CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - The Virginia men’s tennis team handed North Carolina its first loss of the season on Sunday, as the 6th ranked Cavaliers defeated the top-ranked Tar Heels 6-1 at the Boar’s Head Sports Club.

The teams played the match indoors, due to inclement weather.

UVA won the doubles point, as well as five of the six singles matches.

The Wahoos (15-2, 9-0 ACC) have won nine consecutive matches, and they are alone in first place in the ACC.

Virginia will be back in action at home against Virginia Tech for Senior Day on Thursday.
