Cavalier Women's Tennis Downed At Clemson
March 28, 2004
CLEMSON, SC – The No. 62 ranked Virginia women’s tennis team suffered its sixth consecutive defeat, falling 7-0 at No. 20 Clemson Sunday afternoon. The loss drops Virginia’s record to 9-8 overall, 0-3 in the ACC.
Clemson (15-3, 4-0 ACC) took an early advantage by taking all three doubles matches to take the doubles point. The Cavaliers then needed to win four singles matches to rally in the dual match. However, Virginia managed to win just one match. Shannon Stough (Hot Springs, Ark.) rallied after dropping the first set to defeat Richele LeSaldo in a third-set superbreaker at No. 6 singles.
The Cavaliers will return to action Saturday when they host North Carolina at the Snyder Tennis Center.
