RALEIGH, N.C. - The nationally-ranked Maryland women's tennis struggled in its Atlantic Coast Conference match with No. 45 North Carolina State Saturday, falling to the Wolfpack, 7-0, at the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Center.

The Terps (7-9, 1-5), who entered the weekend tied for 75th in the nation, were unable to get untracked, losing the double point before falling in each of the singles matches. The Wolfpack (11-6, 2-4) won for the second-straight time in conference action.

Daria Petrovic combined with Alejandra Guerra to defeat the Terps' Marianne Baker and Eleanor Peters, 8-4, at the No. 1 position, clinching the doubles point.

Petrovic, ranked No. 86 in the nation, handed Baker, the 88th-ranked player in the country, a straight-set loss (6-3, 6-1) at No. 1 singles.

That victory, coupled with Kate Green's 6-1, 6-0 win over Maryland's Brooke Rogers at No. 5 singles gave the Wolfpack a commanding 3-0 lead.

Guerra clinched the match with a 6-3, 6-2 victory over sophomore Michal Amir at No. 3 singles.

Peters, ranked No. 101 nationally, was the lone bright spot for the Terps, sending her match with Berkeley Brock into a third-set tiebreaker. Peters won the first set 7-6 (8-6) before Brock rallied for a 6-3 win in the second set and dispatched of Peters in a tiebreaker, 10-7.

In the other two singles matches, NC State took advantage of the Terps youth. Julia Roach defeated freshman Elyse Steiner 6-2, 6-4 at the No. 4 position, and Neils Barringer downed freshman Lisa Miller 6-0, 6-2 at No. 6.

The Terps look to get back on the winning track Sunday when they head to Winston-Salem, N.C., to face Wake Forest. The No. 17 Demon Deacons and Terps will hit the hard court at noon.
