CHARLOTTESVILLE - The fifth-ranked Virginia men's tennis team claimed its 11th consecutive ACC regular season title with a 7-0 victory over No. 23 Wake Forest Sunday afternoon at the Snyder Tennis Center. The Cavaliers improved to 19-2 overall and 10-0 in the ACC with their 10th straight win, while the Demon Deacons fell to 14-10 (3-6 ACC).
The victory also gave the Cavaliers sole possession of the ACC all-sport record with their 117th consecutive victory over conference opposition (regular season and postseason). The Duke women's tennis team previously held the record with 116 straight ACC wins from 1989-2000.
"It is something that is hard to believe in terms of the consistency that this program has had recently," said head coach Brian Boland. "We have so much respect for the Atlantic Coast Conference and there are a lot of really good teams in this league. We are humbled and honored to reach this milestone. I can't say enough positive things about the former and current players who have been a part of this run and how their dedication and passion for this program has allowed us to accomplish this feat."
The Cavaliers took a 1-0 lead in the match by winning the doubles point. Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel, Fla.) and Harrison Richmond (Pawleys Island, S.C.) gave Virginia the early edge by downing Jon Ho and Pedro Dumont 8-1 at the No. 1 position. Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) and Luca Corinteli (Alexandria, Va.) clinched the point with an 8-7(2) win at No .2 over Adam Lee and Anthony Delcore. Wake Forest got a win at No. 3 doubles where Maksim Kan and Romain Bogaerts edged Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.) and Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (Charlotte, N.C.) 8-7(5).
Virginia carried their momentum into singles, winning all six first sets. Frank extended the lead to 2-0 with his 6-1, 6-1 win over Lee at No. 2 singles. The Cavaliers clinched the match with wins from the Shane brothers as Justin posted a 6-1, 6-3 win at No. 6 over Dumont, and Ryan downed Kan 6-3, 6-4 at No. 3.
Domijan extended the lead to 5-0 with his 6-3, 6-2 win at No. 1 over Bogaerts and J.C. Aragone (Yorba Linda, Calif,) added a 6-3, 6-3 win at No. 5 over Aws Laaribi. Kwiatkowski completed the sweep with a 6-4, 6-3 win over Ho at the No. 4 position.
The Cavaliers will conclude the regular season on Saturday as they visit Virginia Tech. Virginia will be the No. 1 seed at the ACC Tournament, held Apr. 24-27 in Cary, N.C.
