ORLANDO, FL. (CBS19 SPORTS)-- After falling to Ohio State twice this year, the Cavaliers swept the Buckeyes 4-0 to claim their second consecutive national championship. UVA has now won 6 NCAA titles in the last 11 years. 

"I told the guys this one feels more special," started UVA junior Chris Rodesch, "Just because we had so many struggles in the team just like every individual had some struggles and it's really emotional."

The Cavaliers came into the contest riding a 21 match win streak. Their last lost back in February came at the hands of the Buckeyes themselves, but today the 'Hoos dominated from the start. After winning the doubles point, Jeffrey von der Schulenburg extended the lead winning in straight sets 6-2, 6-1 over JJ Tracy on court 3. On court one, Chris Rodesch made it a one point game as he took down the no. 24 ranked player Justin Boulais 6-4, 6-2. UVA male athlete of the year Iñaki Montes clinched the victory 6-4, 6-2 over Cannon Kingsley.

"It hit me differently. This one I think this one was more special than last years, especially more on a personal level," said UVA junior Iñaki Montes, "I struggled a lot throughout the season maybe my results also show that and it was just not my best semester but I'm proud of myself, how I reacted and came out for May."


"The players are really special, really special," explained UVA men's tennis head coach Andres Pedroso, "It was a tough semester, we went through a lot and they just hung in there and trusted us. They're just such a pleasure to coach, so all the credit to the guys."

UVA finishes the season undefeated in outdoor matches with a 30-4 record. This title goes down as the school's 33rd NCAA national championship.
