Pirate Duo Makes History

Joran Vliegen and Colin Roller are doing something that's never been done before at East Carolina University.

The Pirate tennis duo is heading to the NCAA Championships in men's doubles. They are the first ECU pair to qualify for the tournament.

Vliegen and Roller went undefeated this season at 17-0 and got an automatic bid to the NCAAs after winning the Conference USA tournament.

The NCAA Championships will be held at the University of Illinois in Champaign, Illinois.
