Georgia Tech (12-8, 7-4 ACC) looks to return to winning ways and conclude the regular season on a winning streak heading into the ACC Tournament. The Yellow Jackets closed out road play last weekend, facing a pair of top-10 programs, falling at No. 10 Duke and No. 1 North Carolina. The Yellow Jackets currently sit in sixth-place in the ACC standings with the final two regular season matches set for this weekend.

Virginia Tech (6-14, 2-9 ACC) heads into the weekend looking to snap a three-match skid. The Hokies have been victorious over Louisville and Syracuse in league play. Erika Cheng owns a team-high nine dual singles wins, mainly coming at the No. 4 and 5 positions. The doubles pairing of Annie Clark and Katie Andreini hold down the top position with six match wins this season.

No. 8 Virginia (16-4, 8-3 ACC) is currently in a three-way tie for third place in the ACC heading into the final weekend of regular season play. The Cavaliers have won five-straight, most recently coming off a 4-3 win over No. 3 NC State, marking the second victory over a top-three opponent this season. Boasting the nation’s top-ranked singles player, Emma Navarro leads the Cavaliers in singles action with a 15-1 record at the top position.
