Men's Tennis Ends Regular Season by Hosting Florida State & Miami
CHARLOTTESVILLE – The third-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team concludes the regular season this week with a pair of ACC matches at the Snyder Tennis Center. The Cavaliers host No. 29 Florida State on Friday at 3 p.m., and No. 63 Miami on Sunday at 11 a.m.
The Cavaliers (19-1, 9-0 ACC) enter the weekend on an 12-match win streak after road wins last week at Clemson and Georgia Tech. Virginia can clinch its ninth consecutive ACC regular season crown with one win this weekend and can complete its sixth straight undefeated ACC regular season with a pair of wins. With their next win, the Cavaliers will reach the 20-win mark for the 10th consecutive season.
Florida State (16-6, 7-2 ACC) is coming off its first two ACC losses of the season, falling at home to Duke and North Carolina last week. The Seminoles can secure a first-round bye in next week’s ACC Tournament with a win Friday against the Cavaliers or Sunday at Virginia Tech. Miami (8-10, 1-8 ACC) enters the week on a four-match losing streak. The Hurricanes visit Virginia Tech on Friday to start their road trip before coming to Charlottesville.
Sunday’s match against Miami will be Senior Day for the Virginia men’s tennis team. In between doubles and singles will be a ceremony to honor the five Cavaliers playing their final regular season home match: Drew Courtney (Clifton, Va.), Steven Eelkman Rooda (Amersfoort, The Netherlands), Reese Milner (Los Angeles, Calif.), Philippe Oudshoorn (Adeldoorn, The Netherlands) and Santiago Villegas (Bogota, Colombia).
There is free admission to all home Virginia tennis matches and free parking for fans is available at the Culbreth Parking Garage.
