RALEIGH – The No. 12 NC State women’s tennis team punched its ticket to the NCAA Championships Sweet 16 for the first time in school history Sunday afternoon, defeating No. 20 Tennessee 4-0.


The match was moved indoors a few games into singles play due to weather.
On court one, 10th-ranked Anna Rogers dug a hole in the first set and early into the second set. The All-American fought her way back into the match, taking the second and third sets to clinch the win for the Pack. The victory over No. 62 Hammond marks her 17th ranked singles win of the season.

No. 7 Rogers and Alana Smith captured the doubles point for the Pack, defeating No. 9 Sadie Hammond and Katilin Staines for their third top-10 doubles victory of the 2019 campaign.

NC State improves to 24-6 and Tennessee finishes the season 20-8.

NC State took the doubles point after tight matches on all three courts. In a 6-4 decision, Bianca Moldovan and Liz Norman defeated Ariadna Riley and Tenika McGiffin to give the Pack a boost as courts one and two battled.

Adriana Reami and Claudia Wiktorin fell to Johanna Silva and Rebeka Mertena, 6-4, as the attention turned to the top-10 matchup on court one.

On court one, seventh-ranked Rogers and Smith came out firing, taking the first three games. Tennessee’s ninth-ranked Sadie Hammond and Kaitlin Staines stormed back to make things interesting, trailing by just one game at 4-3. The Pack duo closed out the match at 6-4 to capture the doubles point for the squad.
In singles, Reami took the first point of the indoor session, defeating Mertena in straight sets, 6-2, 6-2. The win marked the Miami, Fla., native’s 30thof the season. She is the third player on the 2019 roster to accomplish the feat.

With an impressive run early in the NCAA Championships, Smith won in straight sets for the second match in a row, bringing her to a 32-12 record on the season.

Rogers closed the deal for the Pack on court one with a 1-6, 6-3, 6-2 victory over Hammond. The match-clinching victory became the fourth Wolfpack player to tally 30 singles wins over the course of the 2019 campaign.

NC State Men’s Tennis Dual-Match Campaign Comes to an End in NCAA Championships Second Round



KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – After advancing past the first round of the NCAA Championships for the first time since 2014, the 19th-ranked NC State men’s tennis team fell just short to Tennessee as the Volunteers won the second-round battle, 4-2, Saturday afternoon at the Goodfriend Tennis Center.

With the loss, the Wolfpack’s incredible dual-match campaign comes to a close. The Pack ends the 2019 season with a 19-11 record as it amassed the most single-season victories since the 2012 campaign when it picked up 20 wins on the year. After its second consecutive selection to the NCAA Championships, NC State advanced to the second round of the national tournament for just the fourth time in program history and the first time since 2014.

The NCAA Championships wrapped up a historic 2019 campaign for the Pack during which it finished the regular season with an 8-4 record in ACC play, marking the most league wins in a single season in program history. NC State also went on to make history as the program’s first-ever squad to advance to the ACC Championship semifinals.

The Volunteers picked up a pair of doubles wins to clinch the opening point. No. 6 Preston Touliatos and Timo Stodder go the first victory of the day for Tennessee with a 6-2 win over 44th-ranked Alexis Galarneau and Michael Ogden, and Adam Walton and Andrew Rogers’s 6-3 win over Tadas Babelis and Yannai Barkai gave the Volunteers the doubles point.

After dropping the first sets in five of six singles matches, the Wolfpack forced third sets on three of those courts.

Touliatos defeated Barkai 6-4, 6-2 in the only match to finish in straight sets to push Tennessee’s lead to 2-0.

Babelis put NC State on the board, defeating Scott Jones 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, and Robert Turzak tied the match score at two with his 2-6, 6-3, 6-1 win over Luca Wiedenmann. 

In a top-25 matchup on court one, No. 23 Stodder emerged victorious over 21st-ranked Galarneau. Stodder’s 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 win put the Volunteers a match away from the clinch.

After dropping their first sets, Georgiy Malyshev and Igor Saveljic sent their matches into tight third sets, but Tennessee clinched on court two as No. 50 Walton defeated Igor 6-3, 6-7 (4), 7-5 to send the Volunteers on to the next round. 

Galarneau will prepare for the NCAA Singles Championships, which will take place from May 20-25 at the USTA National Campus in Orlando, Fla. following the conclusion of the team championships.
