the court.
“I think this is exactly what the doctor ordered,” said sophomore Ronnie Schneider. “It was really nice to see Brayden back on the court.”
After not playing since Feb. 28 due to a lower body injury, the No. 12 sophomore returned to the court and looked as dominant as ever in his 6-2, 6-0 victory over Boston College’s Philip Nelson.
“It felt pretty good to get back out there,” Schnur said. “I’ve been practicing for the past two weeks, and I was hoping to get back on the court last week, but coach said it was a bit too early. But I’m happy to be playing again.”
Schnur’s teammates followed his lead as the No. 19 Tar Heels (16-8, 5-3 ACC) cruised to a 7-0 win over Boston College (7-13, 0-8 ACC).
