CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia softball team won its own 2001 UVa Cavalier Classic with a perfect 4-0 record. The Cavaliers were scheduled to play a doubleheader against Rutgers on Sunday (March 4) at The Park in the final day of competition in the tournament, but the games were rained-out. Only one of the four games scheduled for Sunday was played as Ohio defeated Drexel 7-1. The second game of doubleheader between the two teams was canceled, as was Virginia's twinbill against Rutgers.
Virginia won the three-day, four-team tournament with a 4-0 record, while Ohio was second with a 3-2 record. Rutgers finished third with a 2-3 mark and Drexel was fourth with a 1-4 record.
The Cavaliers swept a doubleheader from Drexel in the first day of the tournament on Friday. UVa won the first game 8-4 and then took the nightcap 1-0. On Saturday, UVa defeated Ohio University 4-0 in the first game and completed the sweep with a 7-4 victory in the second game.
Virginia returns to action March 9-11 when it competes in the UNC-Charlotte 49er Invitational. The Cavaliers open play in the tournament on Friday (March 11) at 3:00 p.m. against UNC-Charlotte.
