LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Georgia Tech women’s tennis team will be on the road this weekend, as it faces Louisville and No. 45 Notre Dame.

“We have a tough weekend on the road against two conference foes – Louisville and Notre Dame,” head coach Rodney Harmon said. “We will need to play well to have a successful weekend.”

Last weekend, the Jackets fell to Virginia Tech on Friday in Blacksburg by a score of 4-3, but were able to rebound with a 4-3 victory at then-No. 12 Virginia on Sunday in Charlottesville. Paige Hourigan led the way for the Jackets, going 2-0 in singles as well as 2-0 in doubles play. The highlight of her weekend came on Sunday, when she defeated then-No. 16 Julia Elbaba (6-1, 6-1). Hourigan jumped from No. 105 to No. 37 in the ITA singles rankings as a result.

Friday’s match against Louisville will begin at 3 p.m., and Sunday’s match against Notre Dame will begin at 12 p.m.
