The top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team remained unbeaten on the season with a 6-1 victory over North Carolina on Sunday at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. The Cavaliers (13-0, 2-0 ACC) extended their winning streak to 95 straight wins over conference foes.

“Any ACC win is a quality win, so we are pleased with the result,” said head coach Brian Boland. “Friday’s match (against Duke) came down to the end and it is always tough to bounce back after an emotional match like that one. I think some of the guys were disappointed in their performance against Duke. Those players bounced back today with quality matches and that shows the character of this team.”

Virginia took the lead by winning the doubles point. In singles, the Cavaliers continued their momentum, winning five of the six first sets. Alex Domijan was first to finish, cruising to a 6-1, 6-1 win at No. 3. Mac Styslinger followed with a 6-2, 6-1 win at No. 5 and Harrison Richmond clinched the victory as he completed a 6-3, 6-4 win at the No. 6 position. Mitchell Frank added a 6-2, 6-4 victory at No. 2 to extend the lead to 5-0.

Virginia concludes its homestand on Thursday as its hosts in-state rival Virginia Tech. Match time at the Snyder Tennis Center is set for 3 p.m.
