The Georgia’s women tennis team fell barely short in its bid to win a national championship.
The Bulldogs advanced all the way the NCAA finals, but they were swept 4-0 by Stanford, the defending national champions.
UGA finishes the year with a 28-2 record, with the other loss being to South Carolina during the regular season. Ironically, the Bulldogs defeated Stanford 4-3 during the season this past February.
Georgia and Stanford has now met four times to play for the NCAA championship, with each team winning twice.
The Bulldogs made it to Sunday’s finals after pulling off dramatic wins over Duke and Vanderbilt in the previous two rounds.
With no seniors on the roster, UGA will be heavily favored to return to the finals in 2020.
FINAL | Georgia’s remarkable season ends.
Thank You #DawgNation for your support this week and all season! ❤️
This team has no seniors. We will be back.
