The Georgia Tech men’s tennis team will begin Atlantic Coast Conference play Wednesday with a 2:30 p.m. matchup against Clemson at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center in Clemson, S.C.

“We have played some good matches this year and we have definitely improved as a team,” head coach Kenny Thorne said. “The start of the ACC season at Clemson will be a good opportunity to get our conference season off to a good start.”

The Jackets (4-4) will look to end match a two-match losing streak after falling at home to No. 2 Georgia last Friday. Despite going 1-3 in its last four matches, Tech has faced three-opponents in the current top-25 national rankings including two of the nation’s top-10 (No. 2 Georgia and No. 10 Baylor).

The young Tech team will attempt to build on last season’s 3-8 conference record.

Clemson holds a 26-15 advantage over Tech in the all-time series, but Tech has won the last two meetings by identical 4-3 scores.

After Clemson, the brutal conference slate gets even tougher as the Jackets face No. 24 Miami, No. 16 Florida State, No. 30 Wake Forest and No. 31 Virginia Tech before a match at No. 1 Virginia.

“Our guys are winners and will need to dig deep during the ACC season because every team is very good,” Thorne added.
