CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - University of Tennessee women's tennis freshman and No. 53 ranked Eve Repic upset Virginia's No. 28 Danielle Collins at No. 2 singles on day one of the UVA Winter Invitational.
Repic was the lone Lady Vol to earn a singles victory against the No. 13 ranked Cavaliers using three sets to do so and coming away with a 6-2, 6-7(6), 10-5 victory.
The day began with doubles as Tennessee mixed up the pairings on day one. Junior Joanna Henderson matched with freshman Victoria Olivarez in her first doubles match of the day falling 6-0 before pairing up with Repic, but fell 6-2 on court one.
In singles action, Repic earned her upset victory, but Virginia's lineup, with four ranked players in the top four spots came away with five of the six wins.
Tennessee pushed the Cavaliers to the limits forcing three set matches on three of the six courts.
The Lady Vols will return to action on Sunday morning at 9 a.m., an hour earlier than previously scheduled against a combination of players from Virginia Commonwealth and Marshall.
