CHARLOTTE, N.C. –
Charlotte will look to improve upon its 6-1 record at the Halton-Wagner Tennis Complex when the 49ers’ women’s tennis team plays host to North Carolina Central at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
“We’re looking forward to a great match against North Carolina Central tomorrow,” head coach Michaela Gorman
Charlotte is 6-11 overall this spring but is coming off a 6-1 victory over Davidson Friday in which it won the doubles point and then five of the six singles matches to roll to the triumph over the cross-county foe.
Juniors Lisa Grosselius
and Natsuko Takayanagi
lead the squad with nine singles wins apiece, one more than freshman Macy Vonderschmidt
. Vonderschmidt’s eight victories have all come in dual matches, pacing the team this spring.
The rookie, who was tabbed the March 25 Conference USA Athlete of the Week, is also a part of the top-two doubles pairings. She has tallied three triumphs with sophomore Jessica Pérez
and added two more with classmate Victoria Pahlett
North Carolina Central brings a 4-11 record into the match, having dropped a 6-1 decision at East Carolina Saturday in its most recent outing. The Lady Eagles were slated to face North Carolina A&T Monday but inclement weather postponed the contest until later this week.
Aissa Muamba leads head coach David Nass’ squad with eight singles victories, all at the No. 2 position. She has also contributed five doubles triumphs with Mia Ramic to set the pace this spring.
Wednesday’s contest will mark the fourth-straight season in which the two teams have met with the 49ers earning wins each time, including a slim 4-3 triumph last spring. All matches between the two programs have been played in the Queen City.
