The match then moved to singles where Wake Forest picked up the three singles wins to lock up the match.
Samantha Asch defeated Favero 6-0, 6-1 to take the match lead out to two points. Carter then defeated Virginia’s Bleser 6-2, 6-3 to push the lead to three points before No. 33 Guerin of Wake Forest defeated Mercer by a score of 6-2, 6-2 to close the match.
