Georgia men's tennis ends season with semifinal loss to North Carolina

Georgia men's tennis ends season with semifinal loss to North Carolina

The original plan had the No. 2 Virginia men facing No. 9 North Carolina at 1 p.m. and the No. 1 Florida women meeting No. 6 Stanford at 5 p.m.

The Irish veteran showed his signature resolve as the match stretched to three sets, coming away with a hard-fought 4-6, 6-3, 7-6 (3) come-from-behind victory in his first individual NCAA appearance.

This is the fourth title in five seasons for the Cavaliers (34-1).

Old Dominion second baseman Jared Young was named the Conference USA Newcomer of the Year, while shortstop Zach Rutherford was named the Conference USA Player of the Year.

After falling behind 3-0 to begin the match, the 51st-ranked Hagar won the next two games to return the set to serve, eventually tying it at 3-all and 4-all. The junior duo are now one of the hottest doubles teams in the country, going from unranked to the Top-10 in in just over two months after compiling a 6-1 against ranked pairs including wins over then No. 2 Robert Loeb and Jan Zeilinski of Georgia and No. 9 Trevor Foshey and Niclaus Braun of Mississippi State. Match time has yet to be determined due to possible rain-related weather delays.

Boyden won the clinching match in three sets against Georgia's Robert Loeb on Monday and he also provided the clincher on Saturday in a three-set victory over Wake Forest's Alan Gadjiev.

"Overall I am just so proud of my senior class", Paul said.

Does Tony Adams retain a place in Arsenal fans hearts?
His 23 goals and 10 assists makes him the only Premier League player this season with double digit goals and double digit assists. Asked on Friday if the Everton clash will be his last game in charge of Arsenal at the Emirates, he gave a sarcastic response.

The match was a rematch of an earlier contest this season where Virginia defeated the Tar Heels 4-3 at Snyder Tennis Center in Charlottesville.

The sixth-seeded Cardinal was denied its 19th championship. This isn't to say that UNC looked outwardly unprepared or not composed, but there were several unforced errors on the Tar Heel side that looked a lot like nervous misses, and significantly fewer on the Virginia side.

However, it was a different story against North Carolina.

The top four singles matches, similar to the doubles matches, were evenly lopsided.

Head coach Brian Boland leaves Virginia having been in six of the last seven NCAA Championships - four of which he won - along with a host of other accolades that cement him as one of Virginia sports' all-time greats.

On the women's side, junior Arianne Hartono will compete in singles and in doubles with freshman Alexa Bortles.
