The Texas A&M women's tennis dominates the singles to move on to the Final Four

After losing a point in the doubles matches the No. 13 Texas A&M (26-7) women's team stormed back to beat No. 5 Virginia 4-1 to move on to the Final Four. Also, for the second meet in a row, the Aggies have upset the higher-ranked team and they have reclaimed their spot as a top-four team in the country.

It was no turning back once the singles matches started with the Aggies swarming all over Virginia after losing earlier in the meet. They had a clean sweep in the first frame and were well on their way to a complete sweep when SEC Freshman of the Year. Lucciana Perez closed out the day with a victory in her match.

Head Coach Mark Weaver went on to talk about the performance in the Elite 8.

"That was a very impressive performance by our group. It was an exciting doubles point that came down to the wire. There was a lot of nerves on both sides. Those doubles points are kind of a roll of the dice and sometimes they can go either way. Excellent composure by the girls to win all six first sets [in singles] and really set the tone there. We brought it, and you could see the confidence growing on our side of the court. It's a big stage out there and we really handled it well, especially in singles. I'm very proud of our group."
