April 15, 2011

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – Number-one ranked Virginia defeated Clemson 6-1 in a men’s Atlantic Coast Conference tennis match at Charlottesville, VA Friday.

Kevin Galloway was the bright spot for Clemson in today’s match as the senior from Charlotte, NC defeated #25th-ranked Sanam Singh of Virginia at number three singles 6-3, 4-6, 12-10.

Virginia, ranked number one in the nation, improves its record to 25-0, 10-0 in the ACC. Clemson is now 15-10 overall, and 2-8 in league play.

“I am very proud of the way Kevin focused today and got the win over a ranked opponent,” said Clemson Head Coach Chuck McCuen. “The match was tight and he really played solid throughout. I am also excited about how we competed as a team. We battled on every court in doubles and singles, and gained momentum for Sunday’s match at Virginia Tech. We hope that the Tigers fans in the Blacksburg, VA area will come out and support us as we play the Hokies at 1:00 p.m.”

Clemson will play at Virginia Tech Sunday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. in the Tigers’ last regular season match before the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament.
