Men's Tennis Drops Notre Dame (Again), Moves on to Quarterfinals

Streeter Lecka

The Virginia men's tennis team downed Notre Dame in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen this afternoon in Athens, Ga. It was the 4th time this season the Cavaliers beat the Irish.

In February, Virginia men's tennis defeated Notre Dame 4-2 in the ITA Indoor Championships.

In March, Virginia again defeated the Irish 6-1 in Charlottesville.

In April, the Cavaliers dropped Notre Dame 4-0 in the ACC Tournament.

Now it's May. Guess that mean's its time to beat them again, right?

This afternoon, the Cavaliers took down Notre Dame 4-1 to advance to the NCAA quarterfinals for the 10th consecutive seasons.

Dear Notre Dame,

Welcome to the ACC.

Love,

Virginia Men's Tennis

The Cavaliers started strong, taking the doubles point with a pair of 8-6 wins at #2 and #3 doubles. Interestingly, Domijian and Styslinger dropped their match at #1 doubles by an 8-6 margin as well.

Justin Shane quickly doubled the Cavalier lead by winning 2 & 2 at #6 singles. He was following quickly by Thai-Son Kwiatkowski who also won 2 & 2 at #5 singles to bring the Virginia lead to 3-0.

Notre Dame attempted to make it interesting, by beating Mac Styslinger 2 & 5 at #3 singles. But much like the women yesterday, that was the all the scoring they would get.

Minutes later, Mitchell Frank won 3 & 2 at #2 singles to clinch the win for the Cavaliers.

Up next is #5 seed Baylor, who beat #12 Illinois 4-0 in a match that ran concurrently with Virginia's match. That quarterfinals match will be Sunday at noon.
