After playing Wofford, the Chanticleeers defeated N.C. A&T 7-0. The Aggies dropped to 0-5 on the season.

“It is difficult to put into words the progress I see on the team,” said N.C. A&T coach William Crutchfield. “The good thing is that we are getting better together as a team. We are getting stronger and playing a better brand of tennis. I like our MEAC chances this year.”

There were hard-fought singles matches played at No. 3, 4 and 5 positions by sophomore Renata Ruiz, junior Angelica Martinez and senior Nadia Hilton-Adams. Each Aggie lost their respective first sets 6-4 with Martinez having the most competitive second set. Martinez lost to Jessie Mount 6-3 in an intense contest.
