UNC falls in NCAA quarterfinal
URBANA, Ill. — No. 2 North Carolina saw its NCAA run come to an end Sunday, as the Tar Heels fell to seventh-seeded UCLA 4-1 at the Atkins Tennis Center on the campus of the University of Illinois.
UNC ran out to an early lead thanks to a pair of dominant doubles wins before the Bruins rallied to take four singles matches.
For the second match in a row, UNC (28-4) played one of its best doubles points of the year to take a 1-0 lead. On court one, No. 58 Caroline Price and Whitney Kay traded breaks with No. 25 Robin Anderson and Skyler Morton before breaking at love to take a 5-3 lead. From there, the Tar Heel tandem took control, dropping just one more game on the way to an 8-4 win.
With Lauren McHale and Ashley Dai battling No. 38 Courtney Dolehide and Pamela Montez, Gina Suarez-Malaguti and Tessa Lyons were on the verge of victory on court three. The No. 3 UNC pair raced out to a 5-1 lead on the strength of two breaks and never looked back, winning 8-2 over Catherine Harrison and Kyle McPhillips to clinch the point for the Tar Heels.
