#1 UVa Men's Tennis Aims For 100th Straight ACC Win

Posted: Updated:

The top-ranked UVA men's tennis team will look to make history Friday.

The 'Hoos will be going for their 100th straight ACC win when they host Clemson.

It's a remarkable streak that stretches over the last seven years.

The Cavaliers have won 99-straight ACC matches under head coach Brian Boland, who took over the program twelve years ago.

That's the second longest ACC win streak ever for any sport (Duke women's tennis won 116 in a row from 1989-2000)

Only 10 of the 99 straight wins during the streak have been decided by a score of 4-3.

Virginia has a perfect 17-0 record this season, including 6-0 in the conference.

Head coach Brian Boland says, "It's a great pride to play for the University of Virginia.  It's amazing that we're at this milestone.  We have a chance to win a hundred in a row in such a prestigious and competitive conference like the ACC.  I'm so proud to be at this point, and quite frankly, I believe there is nothing we can't accomplish at this University, but to win 100 in a row and have that opportunity is amazing."

Senior Jarmere Jenkins adds, "With the way Boland is going with this program, I'll be more shocked when we start getting to some bigger numbers, but the big focus for us is the NCAA's."

Virginia's match with Clemson starts Friday at 3 o'clock at the Snyder Tennis Center.
