Juniors Marie-Alexandre Leduc and Fernanda Navarro and senior Daniela Ruiz each won both of their singles matches against the Wolfpack and the Irish.

  • Leduc and Navarro are ranked 44th nationally in doubles. The pair is 18-5 overall, 10-2 in dual matches and 5-0 in ACC dual matches, and has currently won eight matches in a row.
  • Clemson has won the doubles point in 12 of its 19 matches on the season. The Tigers have an 8-4 record in matches in which they win the doubles point, and a 2-5 mark in matches in which they lose the doubles point.
  • Navarro was named ACC Player of the Week on Feb. 20, for her performances the week of Feb. 12-18. She was undefeated in singles and doubles play in two matches, and she clinched the Tigers’ 4-3 upset over 11th-ranked Wake Forest on Feb. 18.
  • Ruiz was named a recipient of the ACC’s Weaver-James-Corrigan Postgraduate Scholarship as announced by the conference office on Feb. 28.
