The North Carolina softball team continued to find its form on Sunday, sweeping a doubleheader against Fairfield and Georgetown to close out the Carolina Classic at Anderson Softball Stadium.
The Tar Heels’ two wins — by scores of 6-4 and 8-0, respectively — gave UNC (8-6) a 4-0 record for the weekend, the first weekend the team finished with a winning record.
In the day’s first game, Fairfield (0-4) took an early lead with two runs in the top of the first inning, but the Tar Heels fought back with runs in each of the first three innings to establish a 4-2 lead.
Sophomore Sydney Matzko held the Stags in check for two quick innings, but Fairfield's two-out, two-run double in the fourth inning evened the score at 4-4. Matzko was then replaced by Kendra Lynch, who drilled a solo home run over the right-center field wall to give UNC a lead it would not relinquish.
Against Georgetown, Lynch rode her momentum to another dominant performance.
