 The victory against Wake Forest Sunday was a big one for the #5 Virginia men's tennis team.

The 7-0 win not only clinched the programs eleventh regular season ACC championship in a row and broke the ACC's all-time record with 117 straight wins against conference competition, it was also Senior Day.

Alex Domijan and Justin Shane played their final regular season matches at the Snyder Tennis Center Sunday, and they both picked up easy two-set wins.

The defending national champions are expecting to play a few more matches at home when the NCAA Tournament gets underway.

The UVa senior class has won over 95-percent of its matches over the last four years, and has played in the national title game three years in a row.

Junior Mitchell Frank says, "You hear a lot about guys like Joe Harris or Akil Mitchell, and not to take anything away from them, but what Alex Domijan, Justin Shane, and Ian Uriguen have been able to be a part of is something that I think has been overlooked a little bit. I think their record now is something like 112-5. I mean that's pretty incredible."

Virginia will play its last match of the regular season Saturday at Virginia Tech.
