CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -
The #5 Virginia men's tennis team won the ACC regular season title for the 11th year in a row Sunday, as the Cavaliers beat Wake Forest 7-0 on Senior Day at the Snyder Tennis Center.

The victory against the Demon Deacons is UVa's 117th consecutive win against conference opponents, while breaks the ACC record for all sports.

The Duke women’s tennis team previously held the record with 116 straight ACC wins from 1989-2000.

Virginia head coach Brian Boland's team hasn't lost a league match since 2006.

"I think it's more special for him, because he's basically won every match," says senior Alex Domijan.  "I've only been here for four years, but I'm proud that I've at least continued the streak."

Boland says, "It's a tremendous accomplishment. I'm proud of all the former and current players who put so much effort into providing a consistent day in and day out effort to come to play and compete. A lot of young men put a lot of work in to break this record in the ACC. We cant to continue, now."

Virginia (19-2, 10-0 ACC) will finish up the regular season at Virginia Tech next Saturday.
