NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt women’s tennis team will hit the courts Saturday at the Vanderbilt Currey Tennis Center to compete against No. 3-ranked North Carolina.

The Dores face an undefeated 5-0 Tarheel team featuring four ranked singles players, No. 2 Makenna Jones, No. 4 Sara Daavettila, No. 18 Aleka Graham and No. 21 Cameron Morra.
