“Today was another fantastic college tennis match,” said head coach Patrick Fediuk. “Charlotte plays the right way, and coach Jeremy Feldman does such a great job with that program in all aspects. I thought we made them earn it on every court. That’s all I can ask of my guys. I’m proud of them and PC should be as well as they represent the school with such class. This will make us ever hungrier when we get back to work on Monday!”
The 49ers took the early match lead with wins on courts one and two to take the doubles point. Will Baird and Daniel Stenger took court three, 6-2, but Charlotte recorded 6-3 and 6-4 wins on courts one and two, respectively, to go up 1-0.
