CHAPEL HILL - Seventh seed North Carolina won 4-0 over VCU in the first round of the NCAA Women's Tennis Championship on Friday afternoon from Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.

North Carolina (25-5) took the opening doubles point for a 1-0 advantage over the Rams. No. 13 Whitney Kay and Caroline Price won 8-3 on court one, before Tessa Lyons and Kate Vialle sealed the point with an identical 8-3 won on court three.

Fifth-ranked Hayley Carter wasted no time in giving her Tar Heel club a 2-0 lead with a 6-0, 6-0 win on court two singles over Daria Yakauleva.

No. 59 Caroline Price was next to finish on court three, winning 7-5, 6-1 to make it 3-0 in favor of the Tar Heels.
