No. 1 Virginia Reaches 10th Straight ACC Final

The Virginia men's tennis team continued its search for a seventh consecutive ACC Championship Saturday with a 4-0 semifinal victory over Clemson. The Cavaliers (23-0) reached their 10th straight ACC final with the victory and will look for their ninth championship during that span on Sunday. Virginia will play Wake Forest in Sunday’s championship match.

"We continue to get better with every match," said head coach Brian Boland. "The guys are really focused and are going about their business the right way. I couldn't be happier about the level we are playing at. We are looking forward to tomorrow."

Virginia took a 1-0 lead winning the doubles point for the 18th consecutive match.

The Cavaliers got singles wins from Julen Uriguen, Mitchell Frank and Ryan Shane to seal the win.

The victory was Virginia's 105th consecutive win over ACC opposition (regular season and tournaments) and its 20th straight win in the ACC Tournament.

"It is a tribute to a lot of hard work by former and current players," said Boland of reaching the ACC final for 10 consecutive years. "We are appreciative of everyone who has supported us over the past decade and believes in us and how we are building this program. It is certainly an honor, but we are focused on playing great tennis tomorrow."

The ACC Tournament final begins at 11 a.m. on Sunday at the Cary Tennis Park
