Deacons Head South to Face ACC Sunshine State Foes
April 4, 2008
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Ninth-ranked Florida State and No. 27 Miami will host the No. 28 Wake Forest men's tennis team this weekend to kickoff a four-match road stretch for the Demon Deacons.
Conference wins last week over Georgia Tech, Duke and Clemson set the Deacon season record at 15-6, 6-1 heading into this weekend's matchups. Sophomore Jason Morgenstern leads the team with seven-match win streak in singles, while Cory Parr and Steven Forman continue to climb the ITA doubles rankings, advancing from No. 14 to No. 11 in the most recent poll. The WFU tandem is 5-1 in the ACC and 13-5 in 2008.
Last weekend, Florida State (14-4, 5-2) split matches on the road, defeating Virginia Tech 4-3 and falling to top-ranked Virginia 6-1. FSU'S Sam Chang landed the only Seminole singles win against the Cavaliers, taking a 7-6, 6-4 upset over fifth-ranked Dominic Inglot.
The Hurricanes (9-6, 2-4) will look to snap their current four-match losing streak in competition this weekend. On Friday the `Canes will host NC State and follow up with Wake Forest on Sunday.
On April 11 and 13, Wake Forest will finish out the regular season on the road with No. 32 Virginia Tech and No. 1 Virginia.
