SCOUTING TECH – Coming off a pair of 6-1 conference wins last weekend, the Yellow Jackets look to extend their winning streak on Thursday in their final non-conference match of the season. Tech dropped the doubles point in both matchups, but rebounded by sweeping singles action. In the latest ITA rankings released Tuesday, Georgia Tech placed four in the national singles rankings and a doubles team, while climbing back into the top 25 nationally at No. 22. Freshman Alejandra Cruz collected her second ACC Rookie of the Week honor after pocketing three matches against Boston College and Syracuse.

SCOUTING UCF – The Knights come into Thursday’s matchup having split its last four matches, most recently falling 6-1 to No. 7 NC State. UCF has met three ACC opponents already this season, falling to Miami, Virginia and NC State. The Knights also make the trip to Clemson on Saturday for its fifth ACC matchup. Marie Mattel leads UCF from the No. 1 singles position and primarily the No. 1 doubles slot. In the latest national rankings, Mattel came in at No. 38 and is ranked No. 75 in doubles with Sophia Biolay. Georgia Tech leads the all-time series against UCF, 3-1, but have not met since 1997.
