The No. 13 Virginia women’s tennis team continued its strong start to the season on Saturday, posting a 4-1 victory over No. 12 Michigan at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. It was the third straight win over Michigan for the Cavaliers dating back to the 2018 season.

As has become a trend this season, Virginia (7-2) took the early lead by claiming the doubles point with wins on courts three and one, respectively. The Cavalier duo of Vivian Glozman and Rosie Johanson won 6-2 on court three before Michigan (4-4) grabbed a 6-4 win on court two. The 59th-ranked pairing of Chloe Gullickson and Amber O’Dell then secured the doubles point with their 6-4 win on court one.

In singles action, the Cavaliers got a straight-set victory from No. 21 Natasha Subhash over No. 35 Giulia Pairone to extend the Virginia lead to 2-0 in the dual score.

Michigan got on the board with a straight-set victory at four singles before Johanson put Virginia back on top by claiming a three-set battle at two singles against Nicole Hammond. The Cavaliers then closed things out as Glozman battled back to claim a three-set victory over No. 94 Alyvia Jones at five singles to secure the match.
