CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- A season filled with grief has ended for Virginia's women's lacrosse team.
The Cavaliers lost 17-7 Saturday to North Carolina in the quarterfinals of the NCAA tournament.
Virginia (14-6) was playing its first road game since Yeardley Love's death three weeks ago. The season concluded the day before Love was supposed to graduate.
Coach Julie Myers has said that continuing to play was therapeutic. She felt lacrosse kept the team together and gave the players something to focus on besides their late teammate.
Now, after their most lopsided loss of the year, they head into the uncertainty of the offseason.
