Cavaliers Post Two Shutout Victories

RICHMOND, Va. -- The University of Virginia men's tennis team threw shutouts this afternoon in winning a pair of matches at the VCU Tennis Center in Richmond, Va. With the wins, the Cavaliers improve their record this season to 3-1.

The Cavaliers blanked George Washington 5-0 in the afternoon's first match and followed that with a 5-0 whitewash of Georgetown later in the afternoon.

Virginia head coach Thomas Johnston took the opportunity to see many different players in action.

Unlike most matches that consist of six singles and three doubles matches, today's event included just four singles and one doubles match.

Bear Schofield was the lone Cavalier to play singles in both matches, recording straight-set victories in both to improve his record to 8-6 overall.

Freshmen Brian Vahaly and Huntley Montgomery gained straight-set singles wins to help key the win over George Washington. They then paired to gain a doubles win against Georgetown.

The Cavaliers travel to Williamsburg to face William & Mary on Wednesday (Feb. 11) at 6:00 PM.
