MIAMI, Fla. - The No. 55 University of Virginia women's tennis team lost to No. 36 Florida International University Wednesday afternoon (Mar. 14), 6-1, in Miami, Fla. The Cavaliers fall to 9-3 overall with the loss.
Virginia's top doubles team of Henriette Williams (Raleigh, N.C./Broughton) and Christie Schweer (Houston, Texas/Memorial) got the Cavaliers off to a solid start with an 8-3 victory over Annelise Rose and Mari Toro. Virginia's other two doubles teams lost and forfeited the lone doubles point to FIU.
