Charlottesville, Va. – The UVa men’s tennis team continued its winning ways, as they shut out James Madison on Thursday afternoon, at the Sheridan Snyder Tennis Center. The Cavaliers improve to 8-3 on the season.

“I thought our guys continued to fight hard, and I was real impressed with the overall effort once again,” head coach Brian Boland said. “I thought Michael Duquette had a big win for us. We still have a big weekend ahead of us, but this was a good win for us.”

Duquette defeated Andrew Lux at No. 1 singles, 4-6, 6-0, 6-3. Duquette has now won five of his six matches at No. 1 singles this season, and improves to 13-9 on the year.

Duquette and Nolen also won at No. 1 doubles, defeating Lux and Craig Anderson, 8-1. Romesburg teamed with Jonathan Chou at No. 2 doubles, to defeat Hendrickson and Kuehr, 9-7. Duquette and Nolen improve to 8-6, while Romesburg and Chou have won six of their seven matches at No. 2 doubles this season.

Greg Alpert won his tenth match of the season, competing at No. 4 singles and defeating Anderson, 6-4, 6-4. Alpert is 2-0 at No. 4 singles, and has won four of his last five overall.
