Hokies upset No. 14 Kentucky, 5-2
Virginia Tech, ranked No. 27 in the ITA preseason national poll, lost two of three tight matches to lose the doubles point, but bounced back to win five of the six singles contest.
In singles action, Tech evened the match as Will Beck (Jr., Portomac, Md.), a transfer from Kentucky, picked up the Hokies first point of the day with a, 6-1, 6-3, win at No. 6 over Alex Lambropoulos. However, just moments later Kentucky recaptured the lead as Anthony Rossi won, 6-0, 6-2, over No. 100 Sebastien Jacques (Jr., Magog, Quebec, Canada) in the No. 5 match.
