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. The Tigers, 15-5, advance to play the winner of the #7 Maryland/#2 Duke match in the semifinals on Saturday, April 22.
Clemson, which won the regular season match 5-4 on April 2 in Clemson, S.C., took a 4-2 lead after the six singles matches. The Tigers clinched the victory by winning two of three doubles matches to make the final score 6-3.
In singles play, the 'Hoos received wins from their two ACC singles flight champions, first-year Jen Tuchband (Millburn, N.J./Millburn) and third-year Kelly Weaver (Kingston, N.Y./Kingston). Tuchband won her #5 singles match 7-6 (2), 6-4 over Clemson's Christina Oldock. It marked Tuchband's second win of the season over Oldock.
