THE FLATS – No. 11 Georgia Tech women’s tennis returns to the courts this weekend for a pair of ACC contests. The Yellow Jackets welcome No. 9 Virginia to the Ken Byers Tennis Complex on Friday at 4 p.m. before visiting Boston College on Sunday for a 10 a.m. first serve.
THE SCENE: The Yellow Jackets (10-5, 0-1 ACC) opened ACC play last weekend hosting Miami, falling to the Hurricanes, 5-2. Nami Otsuka went undefeated in the match, collecting both a doubles and singles victory for the Jackets. Last Sunday, Tech played a non-conference tilt at Northwestern, pocketing a 4-2 win, despite dropping the doubles point. Victoria Flores and Kenya Jones each own seven singles wins on the dual season and lead the Jackets in doubles action with a 10-1 record.
Virginia (7-2, 1-0 ACC) comes into Friday’s match winners of two-straight, having defeated No. 12 Michigan, 4-1, last weekend. The Cavaliers opened ACC play with a 5-2 victory at Boston College. The Cavaliers are paced by freshman Natasha Subhash who leads the team from the No. 1 singles spot and is 6-3. Virginia has opened the season playing six top-25 foes through its first nine matches and gone 4-2.
Boston College (8-2, 0-2 ACC) took a break from ACC play, most recently, to visit Cornell last weekend and collect a 6-1 decision. The Eagles have already played two league matches on the young season, falling to Virginia and Syracuse. BC opened the spring campaign with a 7-0 record. The Jackets and Eagles will meet at the Manchester Athletic Club in Manchester by the Sea on Sunday.
