'Hoos Back in ACC Semifinals After Rain-Delayed Win

The Virginia women's tennis team was able to overcome a five-hour delay and advance to the ACC semifinals with a 4-1 win over Georgia Tech in Friday's quarterfinals.

No. 3 seed UVa will face No. 2 seed Miami in Saturday's semifinals. The Hurricanes advanced with a 4-2 win over Notre Dame on Friday.

The Cavaliers are now in the ACC semifinals for the third straight season. UVa has lost its last two semifinal appearances.
