UVa Men’s Tennis Won the NCAA Title

After years of getting painstakingly close to a title, the UVa Men’s tennis team finally won its first championship today in dramatic fashion.  With the title match tied 3-3 against UCLA, the Wahoos were down to their final point in the third and final set, when sophomore Mitchell Frank rallied to win four straight games to clinch the title. The victory was Virginia’s 30th to cap off an undefeated season.  Here are some quick stats on the Cavaliers historic season and recent run of dominance.
  • During the season, they won their 100th consecutive ACC match.
  • Their combined match record was 160-22.
  • This is only the third match of the season that the opponent even got three match wins
  • This was their third straight title game appearance, falling to USC the previous two times
  • In the past eight seasons, UVa has a combined team record of 256-13 for a .952 winning percentage.
  • This gives Virginia it’s 20th national title overall, fourth most in the ACC.

Time to get a new t-shirt
