Three Tar Heel tennis players have been selected to play in the inaugural Oracle/ITA Masters tournament, set for Sept. 18-20 at the Malibu, Calif. Racquet Club. Hayley Carter is part of the women’s singles field and Ronnie Schneider is part of the men’s field for the prestigious event. Carter will also team with Carolina senior Whitney Kay for the doubles competition.

Schneider, a junior from Bloomington, Ind., was ranked No. 24 in singles.
