snapshot HAIR-RAISING ACCOMPLISHMENT The No. 1 UVA men's tennis team captured the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Team Indoor Championship with a 4‑1 victory over No. 3 Ohio State Feb. 20 at the Boyd Tins‑ ley Courts at the Boar's Head Sports Club in Charlottesville. Fourth‑year J.C. Aragone clinched the match for UVA with a win at No. 4 singles, setting off a wild celebration. It marked the program's sixth such title, but its first since 2013. Last year, the Cavaliers finished runner‑up. Virginia also has won three of the last four NCAA championships, taking the team titles in 2013, 2015 and 2016. "I am a huge fan of indoor tennis, so for me this has always been a goal," Aragone said. "… As I clinched it, I did think 'thank God, this is over' a little bit. I was so tired, I did not want to keep playing. I was just trying to get out of there and save my team, because you never know." PHOTO BY MATT RILEY/COURTESY UVA
