With a victory at No. 2 doubles with Tim Krebs Friday in a 7-0 victory over Boston College, senior Eric Hechtman recorded his 81st career doubles victory, placing him alongside former Hurricane John Eagleton as the University of Miami’s career doubles leader.

Hechtman, whose career doubles record now stands at 81-34, matches the record for total victories set by Eagleton, a former two-time UM All-American who posted an overall record of 81-10 from 1974-77.

The 7-0 victory over the Eagles (5-11, 0-4 ACC) marks second-year head coach Mario Rincon and the Hurricanes’ (11-2, 3-1 ACC) third-consecutive sweep over an opponent.

Hechtman and Krebs knocked off Boston College’s Alex Rastorgouen and Brian Hartness 8-1 at the No. 2 doubles spot to help the Hurricanes clinch the doubles points.

With a straight-set, 6-0, 6-0, victory over Sam Wagner at No. 4 doubles, Hechtman also improved his career singles record to 76-40, pushing him into seventh place all-time at UM.

Also in singles, Luigi D’Agord-ranked No. 7 nationally-downed Soma Kesthely 6-3, 7-6 at the No. 1 spot while Daniel Vallverdu knocked off Jason Sechrist 6-4, 6-1 at No. 2.

At the No. 3 position, Krebs defeated Rastorgouev 6-2, 6-1.

John Hoyes won his seventh straight singles match, defeating Michael Reiser 6-1, 6-1 and Vivek Subramanin improved his unbeaten streak to 7-0 at the No. 6 position with a 6-3, 6-4 over Dennis Reardon.

The seventh-ranked Hurricanes won four of six singles matches while sweeping all three doubles matches to knock off ACC rival No. 16 Wake Forest 5-2 Saturday afternoon at Leighton Tennis Stadium.

The win over the Demon Deacons (8-4, 1-2 ACC) gives Miami (13-3, 5-0 ACC) it’s 10th consecutive victory.

The Hurricanes opened the day by taking all three doubles matches.

On the No. 1 court, UM’s 10th-ranked tandem of Melissa Applebaum and Audra Cohen downed Wake Forest’s 20th-ranked duo of Alex Hirsch and Ashlee Davis 8-4. At the No. 2 spot, the Hurricanes’ 45th-ranked team of Audrey Banada and Monika Dancevic defeated Ana Jerman and Christian Tara 8-6 while Caren Seenauth and Patricia Starzyk upended Sierra Poske and Christine Simpson 8-3 at the No. 3 position.

In singles, UM’s Cohen, who is ranked No. 3 nationally, defeated No. 43 Hirsch 6-2, 6-1 at the No. 1 spot to improve to 19-0 this season.

Playing in the No. 2 position, Dancevic upset No. 64 Davis in straight sets 6-4, 6-4.

Eighty-third ranked Banada downed the Demon Deacon’s Jenna Loeb 6-0, 6-7, 6-4 in the No. 5 slot and Seenauth defeated Poske 6-4, 6-4.
