In a remarkable comeback, the Charlotte 49ers men’s tennis team secured the ACC Championship title in Tulsa, Oklahoma, defeating top-seeded Memphis 4-3. This victory marks only the second time in program history that the title comes to Charlotte. Head Coach Kyle Bailey expressed immense pride in the team’s resilience, stating, “It feels unreal, honestly. I have never seen a team dig as deep as this. Playing four days in a row, always the last match, it’s really special.”
