Texas senior Chris Camillone and junior David Holiner lost to No. 4 seed Jarmere Jenkins and Mac Styslinger of Virginia in three sets (3-6, 6-2, 6-4) in the finals of the NCAA Doubles Championship on Monday at the Atkins Tennis Center.

The unseeded and 41st-ranked team of Camillone and Holiner became Texas’ first NCAA doubles finalists since 1995 after defeating three top-five teams in the tournament - No. 1 seed on Friday, the No. 5 seed on Saturday and the No. 3 seed on Sunday - before losing in the finals.

The Longhorns broke out of the gates to a 3-0 lead in the first set, but momentum was paused as the match was moved inside due to rain with Texas leading, 4-1. Camillone held serve to clinch the first set for UT, 6-3, despite falling behind LOVE-40.

Virginia would respond with by winning the second set, 6-2, on the indoor courts.

Texas and Virginia were even in the third set until the Longhorns broke serve to take a 3-2 lead. The Cavaliers countered with a service break of their own to tie the set, 4-4.

Virginia broke serve again on match point to take the third set, 6-4, and clinch the match.

After beginning the season as the 8th-ranked team in the nation, Camillone and Holiner finish the season with an 18-9 doubles record and finish their three-year run as a doubles team with a 39-20 record.
