Seniors' home careers end strong

One of the finest tenures in the history of North Carolina men's tennis came to an end Sunday after the Tar Heels' 7-0 win against Clemson.

But Benjamin Carlotti, with the help of fellow senior Gullan, insisted that the similarities end there. "Right before we all went on the courts I went and talked to the guys," he said.

Senior Jeff Schroeder does not have the match experience of many sophomores. In fact, Intercollegiate Tennis Association Mideast Region rookie of the year Stefan Hardy appeared in more than twice as many matches last year as Schroeder did as a sophomore in 2005-06. But the senior walk-on from Raleigh is still viewed as a veteran by his teammates. "We all look to him," said fellow senior Sandeep Daiya. "When he works hard, we all work harder."
