North Carolina tennis tried to bring the ruckus into Columbus, and in a series of events that won't shock anybody who has paid attention to the men's tennis team's ascension, the Tarheels got tagged with a 4-1 loss.
Here's head coach Ty Tucker on the triumph: “The nice thing about tonight is that we weren’t able to finish at Nos. 1 and 2 singles, but we were still able to get the win against a tough North Carolina team. We had a great crowd tonight and I thought the people that were able to come out saw a high-quality tennis match. It’s a great win, but we have to get ready for an undefeated Penn State team on Sunday.”
Worthington product and Redshirt junior Kevin Metka clinched the doubles point and the overall match for Ohio State. The Buckeyes (16-0, 1-0 B1G) have now won 182-consecutive home matches - just two wins shy of the NCAA Division I record (Stanford women’s tennis – 184 wins).
