CORAL GABLES, Fla. - The top-ranked Virginia men's tennis team completed its seventh consecutive undefeated ACC regular season on Sunday with a 6-1 victory over No. 55 Miami on a windy day at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center. The Cavaliers (21-0, 10-0 ACC) won their 77th consecutive ACC regular season match and their 103rd straight against conference opposition (regular season and postseason), while the Hurricanes end the regular season at 13-12 overall and 2-8 in the ACC.
"I am proud of the way we closed out the regular season," said head coach Brian Boland. "The conditions in Miami today were brutal, so it was a good challenge for us to deal with. With the wind, it was absolutely the most difficult conditions we have played in all season."
Virginia took a 1-0 lead by winning the doubles point for the 16th consecutive match. Justin Shane (Falls Church, Va.) and Julen Uriguen (Guatemala City, Guatemala) moved up to No. 2 and downed William Albanese and Jack Murphy 8-2. Jarmere Jenkins (College Park. Ga.) and Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) topped Diego Soto and Gabriel Flores 8-4 at No. 1 to clinch the point and Alex Domijan (Wesley Chapel Fla.) and Harrison Richmond (Pawleys Island, S.C.) completed the sweep with an 8-6 win at No. 3 over Wilfredo Gonzalez and Victor Mauz.
The Cavaliers opened singles play by winning five of the six first sets and won three matches in straight sets to close out the victory. Richmond finished first, downing Murphy 6-3, 6-2 at No. 6 to extend the lead to 2-0. Domijan followed with a 7-6, 6-1 victory at the No. 1 position over Soto to make the score 3-0. Styslinger clinched the win at No. 4, topping Albanese 6-3, 7-5 for the fourth Cavalier point.
Uriguen extended the lead to 5-0 as he posted a 6-3, 6-7, 6-1 win over Mauz at No. 5 and Jenkins added a 7-5, 7-6 victory over Flores at No. 2. In the final match on the courts, Gonzalez defeated Ryan Shane (Falls Church, Va.) 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 at No. 3 singles to make the final score 6-1.
Virginia will be the No. 1 seed in next week's ACC Tournament at the Cary Tennis Park in Cary, N.C. After a first round bye, the Cavaliers will open play with a quarterfinal match on Friday.
