— No. 3 North Carolina won a thrilling 4-3 match over No. 4 Georgia on Sunday in the consolation round of the ITA Women's Team Indoor Championship.

#2 Jamie Loeb defeated #4 Lauren Herring at No. 1 singles to decide the match in a third-set tie breaker, capping an incredibly tight match that featured five of the six singles matches going to a breaker in the third set.

North Carolina (6-2) won the doubles point fairly comfortable with a pair of 6-2 wins to take a 1-0 lead.

Katie Vialle at No. 6 singles put Carolina up 2-0 as she won in come-from-behind fashion, 0-6, 6-4, 11-9.

Georgia wasted little time in evening the match at 2-2 with wins at third and fourth singles. #5 Hayley Carter swung the momentum back in favor of the Tar Heels with a 6-2, 5-7, 10-4, victory at No. 2 singles.

The Bulldogs later tied the match at 3-3 with a win at No. 5 singles, setting up an epic finish between two of the top four ranked players in the nation. Loeb ultimately prevailed, 6-3, 3-6, 10-6, over Herring to cap a week that say Carolina face four teams ranked in the top 10.

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.
