A National Championship in Something!

On a bad day for Duke basketball, the women's tennis team just captured its first national championship! Before a live ESPNU audience, Duke closed out a 4-0 shutout and celebrated around our old friend Jamie Ashworth. Ironically, while the powerhouses of a decade ago featured a handful of pro players, this team doesn't seem to have any from what they're saying on TV, but I guess that's not what always matter. They no longer run through the ACC undefeated anymore either, but that didn't seem to carry over on the national stage either.
Nice to see another program cash in. Maybe men's lax will break through this weekend too.

Ahh the women's tennis team always had a special place in my heart. Congrats to them.

I wonder what the future PM of Canada V-Webb thought.
