Danielle Collins Wins NCAA Tennis Singles National Championship

Geoff Burke

Virginia sophomore Danielle Collins won the NCAA Tennis Singles National Championship on Monday afternoon, providing the program with its first ever national championship.

The 2014 outdoor season has been all about reaching new heights for the Virginia women's tennis team. As a team,  they advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals - the furthest of any group in program history. They won more matches this season than any year prior.

But they weren't done there.

Sophomore Danielle Collins - ranked #32 in the country - faced off against Lynn Chi of The University of California on Monday afternoon in the first-ever singles final for a Virginia women's tennis player. In fact, it was the first time a Cavalier had advanced to the quarterfinals or beyond.

Collins did not waste the opportunity. The All-American (only the 4th in program history) took down Chi in straight sets 6-2, 7-5 to bring the hardware home to Charlottesville.

Including Chi, Collins had to defeat five players ranked higher than her nationally. Only one opponent - her first, Northwestern's Veronica Corning - was ranked below her, and the Wildcat came in at a not-too-shabby #43.

Congrats to Danielle Collins on her NCAA title! Oh, and have I mentioned she's only a sophomore?
