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.
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.
