TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The No. 16-ranked Florida State women’s tennis team travels to Atlanta to continue ACC play against No.32 Georgia Tech on Sunday at 12 p.m. at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex.
“We expect a good battle with Georgia Tech tomorrow,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “Every ACC match this year will give us an opportunity to test ourselves, and we have to be ready to leave it all out there.”
The Seminoles are 8-3 on the year and 1-1 in conference play after dropping their last two matches to No. 23 Clemson and No. 5 Florida.
Georgia Tech boasts a record of 5-5 and a 0-2 showing in the ACC after losing 6-1 to No. 13 Miami today.
Georgia Tech fields two ranked singles players with Elizabeth Kilborn (No.63) followed by Kendall Woodard (No 104). The Seminoles will counter with three ranked players in sophomore Daneika Borthwick (No.37), senior Francesca Segarelli (No.72) and sophomore Mia Vriens (No. 118).
Florida State holds the series lead with an 18-10 record all-time, however Georgia Tech has won eight of the last 11 meetings. The last time the Seminoles defeated the Yellow Jackets was behind a 5-2 decision in 2011.
“We are excited to be in Atlanta to start off our spring break trip,” head coach Jennifer Hyde said. “This is another opportunity to for us to continue our success on the road. So far, we’ve been solid away from home this season.”
The Seminoles will look to improve upon their 4-1 road record tomorrow before heading out to Las Vegas for a match against UNLV on March 13. For more information, please check back to Seminoles.com, Twitter and Facebook.
