referring to Duke swimming and diving aims for historic win against North CarolinaBy Alex Sanfilippo | Friday, January 27Photo by Neal Vaidya | The Chronicle The Blue Devil women have never beaten North Carolina but have a good chance to accomplish the feat this weekend.
In the last couple of seasons, multiple Duke athletic programs have accomplished historic victories against Tobacco Road rival North Carolina.
A win Saturday would be a first at any location against the Tar Heels for the Duke women, who moved up one spot in the rankings to No.

Sophomore Max St. George and senior Peter Kropp return to Duke in those two areas, respectively, but face a much-improved North Carolina contingent.
