Pitt Tennis Knocked out of ACC Tournament with 4-0 Loss to Notre Dame

Earlier this week, I noted that Pitt's tennis team finished the regular season only 3-15 and were winless in the ACC. The Panthers played in the ACC Tournament today and were ousted in the opening round, falling 4-0 to Notre Dame.

The loss shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, really. The Panthers have won a total of one conference match since joining the ACC and are an incredulous 1-55 in ACC play.

I don't know what the long-term outlook is for the tennis program but as I said earlier, when you lose that much, it's time to at least start asking some questions. To be fair, the Panthers did win seven matches last year so things weren't this bad last season. But when you look at the overall picture, the program has only averaged a total of three wins in each of the other three seasons they've been in the ACC. And given that there are some cupcakes in there every year, well, that's just not real good.
