Tennis: Wake Falls to Powerhouse Virginia, 4-2

Noah Rubin and Romain Bogaerts win, but Virginia's depth is too much for Wake.

Wake Forest's top of the lineup is as good as any in the nation, but their depth proved costly in the ACC Championship against No. 5 Virginia. The Cavaliers clinched their record ninth straight ACC Championship, and 11th in 12 years, 4-2.

At first singles, No. 13 Noah Rubin defeated No. 7 Ryan Shane 7-6 (5), 6-3. Meanwhile, No. 15 Romain Bogaerts beat No. 93 Collin Altamirano 6-3, 6-4. However, the Cavaliers won third, fourth and fifth singles in straight sets and the doubles point for another ACC Championship.

The loss snaps a nine match winning streak for the Demon Deacons. No. 11 Wake Forest likely will host NCAA First and Second Round Matches in Winston-Salem.
