Charlottesville, Va. – The UVa men’s tennis team picked up its seventh victory of the season, with a convincing 7-0 win over Georgetown on Saturday afternoon. The Cavaliers improve to 7-3, with their second shutout of the season.

“I was pleased with the team’s performance today,” head coach Brian Boland said. “I was pleased with how prepared the team was to play considering the wait we had due to weather. They were focused in doubles, and well prepared. I thought we came out really ready and got the job done.”
