Montes and von der Schulenburg won a pair of matches at the No. 3 court in a pair of 5-2 road wins over No. 13 Wake Forest and No. 16 NC State. The Cavalier duo defeated NC State’s pair of Yannai Barkai and Collin Shick, 6-3, and clinched the doubles point against Wake Forest’s tandem of Taha Baadi and Melios Efstathiou, 6-3.
Montes and von der Schulenburg are 8-2 in doubles this season and have won their last five matches.

Von der Schulenburg was named the ACC Men’s Tennis Singles Player of the Week that same week.
