University of Virginia women’s tennis team defeated San Diego 4-1, at the Seattle Tennis Center in Seattle, during the 2023 ITA National Team Indoor Championship. As reported by the University of Virginia website, head coach Sara O’Leary explained: “We learned a lot from this weekend.
We lost two close games to Michigan and Pepperdine, but we definitely took a lot out of those games. This is a very tough and every team is good. We’re right up there with these teams, but we have some areas we can really focus on and improve on.
I’m really proud of the resilience the team has shown today against San Diego and throughout the weekend. We faced a lot of adversity facing some illnesses, but to see the team come together like they did today has been amazing.
We can’t wait to get back to Charlottesville to train and continue to improve.”
