RALEIGH, N.C. – The Clemson women’s tennis team suffered a 6-1 loss to 11th-ranked NC State on Friday afternoon at the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center in Raleigh, N.C. The contest against the No. 11 Wolfpack was the Tigers’ fifth against a top-20 opponent in their last 10 matches. With the loss, Clemson fell to 6-9 (2-5 ACC), while NC State improved to 13-3 (5-1 ACC) with the win.

The Wolfpack, with three top-125-ranked singles players, proved to be too much for the Tigers to handle, as they won the doubles point and five of the six singles matches. The lone win of the day for Clemson came from Ally Miller-Krasilnikov. The senior from Delray Beach, Fla. defeated Liz Norman, 6-4, 1-6, 1-0(5), at No. 4 singles to put the Tigers on the board and record her second singles win in a row.

The road only gets more difficult for the Tigers, who will make the short trip from Raleigh to Chapel Hill where they will face the nation’s number-one team, North Carolina, on Sunday, March 10. The contest between the Tigers and Tar Heels is scheduled for 1 p.m. at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.
