No. 1 Virginia blanks BC

Squad easily wallops Eagles to register 97th consecutive ACC victory

The No. 1 Virginia men’s tennis team cruised through the first game of a three-match road stretch with a 7-0 victory at Boston College Saturday.

All three Cavalier (15-0, 4-0 ACC) doubles pairs won their matches to give the team an early 1-0 lead. On the first court, the No. 2 tandem of senior Jarmere Jenkins and freshman Mac Styslinger topped Philip Nelson and Michael McGinnis of the Eagles (5-9, 0-4 ACC) 8-4. No. 9 sophomore Mitchell Frank and junior Alex Domijan defeated Billy Grokenberger and Matt Wagner 8-1 on the second court before No. 31 junior Justin Shane and senior Julen Uriguen closed out the point by trouncing Kyle Childree and Alexandre Thirouin 8-2 at No. 3.

In singles, six ranked Cavaliers blew out six unranked Eagles. No. 2 Jenkins downed Nelson 6-1, 6-4 at the No. 1 slot. No. 1 Domijan ousted McGinnis 6-4, 6-2 on the second court, and No. 27 Frank downed Grokenberger with two 6-1 sets at the third. No. 39 freshman Ryan Shane and No. 16 Styslinger followed with decisive straight set triumphs, with each dropping just one game. Finally, No. 72 freshman Harrison Richmond blasted Thirouin 6-2, 6-0 at No. 6.

The win marked Virginia’s 97th consecutive conference victory. The team will seek another Friday against Wake Forest.
