Today we will honor two student-athletes who are playing their final regular-season match on the home courts
Vivian Glozman has been a fixture in the UVA lineup since transferring here for her sophomore season. Over her three seasons on Grounds, she has been nationally ranked in both doubles and singles by the ITA and has been recognized as the ACC Player of the Week. Last season, she was the Kitty Harrison Invitational doubles champion and won 12-straight doubles matches to close out the season.
Rosie Johanson has been an impact player for the Cavaliers. She’s been ranked in singles and doubles, rising as high as No. 7 in the doubles rankings. She’s was the ITA Atlantic Region rookie of the year before becoming an All-ACC first-teamer her sophomore season. She’s earned invitations to both the NCAA singles and doubles championships, but perhaps her most telling honor came last season when she was named the Atlantic Region’s Cissie Leary Sportsmanship Award winner.
