WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The North Carolina duo of Esben Hess-Olesen and Brett Clark, ranked 45th nationally, claimed victory in the final of the A doubles draw at the Wake Forest Tennis Center on Sunday.

The doubles team from Carolina edged Liberty's Jorge Azuero and Shea Thomas 8-6 to finish off a dominant run in Winston-Salem.

Also in the A doubles flight, Nelson Vick and Stuart DePaolo defeated Furman's Alex Christ and Matt Browne 8-3 to finish in seventh place.

In singles action, Brett Clark won his first collegiate singles title with a 6-3, 6-3 victory over teammate Nelson Vick on Monday.

Other Carolina players slated to compete in singles matches on Sunday were not able to play due to weather conditions.

"Congratulations to them [Clark and Hess-Olesen], they played well this weekend," said head coach Sam Paul. "We just have to keep getting better and we're looking forward to the ITA Carolina Regional."

The ITA Carolina Regional will begin on October 17th in Cary, N.C.
