No. 10 Virginia shakes up doubles lineup but beats Notre Dame for second top-10 win of weekend

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. Virginia used three new doubles pairings for the match and found success, becoming just the second team to win the doubles point against the Irish this season. Alex Domijan teamed with Harrison Richmond for an 8-5 win at No. 3 against Ryan Bandy and Eric Schnurrenberger. The point was clinched at No. 1 where Luca Corinteli and Mac Styslinger upset 11th-ranked Greg Andrews and Alex Lawson 8-5.

Virginia opened singles play strong, winning five of the six first sets before rain reached the courts, forcing play to be moved indoors.
Shortly after moving inside, Domijan doubled the lead as he completed a 6-2, 6-1 win against Quentin Monaghan at No. 2 singles. Ryan Shane moved up to the No. 1 spot in the lineup and delivered a 6-3, 6-3 win versus 28th-ranked Andrews to extend the lead to 3-0. Notre Dame got on the scoreboard at No. 4 singles where Bandy topped Justin Shane 6-2, 6-3.

The Cavaliers clinched victory as J.C. Aragone, making his dual match debut, topped Wyatt McCoy 7-6(4), 6-4 at No. 6 singles to make the score 4-1. The final score became 6-1 as Thai-Son Kwiatkowski and Styslinger posted three-set wins at No. 5 and No. 3, respectively.
