Men’s Tennis

The 14th-ranked Miami men’s tennis team handed No. 8 Virginia its first ACC loss in two seasons Friday, knocking off the Cavaliers 4-3.

The victory over the Cavaliers (17-6, 7-1 ACC) marks Miami’s (14-3, 6-2 ACC) fourth over a higher ranked opponent this season.

Virginia opened the afternoon with a 3-0 sweep in doubles, including the Cavaliers’ 27th-ranked tandem of Rylan Rizza and Nick Meythaler’s 8-5 victory over UM’s 30th-ranked duo of Luigi D’Agord and Daniel Vallverdu. Heading into singles, D’Agord-ranked 5th nationally-put UM on the board first with a 6-3, 6-4 win over No. 9 Somdev Devvarman.

Virginia’s 53rd-ranked Treat Huey claimed the next singles point, downing Tim Krebs 6-2, 6-4 at No. 4. Next was UM’s Vallverdu, who upended No. 91 Doug Stewart 6-1, 6-4 at No. 2 just before John Hoyes defeated UVa’ Darrin Cohen 6-1, 6-3 at No. 6.

The match drew to a 3-3 tie when Rizza overtook the Hurricanes’ 72nd-ranked Josh Cohen 6-3, 5-7, 6-3 on the No. 2 court. With the deciding match point focused on court No. 5, Miami’s Eric Hechtman bounced back from a 6-4 first set loss to Marko Miklo to win 6-2, 6-1 in the second and third sets, respectively, clinching the upset.

Rowing

The University of Miami rowing team’s Novice 8 came in first and the Varsity 8 and Junior Varsity 8 came in second at the Florida Intercollegiate Rowing Association (FIRA) State Championships Saturday afternoon at the Krome Avenue Quarry.
