CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia posted its second top-10 win of the weekend, downing No. 6 Notre Dame 6-1 on Sunday. The Cavaliers (8-1, 2-0 ACC) recorded their 109th consecutive victory against ACC competition, while the Fighting Irish (11-4, 1-1 ACC) suffered its first conference loss in its debut season in the ACC.

The 10th-ranked Cavaliers opened the match strong, winning the doubles point.
