Virginia ties record with 116th ACC win in a row

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -- Virginia tied the longest conference win streak in ACC history with a 6-1 victory against No. 32 NC State on Friday afternoon at the Snyder Tennis Center. The victory was the Cavaliers' 116th consecutive win against ACC opposition (regular season and postseason), tying the conference's all-time all-sport record set by the Duke women's tennis team from 1989-2000.

The victory was the ninth in a row for the Cavaliers, who improved to 18-2 overall and 9-0 in the ACC. The Wolfpack fell to 14-8 (3-6 ACC) with the loss.

The match was part of the USTA College Match Day series, which caused singles to be played first. Virginia quickly took the lead as Mac Styslinger cruised to a 6-1, 6-2 victory against Thomas Weigel at No. 4 singles. Alex Domijan followed with a 6-3, 6-1 win at No. 1 versus Robbie Mudge. The lead was extended to 3-0 with Mitchell Frank's 7-6(4), 6-2 win at No. 2 against Austin Powell. The Wolfpack got on the board with Ian Dempster's 7-5, 6-3 win versus Justin Shane at No. 6 singles.

Virginia clinched the match as Ryan Shane rallied for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-4 against Simon Norenius at No. 3 singles. Thai-Son Kwiatkowski closed out singles play with a 7-5, 7-5 win at No. 6 versus Nick Horton to make the score 5-1.

Even though the dual match had been decided in singles, the teams elected to play a full doubles point. The Cavaliers captured the point to make the final score 6-1 as Domijan and Harrison Richmond won at No. 2 and Styslinger teamed with Luca Corinteli for a win at the No. 1 position.
