CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 13 Virginia women's tennis team continued its stellar play against No. 58 Utah during second-day action of the UVa Winter Invitational Sunday (Jan. 19) at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club.
The Cavaliers went 4-2 in singles and 5-0 in doubles against the Utes. Virginia added a pair of singles wins and a doubles victory against Marshall to finish the day 6-2 in singles and 6-0 in doubles.
