CAVALIERS IN THE RANKINGS
The Cavaliers sit just outside the top 25 of the team rankings, coming in at No. 26 in the latest Oracle/ITA 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. 7 in the ITA Women’s Doubles rankings. In singles, the Cavaliers also have one player make an appearance with Johanson ranked No. 72 nationally.
A LOOK AT LOUISVILLE
Louisville (12-2, 2-1 ACC) enters the weekend as the No. 49 team in the latest Oracle/ITA Rankings. The Cardinals have a pair of wins in conference play of Notre Dame and Pittsburgh, but are coming off a loss on the road at No. 3 Georgia Tech two weeks ago. Louisville does not have any players ranked nationally in singles or doubles. The only other loss for the Cardinals came in a 4-3 loss to Tulsa in non-conference action.
A LOOK AT NOTRE DAME
Notre Dame (9-3, 1-1 ACC) enters the weekend with a home match against Virginia Tech on Friday. The Irish have defeated Pittsburgh in ACC action, but dropped their meeting with Louisville. Notre Dame is riding a three-match win streak after defeating Purdue on the road and then picking up wins over Minnesota and Florida Gulf Coast in a tournament at FGCU last weekend. Notre Dame does not have any nationally-ranked players in singles or doubles.
UP NEXT FOR THE HOOS
Virginia will return home for a pair of ACC matches next weekend, hosting No. 31 Miami and Pittsburgh. The Cavaliers will face the Hurricanes at 3 p.m. on Friday (March 23) and the Panthers at noon on Sunday (March 25). Both matches are slated for the Snyder Tennis Center.
