The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team (6-8, 1-4 ACC) hosts No. 25 Wake Forest Friday at 2:30 p.m. and N.C. State Sunday at 1 p.m. in weekend conference action at the Bill Moore Tennis Center.
“Wake and N.C. State are both good teams and we have played many teams at their same level,” head coach Kenny Thorne said. “We are glad to be playing at home and hope that the home crowd turns out for these key ACC matches. They should be very exciting.”
The Jackets return home after a pair of tough losses to No. 21 Virginia Tech and No. 1 Virginia last weekend. Tech fell 4-3 to the Hokies, before a 6-1 loss to Virginia. Despite a 1-6 record on the road, the Jackets are 4-2 at home.
The Demon Deacons (12-6, 2-1 ACC) are coming off a 4-3 loss to No. 30 Duke on Wednesday. They currently have the No. 1 doubles pairing in Cory Parr and Steven Foreman. Parr is ranked No. 26 in singles.
N.C. State moved to 3-1 in ACC play, 9-7 overall with a 7-0 win over Maryland last Sunday. The Pack is led in singles by Jay Weinacker with an 11-4 record in dual match play. Weinacker and partner Jamie Pulgar lead the group in doubles with an 11-4 record as well.
Tech leads the all-time series over both Wake Forest (21-12) and N.C. State (23-9).
