— 10th-ranked Duke pulled a 4-2 upset of No. 3 North Carolina on Saturday at the ITA Women's Team Indoor Championship at the Boar's Head Sports Club.

A couple of firsts this season led to the Tar Heels coming up short against the Blue Devils in the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Second-seed North Carolina (5-2) lost the doubles point for the first time this season to fall behind 1-0 to seventh-seeded Duke.

Then later in singles, No. 2 Jamie Loeb lost for the first time since Sept. 15 and for just the second time all year, 6-4, 6-4, to third-ranked Beatrice Capra.

Carolina managed to tie the match 1-1 as No. 5 Hayley Carter breezed to a 6-2, 6-2, victory at second singles over Duke's Chalena Scholl.

At fourth singles, Caroline Price earned a three-set victory over #45 Ester Goldfeld to cut the Tar Heel deficit to 3-2, however, #49 Hanna Mar of Duke downed Carolina's Whitney Kay in the third singles match, 2-6, 6-4, 10-5, to clinch the victory for the Blue Devils.

Carolina returns to action on Wednesday, Feb. 19 when it hosts Norfolk State at 2 p.m., and East Carolina later than night at 6:30 p.m., at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
