Women's Tennis Falls to Richmond

March 31, 1999

RICHMOND, Va - Despite winning four of six singles matches, the University of Virginia women's tennis team dropped a 5-4 decision to Richmond Tuesday at the UR Tennis Complex. The Cavaliers dropped to 9-4 overall this season, while the Spiders improved to 10-5 this year. The loss snapped Virginia's eight-match winning streak over the Spiders and was the first loss to them since 1990.

Things looked bright for the Cavaliers heading into doubles play as they led 4-2. Leslie Cook won her fifth match in a row with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Amy Croker at #4 to help lead the Cavaliers in singles. Interestingly, Croker's brother, Tommy, plays #5 for the UVa men's tennis team.

Kelly Weaver won for the eighth time in her last nine matches with a 7-6, 6-3 win over Wesley Kohl at #6. Other winners for Virginia were Paige Boiko at #1 and Amy O'Donnell at #3.

Croker and Kohl began Richmond's comeback with an 8-4 victory at #3 doubles over O'Donnell and Weaver. The loss ended a five-match winning streak for the Cavalier duo. The Spiders drew even as Elizabeth Cascarilla and Catherine Hawley stopped Cook and Christie Schweer by an 8-5 count at #2. Janelle Williams and Lindsay Woodworth clinched Richmond's victory by gaining a hardfought 9-8 win over Boiko and Stacy Gingold at #1.
