CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia men's tennis first-year Harrison Richmond (Pawleys Island, S.C.) won the singles title at the ITA Atlantic Regional as play concluded Tuesday at the Snyder Tennis Center. He becomes the fifth Cavalier in the past six years to win the regional singles title.

Richmond, the tournament's No. 7 seed, defeated his top-seeded teammate, Jarmere Jenkins (College Park, Ga.) 6-4, 7-5, in the final. With the victory, Richmond qualifies for the ITA Intercollegiate Indoor Championships next month in New York.

In the doubles final, Andreas Bjerrehus and Amerigo Contini of Virginia Tech topped the Cavalier team of Justin Shane (Falls Church, Va.) and Julen Uriguen (Guatemala City, Guatemala) 6-1, 6-7, 6-2.

Richmond joins Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) and Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) in the ITA Indoors singles field. Styslinger and Domijan each qualified for the tournament due to their performance at the ITA All-American Championships. The doubles team of Jenkins and Styslinger also qualified for the ITA Indoors with their performance at the ITA All-American Championships. Virginia could get additional players into the singles and doubles draws when the at-large and wild card entries are announced.
