San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2013
The Virginia men's tennis team won the first NCAA Championship in program history as it defeated UCLA 4-3 in the 2013 NCAA Tournament final Tuesday at the Khan Outdoor Tennis Complex. The second-seeded Cavaliers (30-0) capped an undefeated season with the victory over the top-seeded Bruins (29-2) and became the first ACC school to win a men's tennis NCAA title.
"I don't think it has set in yet but it's a great feeling to win this championship," said head coach Brian Boland. "I am just so happy for the players, not just the current players, but the former players as well. They didn't have this moment, but we wouldn't be here today without them. I believe it was just a matter of time. I didn't know when it would happen, but this is a great moment for the University of Virginia."
In the same day, the most storied program in women's tennis history, Stanford claimed its 17th national championship and first since 2010 in Athens, Ga. Stanford (22-4) also earned its seventh title under coach Lele Forood. The Cardinal were the lowest-seeded team to reach the championship match since 2007.
"It's a great feeling," Coach Lele Forood said. "This has been a great team for a long time. A lot of these players are juniors and seniors who have contributed heavily to the win."
Nike Tennis Camps congratulates both Coach Brian Boland and Lele Forood and their outstanding teams on such an amazing accomplishment. Come learn from the best this summer at the Nike Tennis Camp at University of Virginia and the Stanford University Nike Tennis Camp.
