Virginia men’s tennis repeats as national champions

The Virginia Cavaliers are national champions yet again.

On Tuesday, the Virginia men’s tennis team won its second-straight NCAA title at the Michael D. Case Tennis Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. To earn consecutive national championships, Virginia topped Oklahoma, 4-1.

Tuesday’s win gives the Cavaliers three national titles in four years.
