CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - The North Carolina men's tennis team is set to compete in the 2013 ITA Carolina Regional, which kicks off Thursday at Cary Tennis Park in Cary, N.C. The Tar Heels will be represented by 11 players, including four seeded singles players and three seeded doubles teams.

The tournament, which runs through Monday, Oct. 21, will feature players from the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. The singles and doubles regional champions will move on to the USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships, Nov. 7-10, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, N.Y.

North Carolina will have nine representatives in singles play. Senior Nelson Vick, ranked 92nd nationally, received the No. 10 seed and will face Appalachian State's Zack Bost in the opening round.

Other seeded Tar Heels include freshman Ronnie Schneider (11), sophomore Brett Clark (14) and junior Oystein Steiro (17-24).

In doubles, the Tar Heels will be represented by five teams. The group is headlined by the 45th-ranked tandem of Brett Clark and Esben Hess-Olesen, who received the No. 7 seed and a first round bye.

The pair Oystein Steiro and Nelson Vick received the No. 12 seed and will take on Charleston in the first round. The 16th-seeded duo of James Coxe and Ronnie Schneider rounds out Carolina's seeded doubles teams. They will face UNC-Wilmington in the opening round.
