Miami lost for just the fifth time this season, dropping the last match of the year to Virginia.
The Canes’ three top singles players all fell, while the other two matches reached a third set before going unfinished.
Next up is the ACC Tournament, where Miami will try to rebound against more top-quality competition.
“I thought we played well at doubles, especially at No. 3,” coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews said. “I’m looking forward to getting to Cary and starting the tournament.”
ACC play begins Thursday. The conference will announce matchups on Monday afternoon.
Track & Field
Although the team standings might indicate otherwise, the Hurricanes had a decent showing at this weekend’s ACC Outdoor Championships.
The women finished 11th overall, while the men ended in ninth. In some individual events, though, Miami made its mark.
Shannon Wright, Taneisha Cordell, Alaine Tate and Jokira Jiles ran the 4x400m relay and turned in a season-best time of 3:39:81. It was good enough for third place.
Isaiah Simmons had a standout performance, winning the men’s shot put and placing third in discus. He earned the field MVP award for his dominant freshman campaign.
