The No. 5 Virginia men’s tennis team concluded its homestand by sweeping a doubleheader with a pair of shutouts on Saturday. The Cavaliers downed Boston College 7-0 in the first match at the Snyder Tennis Center and Eastern Kentucky 7-0 in the nightcap at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar’s Head Sports Club.

Five Cavalier players posted singles wins in both matches. Alex Domijan, Justin Shane and Santiago Villegas all had two straight-set wins on the day. Phillipe Oudshoorn had a straight-set win against the Eagles before rallying from down a set for a three-set win against the Colonels. Mitchell Frank had a 6-0, 6-0 win in the afternoon before rallying from down a set, saving a match point in the process, to win his second match of the day. Jarmere Jenkins added a win against Boston College and Julen Uriguen had a win against Eastern Kentucky.

Against Boston College, Virginia had doubles wins from the teams of Domijan and Steven Rooda, and Oudshoorn and Shane. The teams of Frank and Uriguen, and Rooda and Dino Dell’Orto had doubles victories in the Eastern Kentucky match.

The win over Boston College was Virginia's 81st consecutive victory against ACC competition, extending its conference record. The Cavs improved to 13-1 on the season.

The Cavaliers return to action on March 23 as they visit No. 6 Duke.
