UNCG sits at 9-5 for the season and 3-1 in Southern Conference play. The Spartans are coming off a 1-1 conference weekend after falling to Furman (L, 4-3) on Saturday but defeating Wofford 4-3 on Sunday. UNCG trailed 2-0 early in the match, but came all the way back to earn the victory.

Cameron Smith (Jamestown, N.C./Ragsdale) secured the win for the Spartans over the Terriers with a 7-6 (7-5), 6-1 win over Parks Thompson at No. 6 singles.
