STILLWATER, Okla. –  Virginia men’s tennis freshman Dylan Dietrich had his season end in the Round of 16 of the 2024 NCAA Men’s Tennis Singles Championship at the Greenwood Tennis Center in Stillwater, Okla.

Dietrich was slated to open the tournament by taking on top seed Johannus Monday of Tennessee, but Monday withdrew, and Dietrich faced No. 68 Ryan Colby of Georgia instead. He topped Colby 6-4, 6-2 to advance to the second round.

Dietrich topped No. 36 Thomas Paulsell of Georgia, 6-4, 6-3, in the second round to advance to the round of 16 where he was edged 7-5, 7-6 (5) by No. 30 Jack Anthrop of Ohio State.

Dietrich, the ACC Freshman of the Year, was ranked No. 52 in the ITA Singles rankings heading into the tournament. He went 23-7 in singles this year.

By advancing to the Round of 16, he will earn All-America honors in singles next month when those accolades are announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.

Seniors Chris Rodesch, Iñaki Montes and Jeffrey von der Schulenburg all qualified to compete in the singles championship but withdrew. Rodesch was slated to be the No. 4 seed in the tournament. Von der Schulenburg was the first alternate when selections were announced and moved into the field via withdrawals. It would have been von der Schulenburg’s fourth time competing in the championship.

Virginia did have a team compete in the doubles draw. Montes and grad student James Hopper were a 5-8 seed in the doubles draw but withdrew from that competition.
