Men's Tennis Competes in ACC Indoor Tournament

CLEMSON, S.C. - The University of Virginia men's tennis team opened its spring schedule this weekend at the ACC Coaches' Indoor Tennis Tournament at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center on the campus of Clemson University.

Bear Schofield and Hyon Yoo both advanced to the fourth round before being eliminated for the best showing among seven Cavaliers competing in the singles bracket.

Yoo, the fourth seed, drew a first round bye and defeated Maryland's Dale Cathell 6-4, 6-4 in the second round. Yoo downed Pablo Bellagamba of Clemson 7-6 (7-2), 6-2 to advance to a showdown with #6 seed Rob Tedesco of North Carolina. Tedesco got the win as Yoo was forced to retire early in the second set.

Schofield, the eighth seed, also drew a first round bye and downed Mike Berger of Wake Forest 6-2, 6-7, 6-2 in the second round. Schofield then got a relatively easy win over Duke freshman Ramsey Smith 6-2, 6-1. Schofield's luck ran out in the fourth round against top-seeded Roberto Bracone from N.C. State 6-2, 6-1.

Justin Smith and John Winter teamed in doubles to advance to the semifinals of the doubles draw before they were eliminated by Clemson's fifth-seeded duo of Bruce Li and Darren Knight 8-6.

The Cavaliers play their first dual match of the season on Saturday (Jan. 31) against Ball State in Ann Arbor, Mich.
