Box Score

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — University of Notre Dame men’s tennis senior Quentin Monaghan continued his recent streak of wins over top-ranked singles opponents Friday, but the Irish fell to No. 2 Virginia 6-1 in an Atlantic Coast Conference match at the Snyder Tennis Center.

The 33rd-ranked Monaghan upended No. 8 Ryan Shane 6-7, 7-5, 1-0 in the final decision of the day, recreating a similar outcome from when the teams met a year ago. The win gave Monaghan his third straight against an opponent ranked within the Oracle/ITA top 30, and his first against a top 10 opponent this season.

Elsewhere, the Irish (10-9, 4-3 ACC) struggled. The Cavaliers (15-2, 5-0 ACC) won the doubles point as No. 2 Luca Corintelli and Shane defeated No. 14 Monaghan and senior Alex Lawson 6-2 on Court 1, while Collin Altimirano and J.C. Aragon bested junior Eddy Covalschi and senior Kenneth Sabacinski 6-4.

Virginia’s loaded singles lineup then quickly provided the clinching decisions, winning in straight sets in the bottom five slots in the lineup. No. 63 Altimirano defeated Covalschi 6-4, 6-2 at No. 2, while No. 7 Thai-Son Kwiatkowski beat junior Josh Hagar 6-3, 6-4 on Court 3. Lawson dropped a tight match to No. 88 Aragone 7-6, 6-4 on Court 4; freshman Grayson Broadus fell to Henrik Wiersholm 6-4, 6-3 on Court 5; and Sabacinski lost to Mac Styslinger 6-4, 6-4 on Court 6.


 

 

The Irish will return to action at 2 p.m. ET Sunday when they take on Georgia Tech at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex in Atlanta, Georgia.
