Virginia is No. 4 Seed for ACC Women's Tennis Tournament
CHARLOTTESVILLE – The No. 11 Virginia women’s tennis team is the fourth seed at the 2011 ACC Women’s Tennis Championship, being held this weekend at the Cary Tennis Park in Cary, N.C. After a first-round bye, the Cavaliers (18-6, 7-4 ACC) will meet either Florida State or Wake Forest in the quarterfinals on Friday at noon.
Fifth-seeded Florida State and 12th-seeded Wake Forest meet in the first round on Thursday, with the winner meeting the Cavaliers in the quarterfinals on Friday. Virginia won the regular season meeting with the Seminoles 5-2 on March 27 at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. The Cavaliers won both earlier meetings with the Demon Deacons this season, winning 5-2 in Winston-Salem on Jan. 29 and 6-1 on April 9 at the Snyder Tennis Center.
Virginia has tied the school record for wins in a season with 18, matching the mark set in 1994. The Cavaliers set a new school record with seven conference wins and their No. 4 seed at the ACC Tournament is their highest since 1994.
Last week the Cavaliers posted the two highest ranked road wins in program history. Virginia won 4-3 at No. 12 Clemson on Saturday and defeated No. 13 Georgia Tech 6-1 on Sunday. Virginia enters the ACC Tournament on a four-match winning streak.
