CHARLOTTESVILLE – The fourth-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team concludes its home schedule with a pair of ACC matches this week at the Snyder Tennis Center. The Cavaliers host Georgia Tech Friday at 3 p.m. and No. 28 Louisville Sunday at 1 p.m.
Live scoring and video for the matches will be available on VirginiaSports.com. Admission to matches is free and fans can park for free at the Culbreth Garage.
Friday’s match against Georgia Tech will be Senior Day. The lone senior on the squad, All-American Mitchell Frank (Annandale, Va.), will be honored in between doubles and singles of the match against the Yellow Jackets.
Virginia (16-3, 8-0 ACC) stayed at No. 4 in this week’s ITA rankings after posting victories over William & Mary and No. 13 Virginia Tech last week. The Cavaliers have won 132 consecutive matches against ACC opponents, the longest streak in conference history in any sport. With a pair of victories this week, Virginia would clinch at least a share of its 12th-consecutive ACC regular-season title.
The Cavaliers lead all ACC schools with five players in the latest ITA singles rankings. Ryan Shane (Falls Church, Va.) is No. 3, Thai-Son Kwiatkowski (Charlotte, N.C.) is No. 14, Frank is No. 22, Collin Altamirano (Sacramento, Calif.) is No. 72 and Mac Styslinger (Birmingham, Ala.) is No. 124 in this week’s rankings. Shane and Luca Corinteli (Alexandria, Va.) moved up to a career-high No. 4 in the ITA doubles rankings.
The Yellow Jackets (11-8, 3-5 ACC) are looking to snap a four-match conference losing streak. Georgia Tech is led by freshman Christopher Eubanks, ranked No. 54 nationally.
The Cardinals (22-5, 6-3 ACC) begin their weekend road trip at Boston College on Friday before playing at Virginia on Sunday. Louisville is currently in fourth place in the ACC during its inaugural season in the league. The Cardinals are making their second trip to Charlottesville this season, having lost to the Cavaliers 5-0 in January during the ITA Kickoff Weekend. Louisville is led by Sebastian Stiefelmeyer, the nation’s eighth-ranked player.
The Cavaliers conclude their regular season schedule next week as they visit Florida State on April 17 and Miami on April 19.
