UVA Tennis Teams Both Capture ACC Victories

Posted: Updated:

The #1 Virginia men's tennis team beat #8 Duke 4-3 Friday, while the UVA women topped Boston College 6-1.

The victory is the 94th in a row against conference opponents for the Cavalier men.

Virginia trailed 3-2 in the match against the Blue Devils at the Snyder Tennis Center, but freshman Mac Styslinger (6-1, 7-6(9-7)) and senior Julen Uriguen (7-6(8-6), 6-4) earned wins at #4 and #6 singles to clinch the match.

Sophomore Mitchell Frank won his match 6-0, 6-0, and the Wahoos also won the doubles point.

UVA (12-0, 1-0 ACC) will host North Carolina Sunday at 1pm.

The women's match was moved inside to the Boar's Head Sports Club due to chilly temperatures.

The win is the fourth in a row for UVA, who improve to 7-6 overall, and 2-0 in the conference.

The Cavaliers will host Virginia Tech Saturday at noon at the Snyder Tennis Center.
