WINSTON-SALEM, N.C.-- Freshman Miles Holvoet and redshirt freshman Jared Morris were victorious on Sunday, sweeping their respective singles flight championships at the Wake Forest Invitational. The pair of underclassmen were the only East Carolina players competing in the championship round on the final day of the tournament.
