We're Still Streaking

Men's Tennis had a huge comeback upset win today over #6 Kentucky to keep the home winning streak alive. That means 70 straight home wins for the Dawgs and Coach Diaz is now one win shy of 500. He will become the 6th coach in NCAA history to surpass 500 career wins. After being down 3-0, the Dawgs stormed back with wins at #3, #4, #6, and #5 singles. The match was clinched by Junior Drake Bernstein. Bernstein was down 3 match points as he was serving in the 3rd set. Down 4-5, love-40, Bernstein stormed back to win the final 3 games as UGA continues streaking in dramatic fashion.

Next match is at home vs. #21 Vanderbilt on Sunday @ 1 pm.

Looking way ahead, the Dawgs will be hosting the NCAA Championships at the Dan Magill Complex, known as the "Mecca of College Tennis" this year. Dates are set for May 20-31 and tickets can be purchased here.
