ATLANTA – The Yellow Jackets’ women’s tennis team, coming off its second loss of the 2005 dual-match season, will travel to Clemson Thursday to face the 18th-ranked Tigers at 2:30 p.m. at the Clemson Indoor Tennis Center. Georgia Tech enters the match with a 5-2 record on the year while the Tigers stand at 5-5 this dual-match season.

The Yellow Jackets maintained their No. 23 ranking in this week’s polls after falling to 18th-ranked Harvard, 5-2, and the sixth-ranked Commodores of Vanderbilt, 7-0 in the last two matches. Rookie Kristi Miller stands at No. 20 in the singles rankings this week and teams with sophomore Alison Silverio to form the nation’s 11th-ranked duo.

The Tigers’ losses of the season all came to teams ranked in the top-26, according to the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), including No. 3 Georgia, No. 7 Kentucky, No. 14 TCU, No. 25 Baylor and No. 26 William & Mary.
