CHARLOTTESVILLE – The top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team played a tripleheader Saturday at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at the Boar’s Head Sports Club, winning all three matches to extend its home winning streak to 59 matches. The Cavaliers downed Wofford, Liberty and Longwood all by 7-0 scores.

In all three contests, the Cavaliers (14-1, 2-0 ACC) won the doubles point, losing just one match in the process. Virginia used five different doubles combinations on the day, including the team Philippe Oudshoorn (Apeldoorn, The Netherlands) and Steven Eelkman Rooda (Amersfoort, The Netherlands), who posted doubles wins in all three matches.

In singles, Virginia won every match in straight sets as 10 different Cavaliers saw action. Oudshoorn and Santiago Villegas (Bogota, Colombia) both won three singles matches on the day, while Houston Barrick (Brentwood, Tenn.), Rooda, Julen Uriguen (Guatemala City, Guatemala) and Milo Johnson (Tulsa, Okla.) each won twice. Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.), Lee Singer (Laguna Niguel, Calif.), Brian Fang (Hacienda Heights, Calif.) and Dino Dell’Orto (Hong Kong, China) also recorded a win for Virginia.

“Our first years, Julen, Dino and Brian, really stepped up and led the way today,” said head coach Brian Boland. “Every day in practice they show a great work ethic, a desire to develop, a passion for this program and a willingness to do what it takes to make our program better. Today was a great day and a tremendous reward for them for all their hard work.”

The Cavaliers will return to action on Friday, March 5, when they host a doubleheader against Georgetown and Old Dominion.
