NORCROSS, Ga. -- The 53rd-ranked University of Virginia women's tennis team lost to 26th-ranked Clemson 6-3 in the quarterfinals of the ACC Championship Friday morning, April 21 at the Racquet Club of the South. With the loss, the Cavaliers have been eliminated from the ACC tournament and now stand at 13-10 on the season.
