NC State’s Alexis Galarneau and Igor Saveljic Honored as All-ACC Performers

Published

on

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Senior Igor Saveljic and junior Alexis Galarneau of the No. 20 NC State men’s tennis team (18-10) earned recognition as All-ACC performers for the 2019 spring season, as announced by the league office on Thursday afternoon. Galarneau was named First Team All-ACC, and Saveljic was named to the Second Team All-ACC, as voted on by the conference’s head coaches.

The honors marked the third season in a row that Galarneau has been honored as a member of an All-ACC team and is his second season in a row claiming a spot on the First Team. Saveljic was named to the Second Team in his final collegiate season, the first All-ACC honors of his career. NC State has had multiple all-conference honorees for seven seasons in a row.

Galarneau becomes the fourth player in program history to garner All-ACC status at least three times in his career. The Laval, Canada native once again put together a tremendous season playing at the top singles spot for the Wolfpack. Galarneau went 15-8 in dual match play during the 2019 season, with seven of his wins coming against ranked opponents. He beat the nation’s No. 15 player on two occasions during his junior campaign, as his wins against Georgia’s Emil Reinberg and Carl Söderlund marked the highest ranked victories of his career.

Galarneau also continued to be an impact player for the Pack in doubles. His 14-5 record in doubles action marked the best doubles winning percentage across all of NC State’s usual doubles starters. Galarneau partnered with Michael Ogden for 11 of those 14 doubles wins, and the duo took down three ranked opponents on the season as a pair.

Saveljic’s first All-ACC honors come after the senior posted a team-best 18 singles wins on the year, with 13 of those coming during dual match play. The Podgorica, Montenegro native went 18-11 during fall and spring play, with most of his playing time coming at the No. 2 singles slot for the Pack.

Pairing with his brother for doubles action, Saveljic went 18-9 on the year and 13-6 in dual matches. He and Ivan posted an 8-1 record during regular-season ACC matches. The duo has won nine of its last 10 contests, including eight wins in a row to close out the regular season.

Igor Saveljic currently owns 70 career singles wins and 63 career doubles wins, both marks that rank in the top 12 in program history.

Galarneau and Saveljic are two of 27 men’s tennis players across the league who were honored as All-ACC performers for the 2018-19 season.

NC State Women’s Basketball Defensively Smothers Maine 62-34

Published

on

#14 NC State’s Women’s Basketball team improved to 4-0 yesterday, defeating Maine (1-3) 62-34.

It wasn’t the Wolfpack’s best shooting day, but fortunately, their defense was stifling, holding Maine to 24.6% shooting from the field and 34 points on the day.

Sophomore Elissa Cunane had a double-double for the 2nd consecutive game, with 12 points (4-8) and 10 rebounds. The double-double was the 6th of her career.

Freshman Forward Jada Boyd had a career-high 16 rebounds (team high), as well as 3 assists (team high), 3 blocks (team high) and 8 points (4-8).

Senior Guard Aislinn Konig shot 50% from three (3-6), which marks her best performance on the year. Considering the fact that “Ace” started the year in a shooting slump, this was extremely encouraging to see.

 

Redshirt Senior Grace Hunter was held out of this game after tweaking her knee a couple of days ago. They are hopeful she will be able to play against St. Mary’s on Sunday. Hunter is coming off of an ACL surgery, and had 15 points last game.

The Wolfpack will play their first road game of the season on Sunday at St. Mary’s at 5pm.
