CAVALIERS IN THE RANKINGS
Virginia features a doubles team in the national rankings as the pairing of Rosie Johanson (Abbotsford, British Columbia) and Meghan Kelley (Falmouth, Maine) is ranked No. 14 in the ITA Women’s Doubles rankings. In singles, the Cavaliers also have one player make an appearance with Johanson ranked No. 84 nationally.
A LOOK AT MICHIGAN
The Wolverines enter the match with a 4-3 record on the season. Michigan defeated Wisconsin in its last outing to close its stay at the ITA National Team Indoor Championship, but had dropped three straight matches against nationally-ranked opponents prior to the win over the Badgers. The three losses came at the hands of No. 9 Duke, at home before dropping matches with No. 7 Georgia Tech and No. 12 Auburn in the first two matches at the ITA National Indoors.
Michigan returns junior Brienne Minor, who won the 2017 NCAA Singles Championship. She is the first player in Michigan history, and the history of the Big 10, to win the NCAA Singles title.
PARKING LIMITED AT BOAR’S HEAD
Fans are encouraged to arrive early for Friday’s match. Due to a variety of factors, including construction as the facility is expanded, parking will be limited throughout the season.
PROMOTIONS FOR FRIDAY AGAINST MICHIGAN
