BLACKSBURG, Va. - The ninth-ranked Virginia women's tennis team remained unbeaten on the season by sweeping a pair of matches Tuesday in Blacksburg. The Cavaliers topped West Virginia 7-0 in the first match of the day before blanking No. 60 Virginia Tech 7-0 in their ACC opener in the second match of the doubleheader. The Cavaliers improved to 4-0 (1-0 ACC) with the victories.

The Cavaliers didn't drop a set on the day to post the shutout wins. In singles, Lindsey Hardenbergh (Fairfax Station, Va.), Li Xi (Kunming, China), Erin Vierra (Norwell, Mass.), Maria Fuccillo (Rockville, Md.) and Molly O'Koniewski (Hilton Head Island, S.C.) each posted a pair of singles wins on the day.
