The No. 10 Virginia women’s tennis team continued to experience success against nationally-ranked opponents, taking a 7-0 victory over No. 23 Syracuse on Friday afternoon at the Snyder Tennis Center.

It was the seventh win over a nationally-ranked opponent this season for Virginia (10-4, 4-2 ACC) through the first 14 matches of the season. The Cavaliers have faced 11 nationally-ranked foes so far this season.

Virginia claimed the doubles point behind the power of 6-1 wins on courts one and two as both nationally-ranked doubles pairings made quick work of their opponents to put the Cavaliers on top 1-0 in the dual score.

The Cavaliers then got straight-set victories on five courts, including a 6-0, 6-0 victory at three singles from sophomore Amber O’Dell and a 6-1, 6-2 win at the top of the lineup from freshman Natasha Subhash, who is ranked No. 10 nationally. Sophomore Sofia Munera clinched the match victory with her 6-3, 6-4 victory at four singles before Virginia would complete the sweep of the Orange (8-4, 3-2).
