Seahawks Claim Fifth CAA Men's Tennis Crown

Monday, April 24, 2017

UNCW sophomore Agustin Savarino defeated William & Mary's Christian Cargill in three sets to power the top-seeded Seahawks to their fifth Colonial Athletic Association Men's Tennis title with a 4-2 victory over the No. 3-seeded Tribe late Sunday at the Piedmont Tennis Center.

Playing indoors because of inclement weather, the Seahawks pushed their record to 14-8 on the season and secured the CAA's automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. W&M ended the campaign at 11-12.
"This one's pretty special," said UNCW Head Coach Mait DuBois. "After the last two years, where we were so close and fell short, to do it with eight freshmen makes it special. It's one of the best coaching experiences I've had for sure."
