“I think we validated that for sure,” Schneider said Sunday. “It’s pretty clear that we can be a force when we have everyone out there, and we’ve been able to solidify our doubles game, and our singles guys have looked good with everybody playing where they’re comfortable.”
The weekend road trip was business as usual for the 15th-ranked Tar Heels (19-9, 8-4 ACC) as they closed out the regular season with a 5-2 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (12-11, 4-8 ACC) Friday and a 4-3 win over the No. 72 Clemson Tigers (11-15, 2-10 ACC) on Sunday.
With its two wins this weekend, UNC enters the ACC Tournament as the No. 4 seed and will face Boston College on Thursday.
“It was a very good effort,” said junior Brett Clark, who won both of his singles matches this weekend. “Road wins are always tough to come by in the ACC, but we had some guys step up, and we closed out the season the right way. And have a lot of confidence going into the postseason.”
