CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The University of Virginia womens tennis swept all six singles matches to clinch a 9-0 victory over N.C. State this afternoon at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center. With the win the Cavaliers improved to 11-7 overall (2-3 in the ACC), while the Wolfpack fell to 14-5 overall and 5-2 in the ACC.
The shutout was the first in the 20-year history of the series.
The Cavaliers jumped ahead early as Kelly Weaver and Leslie Cook dispatched their Wolfpack foes quickly. Weaver defeated Ramsey Roberts 6-1, 6-1 at #6, while Cook downed Marissa Gildemeister 6-0, 6-3 at #4.
Paige Boiko and Christie Schweer each dropped the first set of their matches, but came back to take the next two sets, pushing the Virginia lead to 4-0.
From there the 34th-ranked Cavaliers had to wait a while to gain the victory. Senior co-captain Emily Hill clinched the match for Virginia with a nearly three-hour 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 win over Brie Glover at #3. Stacy Gingold made it a clean sweep for Virginia by defeating Nena Bonacic 4-6, 6-4, 6-1 at #2.
Virginia put the final finishing touches on the triumph by sweeping all three doubles matches.
The Cavaliers return to action on Wednesday (April 15) with a 2:30 PM match at Maryland.
