Clemson Head Coach Nancy Harris “I’m so happy for our team to get this win. Our goal was to never let them get going. To get the doubles point was phenomenal because, in my opinion, North Carolina has the best doubles in the country. Every player on the team stepped up today for us.”

“When you play a team at this level, you don’t always have the luxury of knowing your opponent, but in this case we were very familiar with them. We were able to really prepare for our opponents and that was a big factor.”

Clemson player Laurianne Henry

“This win was huge for us because our last meeting with them, at ACCs, was a bit of a shock to us. I think we were more patient today. Our mentality was to fight for every point. I feel like beating this team is really good preparation for nationals.”

On clinching “I didn’t really know until the last two games when I finally looked at the score. I was in the same position last year and the pressure felt exactly the same, so I was prepared.”

North Carolina Head Coach Brian Kalbas

“Congratulations to Clemson. They played an amazing match today. They are a very talented team and played great. They never gave us a chance to get any momentum and I wish them luck the rest of the way.”
