DURHAM, N.C. – Reid Carleton and Henrique Cunha have each been selected to compete in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships May 25-30 at the Taube Tennis Center in Palo Alto, Calif.
 
Both Carleton and Cunha were at-large selections for the championships. Cunha was awarded the No. 8 overall seed while Carleton received a 9-16 seed. In doubles they will be a 5-8 seed after earning an at-large bid. The two Duke players were chosen as part of the 64-player field in singles and will team up in the 32-team draw for doubles. All matches in the NCAA Individual Championships will be best of three sets.
 
Cunha will be competing in the NCAA Singles Championships for the second straight season. The sophomore from Jaú, Brazil won four matches last year to advance to the semifinals before falling to Bradley Klahn of Stanford. This season Cunha is 32-8 in singles with 18 wins over ranked opponents.

Carleton will also be making his second career appearance in the NCAA Singles Championships. He was selected in 2009 and was knocked out in the first round by Nate Schnugg of Georgia. Carleton, a Naples, Fla. native, is having his best season as a Blue Devil, winning a team-high 33 singles contests thus far with 19 over ranked opponents. 
 
Last season Carleton and Cunha made the quarterfinals in the NCAA Doubles Championships. The record-setting duo is back in the tournament for the second straight year and has a 34-5 record.

The individual NCAA Championships will take place after the team title is decided. Carleton and Cunha will look to lead the Blue Devils to victory in the NCAA Regionals. Duke hosts the first and second rounds May 13-14 with George Washington, Maryland and Michigan coming to Durham.
