Eric Quigley is looking to cap one of the most decorated careers in Kentucky men's tennis history with a banner senior year. On Tuesday afternoon, Quigley got his senior spring season off to a record-setting start.

In seventh-ranked UK's first dual match of 2012 against No. 29 Indiana, Quigley defeated Josh MacTaggart 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 for the 144th win of his collegiate career. The victory sent him into a tie for first place with Paul Varga on UK's all-time singles win list. His victory helped propel his team to a victory over IU at the Hilary J. Boone Tennis Complex.

He won't have to wait long for a chance to take sole possession of the singles win crown, as Quigley and the Wildcats will host Eastern Kentucky in the second-half of a double header beginning at 7 p.m. on Tuesday at the Boone Tennis Complex.

UPDATE: Quigley defeated Niklas Schroeder of EKU 6-1, 6-4 for his 145th career win. Congratulations to Eric Quigley, UK's all-time winningest men's tennis player!

Here is the complete release on Quigley's record-breaking wins.
