The Blue Raiders finished the season 8-2 at home, including seven consecutive victories.
"It was a nice win in the last home match, especially after one of the toughest losses [to Tulane] in school history on Saturday," head coach Dale Short said. "I'm very happy for Kirk and Trevor, winning in their last home match.
"We are playing some great tennis right now, even with the losses to [22nd-ranked] Vanderbilt and [27th-ranked] Tulane this week. We are a completely different team than we were two or three weeks ago."
