The No. 23 Orange, with a 4-7 record in doubles, went up against the Cavaliers’ three ranked doubles pairings. Sofya Golubovskaya and Sonya Treshcheva were the first to fall, losing their set 6-1 against No. 41 Vivian Glozman and Rosie Johanson. Soon after, UVA’s first doubles team of No. 51 Chloe Gullickson and Amber O’Dell defeated Zeynep Erman and Guzal Yusupova by an identical 6-1 score.
