Sunday was a tough afternoon for fans of Kentucky sports. Both the UK softball and men’s tennis teams set out in search of a single victory, but both came up just short of their goal and saw both of their seasons end in a flash.

First, the men’s tennis team saw their incredible run end just shy of claiming their first national title in program history, as Virginia beat the Wildcats 4-0.

It wasn’t long before the softball Wildcats also saw their postseason come to an end after suffering back-to-back losses to Virginia Tech. Kentucky had defeated Virginia Tech on Saturday, 5-4, but lost both of Sunday’s games 2-9 and 4-5 for a combined score of 6-14.

The men’s tennis team finishes their year with a 26-8 record, while the softball team ends the year with a 37-19 record.

A hat tip to both teams on what they accomplished.
