In Houston, the top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team saw its bid for a sixth ITA National Team Indoor Championship come up short with a 4-3 semifinal loss to No. 5 Ohio State Sunday at the Downtown Club at the Met. The Cavaliers (6-1) had their school-record 36-match win streak snapped with the defeat, while the Buckeyes (12-0) advance to Monday’s final.
“It was a great match and I am really proud of the team,” said head coach Brian Boland. “This is exactly what we need this early in the season. It is the kind of situations we want to be in as we prepare for the rest of the season. Give Ohio State credit, they played a great match. There were a lot of momentum shifts and it could have gone either way.”
