By NU Athletic Communications
  Athens, Ga. - Nebraska's No. 31 ranked doubles team of Christopher Aumueller and Benedikt Lindheim fought hard but fell to Virginia's No. 5 ranked doubles team of Drew Courtney and Jarmere Jenkins in a 6-1, 6-4 loss in the first round of the NCAA Men's Tennis Doubles Championship on Thursday at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

Aumueller and Lindheim ended the regular season with a 32-9 doubles record and ranked 31st nationally by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).

"Virginia played very well and put pressure on our guys from the start," Nebraska Head Coach Kerry McDermott said. "It was a great year for Christopher and Benedikt as they played in the National Indoors and finished their careers playing at the NCAA Doubles Championships. These guys have come a long way in our program and will be missed but have set high standards for other teams to follow."

Both Aumueller and Lindheim finished their careers ranked in Nebraska's top five in career victories.   Aumueller ended his career with 76 victories, which ranked No. 5 all-time in Husker history.  Lindheim closed his career with 89 victories, which ranked No. 4 in NU history.  Christopher Aumueller earned First-Team All-Big Ten honors and Benedikt Lindheim earned Second-Team All-Big Ten Honors.
