Cavaliers Win Two, Advance to ECAC Semifinals
PRINCETON, N.J.--The University of Virginia women's tennis team defeated James Madison 5-0 and Princeton 5-1 today to advance to the semifinals of the ECAC Team Championships at Princeton University. The second-seeded Cavaliers will face top-seed Virginia Tech at 10 AM tomorrow for the right to advance to Sunday's championship match.
The Cavaliers dispatched James Madison this morning, winning all five matches in straight sets. Several Cavaliers got back on the winning track against the Dukes as Leslie Cook, Stacy Gingold and Kendall White all ended recent losing streaks. The win marks the first time in 10 years since Virginia last beat James Madison. However, they have only met once since then (in 1990).
Virginia kept up its winning ways in downing host Princeton this afternoon. Christie Schweer ran her winning streak to five matches with a 2-6, 6-2, 6-4 win over Amanda Hastings-Phillips. Paige Boiko extended her winning streak to three with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Blair Farr.
