CHAPEL HILL – The defending national champion UNC women’s soccer team is set to begin the Carolina Nike Classic this weekend in Chapel Hill.

Hosted by the Tar Heels, the event should be a great way for local fans to get out and appreciate Head Coach Anson Dorrance’s undefeated team in action.

Senior Crystal Dunn was named Co-ACC Player of the Week with Virginia’s Morgan Brian. The pair had standout performances at last weekend’s Klockner Classic to earn the conference honor, including three goals by the Tar Heel senior.

As far as this weekend goes, UNC will play its first game Friday at 5:00 p.m. against New Mexico. The Tar Heels will wrap up the weekend’s play Sunday at 3:00 p.m. with a match against Kennesaw State.

Two games into the season, Carolina has not been scored on while tallying six goals.
