The North Carolina men’s tennis team was back in action competing in the UNC Charlotte Invitational this weekend.
Despite it being the team’s third event this month, UNC had three competing in the event: junior Blaine Boyden, sophomore Simon Soendergaard and sophomore Laad Harrison.
Soendergaard, who had the most impressive tournament for the Tar Heels, won three matches in the A1 singles, earning a berth in the finals, before losing to UNC-Greensboro’s Connor Thompson 6-0, 6-2.
Soendergaard won each of his three matches en route to the final in straight sets and only surrendered four games in a set once during that run. Notably, he defeated No. 3 seed Scott Jones 6-4, 6-2.
Harrison also showcased an impressive tournament in the B2 singles, only dropping one match the entire weekend. He fell in a three-set thriller, which had two tiebreakers, to No. 2 seed Matthew Fernandez, who came away with the victory 6-7(6), 6-2, 7-6 (7).
