MTEN: No. 19 Wolfpack Wins Pair Over Appalachian St. & Winthrop

Posted March 7

The No. 19 NC State men’s tennis team returned to the court on Friday after a 12-day hiatus, sweeping a pair of matches over Appalachian State and Winthrop from the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center.

“Our guys looked hungry today and they did a really nice job of taking care of business,” said head coach Jon Choboy. “We really looked sharp and were mentally consistent. The guys did what they had to do today in beating two good opponents.”

The Wolfpack defeated the Mountaineers 7-0 in the first match of the day, then followed that up with a 4-0 win over the Eagles of Winthrop. With the two wins, NC State closes out its non-conference slate at 11-2, as it opens Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) play this Sunday, March 9 against No. 10 Duke. First serve is scheduled for 3 p.m.

“I think our schedule up to this point in the season has prepared us for the level of competition in our conference,” Choboy said. “I think we’re as ready as we can be at this point in time, but we just need to go out there and do what we’ve done up to this point in the season.

No. 19 NC State: 7, Appalachian State: 0
The Wolfpack won a 7-0 decision over the Mountaineers to kick things off in the first match of the day.
Simon Norenius and Parker McGuiness, playing together at No. 3 doubles captured the first match of the day for the Wolfpack with a 8-1 victory against Steve Lake and Jan-Willem Kleynhans. Thomas Weigel and Nick Horton followed shortly with an 8-4 win over Zach Bost and Sebastien King at the No. 1 doubles slot, to clinch the doubles point for the Pack.

Beck Bond and Austin Powell then wrapped up a hard-fought 8-7 (1) win over Daniel Hoang and Oliver Casey at the No. 2 doubles position.

In singles play, freshman Ian Dempster defeated Hoang 6-1, 6-2 on court three to put the Pack up 2-0, while Sean Weber, playing in the No. 1 spot for the first time this year, took his match 6-2, 6-4 over King to push the advantage to 3-0.
