CARY, North Carolina - Two doubles teams from UNCW remain alive heading into the final day of the USTA/ITA Carolina Regional Men's Tennis Championships at the Cary Tennis Park.

In doubles, the teams of Kosta Blank-Chris Cooprider and Sam Williams-Rafael Aita won two matches apiece. Blank and Cooprider downed Daniel Krehman and Adam Lee of Wake Forest, 8-3, and cruised past South Carolina State's Tomas Binzon and Anton Protzenko, 8-1. Williams and Aita trimmed Jiimmy Dougherty and Randy Phillips of UNC Greensboro, 8-4, and slipped past Duke's Michael Redicki and Jason Tahir, 9-8 (4).

Pedro Mol and Zach Hublitz won their first match early Saturday, defeating East Carolina's Jordan Vliegen and Nicholas Soriano, 9-7, but lost to UNC Chapel Hill's Esben Hess and Nelson Vick, 8-5.

Overall, the Seahawks went 0-1 in singles and 5-1 in doubles on the day.
