But Charlotte Bellomy, a senior and the Eagles' third No. 1 singles player in as many seasons, recognizes her current role.

Bellomy is still mulling her plans after high school but seems to favor Wake Forest, where her sister plays club tennis. But plenty of tennis remains during her senior season.
