ATLANTA – The Georgia Tech Women’s Tennis team (7-5, 0-1 ACC) will try and win its first Atlantic Coast Conference match of the season when it travels to No. 15 Florida State (6-6, 0-1) Wednesday. The match at the Scott Speicher Tennis Center is set for a 4:30 p.m. start.
The Yellow Jackets and Seminoles will meet for the 27th time in the history of the two programs, with Florida State holding a 17-9 advantage in the series. The two teams split last season’s meetings. Tech defeated the Seminoles, 5-2, in Atlanta but Florida State returned the favor with a 4-3 win in the second round of the ACC Tournament.
Tech is coming off a 6-1 victory over North Texas Sunday. The Jackets won the doubles point and took the top four singles matches, including top-ranked Irina Falconi’s 11th singles victory of the dual-match season.
Tech will return home to host a pair of Southeastern Conference foes this weekend with Georgia coming to the Bill Moore Tennis Center Saturday and Vanderbilt making a trip to Atlanta Sunday. Both weekend matches will begin at 1 p.m.
