Miami had a big weekend as it extended a long winning streak against two ACC opponents.
The No. 13 Hurricanes first took down Syracuse 7-0 at home on Friday, and then traveled to Winston-Salem, N.C., to face Wake Forest on Sunday. Miami won that battle easily, 6-1.
The women’s team improved to 14-2 overall, with a perfect 8-0 conference record. They will carry their 10-match winning streak into an April 5 matchup with North Carolina.
The Canes played arguably their best match of the season and earned a hard win over No. 18 Wake Forest on Saturday.
“I am so proud of the guys,” coach Mario Rincon said. ”They have worked so hard for this in practice and in their conditioning.”
Of note: Gabriel Flores cruised past Adam Lee 6-1, 6-0 and Omar Aly took care of No. 20 Romain Bogaerts 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) to secure the victory.
Track and field
Miami turned in a strong performance at the Hurricane Invitational, the first of three track and field meets at home this season.
The Canes notched 11 wins on the second day of competition.
“It was a very good start for us,” coach Amy Deem said. “We’re still training through these meets, but I thought the effort was there.”
