GREENSBORO, NC – Erica Zabkar and Valerie Behr earned singles wins, but Charlotte won the other four singles matches and all three doubles pro-sets to record a 5-2 win over UNC Greensboro in women’s tennis action Thursday afternoon.
At No. 2 singles, Zabkar defeated Kathy Robey by identical 7-5 scores. Behr needed a third set to top Yana Stoeva, 6-1, 3-6, 1-0, including a 10-8 score in the tie-breaker.
