A year after claiming the Atlantic 10 championship in its inaugural season in the conference, the VCU men’s tennis team fell to George Washington University 4-1 in the finals at Boar’s Head Sports Club, in Charlottesville, Va. on Sunday, April 20.
As the 2013-14 men’s tennis regular season wraps up, teams across the conference are preparing for the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship to be played April 17-20 at Boar’s Head Sports Club in Charlottesville, Va.
The VCU men’s tennis team hit a slump in March, losing four of its last six contests. However, the Rams rebounded in April with a blowout win against Norfolk State University, which improved their record to 13-9 on the year.
VCU junior sprinter Kiara Porter didn’t develop a passion for track and field until she was in eighth grade, but once she laced up the cleats for the first time, the Yorktown, Va. native never looked back.
Before she was a collegiate tennis star, before the Atlantic 10 Conference honors, before the NCAA appearance, Cindy Chala was a typical teenager from the suburban town of Versailles, located about 10 miles southwest of Paris.
