Last Time Out: 

A week ago, the team snipped previously ranked No. 2 Ohio State is a nail biting 4-3 finish. Doubles wins came from Nell Miller and Amelia Rajecki on court two and Diana Shnaider and Alana Smith on court one from a tiebreaker set.

In singles, Rajecki, Shnaider, and Smith fought for their points on courts one, two, and three to clinch the win for the program. Shnaider’s match on court one came down to the decision but she prevailed after pushing past a tiebreak set to snag the win.

Rankings Update:

NC State women’s tennis earned its way back into the top five after defeating previously ranked No. 2 Ohio State, earning their new ranking of No. 4.
