“It was a really special senior day. Amber clinched the doubles point for us and Sofia clinched the singles point and they did it confidently and with a lot of belief. What makes me so proud as a coach is to see how far they’ve come on the court and off and see the impact they have had on this program over the past four years. They truly led the team today with their energy, belief and toughness and it’s exciting to see the determination they are going into this last stretch of our season with. There is still a lot of tennis ahead of us but on behalf of the entire team and staff, we are so thankful for everything these two have brought to UVA tennis and brought into our lives.”
