Sophomore Danielle Collins found a pretty strong way to cap off the best season in the history of the Virginia women's tennis program.
Collins defeated Cal's Lynn Chi 6-2, 7-5 to win the NCAA Singles championship Monday afternoon at the University of Georgia. It's the program's first NCAA singles title.
After cruising to a win in the first set, Collins won 11 straight points to rally from a 3-5 deficit in the second set to secure the championship. Collins, who entered the tournament ranked No. 32, finishes her sophomore season at 36-10.
Collins transferred to UVa this season after spending a year at Florida. This spring, she helped the Cavaliers win a school record 24 matches -- including the program's first-ever ACC Tournament title, and its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Quarterfinals.
