CAVALIERS IN THE RANKINGS
The Cavaliers moved into the top 25 of the team rankings this week after posting an upset over No. 14 Michigan last weekend. Virginia is ranked No. 23 in the latest Oracle/ITA Women’s Tennis rankings, marking the first time in the top 25 since the season opener last season, a win over Boston College.
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. 67 nationally.
A LOOK AT RICHMOND
The Spiders enter Friday’s contest coming off the first win of the season, a 7-0 victory over George Mason last weekend to start A-10 competition. Richmond is 1-2 on the year with losses at the hands of then No. 5 North Carolina and Old Dominion. All three matches have been sweeps with Richmond falling 7-0 to both the Tar Heels and Monarchs, but posting the 7-0 win over the Patriots.
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 at the Boar’s Head Sports Club will be limited throughout the season.
UP NEXT FOR THE HOOS
