SEATTLE, Wash. –  The No. 7 Virginia women’s tennis team (6-2) picked up a 4-1 victory against No. 17 San Diego (2-5) in its final consolation match at the 2023 ITA National Team Indoor Championship, being held at the Seattle Tennis Center in Seattle, Washington.

Julia Adams and Mélodie Collard opened the match with a 6-1 win on the top doubles court. The Toreros countered with a 6-2 win on court three. Annabelle Xu and Natasha Subhash clinched the point with a 6-2 victory on court two.

In singles, the Cavaliers won five of six first sets. For the second straight day, Xu picked up a straight-set win in singles, this time giving her team a 2-0 lead. Subhash followed with a 6-2, 6-4 victory on court two. San Diego’s Jordyn McBride earned a point for her team with a victory on court six, but Adams clinched the victory with a 6-3, 6-3 win against No. 37 Solymar Colling on the top court.

“We learned a lot from this weekend,” said head coach Sara O’Leary. “We lost two close matches against Michigan and Pepperdine but we definitely took a lot from those matches. This is a very tough tournament and every team is good. We are right there with these teams but have a few areas we can really focus on and improve on. I’m really proud of the resilience the team showed today against San Diego and throughout the weekend. We faced a lot of adversity dealing with some illnesses, but to see the team come together the way they did today was fantastic. We are looking forward to getting back to Charlottesville to train and keep getting better.”
