MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  The West Virginia University tennis team capped tournament action at the Wahoowa Invitational on Sunday afternoon, at the Virginia Tennis Courts at the Boar’s Head Resort in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“This was a great weekend for us to start the fall season,” Mountaineer coach Miha Lisac said. “We saw a lot of great competition from our players. It’s always important to us as we build the program that we are growing as competitors. It’s good to challenge ourselves against the top competition and gauge how much progress we’ve made, and what feedback we need to apply to our efforts these next few months.”

The Mountaineers finished the weekend with eight wins, tallying five singles wins and three singles victories.
