The team of Jennifer Stevens (Miami, Fla.) and Hana Tomljanovic (Boca Raton, Fla.) is a season-high No. 38 in doubles, while the team of Hardenbergh and Erin Vierra (Norwell, Mass.) is No. 50.
Georgia Tech comes to Charlottesville with a 13-8 overall record and a 4-4 mark in the ACC. The Yellow Jackets are led by Irini Falconi, the nation’s No. 1 ranked singles player. Clemson enters the weekend with a 19-4 overall record and a 7-2 mark in the ACC. The Tigers have four ranked singles players, headlined by No. 19 Josipa Bek.
