Michigan doubles pair Chiara Lommer and Giulia Pairone lost on a crucial break point to Virginia.

Facing a break point, Giulia Pairone and Chiara Lommer knew the pressure was on. With the other doubles matches already finished, the two seniors knew the upcoming point would determine whether Michigan or Virginia won the crucial doubles point.

In the first varsity meet of his college career, Parris decisively beat top-ranked heavyweight in the nation Amar Dhesi, 11-4.
