Vahaly Falls in First Round of NCAA Tournament

May 27, 1998

ATHENS, Ga.--University of Virginia freshman Brian Vahaly lost to Thomas Dupre of Mississippi State 6-4, 6-3 this afternoon in the first round of the individual championships of the NCAA Men's Tennis Tournament at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on the campus of the University of Georgia. The match was delayed early in the first set due to rain.

The loss ends Vahaly's season. He finished with a 21-10 singles record this season. The Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Year, Vahaly is the first Cavalier in 17 years to earn a bid to the NCAA Tournament's individual championships.

Dupre, a senior from Normandy, France, is the tournament's fifth seed. He is currently ranked eighth nationally in the collegiate singles rankings. He advances to play Georgia's Steven Baldas in the second round.
