Soriano Barrera Caps Collegiate Career at NCAAs
ORLANDO, Fla. – University of Miami men’s tennis senior Adria Soriano Barrera fell in the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship Monday afternoon against No. 25 Alexis Galarneau of NC State, 1-6, 0-6.
With the loss, the Barcelona, Spain, native capped his final season as a Hurricane with a 10-8 mark, while wrapping up his career with 64 career singles victories.
Making his second appearance in the 64-player field, and third overall (doubles (2018), singles (2019, 2021)), he became the first Hurricane since Daniel Vallverdu (2006-09) to earn multiple selections to the tournament.
Playing at the top singles position all season long, the Miami senior also collected his third All-ACC accolade in April, becoming only the second Hurricane in program history to garner the honor at least three times, joining Vallverdu (2006-09) who claimed the accolade four times.
Earning first-team status following an unblemished 3-0 record against top-20 individuals, he became the first men’s tennis student-athlete in program history to claim first-team recognition, as the league did not move to naming separate teams until 2014.
