With several of North Carolina's fall sports teams adding spring seasons to their 2020-2021 schedules, The Daily Tar Heel will be recapping some of the action from this spring's busy weekends in roundups every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Women's tennis: UNC 4, Virginia Tech 1 (Friday)
The No. 1 North Carolina women’s tennis team (18-0, 8-0 ACC) hit the road to take on Virginia Tech (4-12, 0-9 ACC) at the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center on a rainy Saturday afternoon.

On court one, third-ranked doubles team, Sara Daavettila and Cameron Morra followed suit and won by a score of 6-1 to clinch the doubles point.
First-year No. 114 Reilly Tran quickly defeated her opponent on court 6 in straight set victories, 6-0, 6-1, followed by first-year No. 51 Fiona Crawley, who won 6-2, 6-0 on Court 4. Junior No. 28 Cameron Morra earned the last singles point for the Tar Heels, 6-3, 6-3 on court one to secure the 4-1 match victory.
The Tar Heels will return to the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center in Chapel Hill on Sunday for their upcoming match against Notre Dame.
