No. 1 Tar Heels Take Care Of Wake Forest, 5-2
No. 1 North Carolina ran its conference record to 4-0 with a 5-2 win over No. 43 Wake Forest Wednesday afternoon at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center. After sweeping the doubles point, Carolina got singles victories from Sophie Grabinski, Gina Suarez-Malaguti, Shinann Featherston and Zoe De Bruycker to hold off the Demon Deacons.

UNC (17-3) shuffled its doubles lineup with no negative effect, as the Tar Heels took all three matches in convincing fashion. Grabinski and Jelena Durisic opened play with an 8-1 victory at No. 3 just minutes before Sanaz Marand and Suarez-Malaguti finished off an 8-2 win at No. 2. The No. 27 tandem of Katrina Tsang and Featherston then topped Emilee Malvehy and Aileen Davis at the top position, 8-5, to complete the sweep.

With Tsang a late scratch in singles, Carolina was forced to move players up a court. But once again it was the depth of the Tar Heel lineup that made the difference, with UNC scoring wins at positions three through six.
