Team looks to get momentum going again against N.C. State
Observer Sports Staff | Thursday, March 23, 2017
The Irish will play host in a matchup with North Carolina State on Friday, just after having their eleven-game win streak snapped by Virginia, and now sit at 14-2, with a 5-1 record in the ACC.
Singles play will likely continue to be a strong point for Notre Dame (14-2, 5-1 ACC), as senior Monica Robinson and junior Brooke Broda each came away with singles victories against the Cavaliers.
Notre Dame struggled in doubles against Virginia, losing both of the matches that finished. In the match before the streak-snapping loss, Notre Dame won all three of its doubles matches against William & Mary.
N.C. State (12-7, 1-5 ACC) will bring a talented roster into South Bend to take on the Irish. Wolfpack senior Martina Frantova and freshman Anna Rogers are the nation’s 30th-ranked doubles pair coming off a dominating win in their most recent match against Boston College. N.C. State sophomore Bianca Moldovan, meanwhile, blanked her most recent opponent 6-0, 6-0 in singles.
The matchup between the two ACC foes will begin at 4 p.m. at Courtney Tennis Center Friday. The Irish face a quick turnaround, hosting Miami on Sunday.
