TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - After climbing six spots in the ITA polls this week, the No. 20-ranked Florida State women's tennis team heads north to play Boston College at 5 p.m. on Friday before taking on Maryland at 11 a.m. on Sunday.
"We have three more weekends of the regular season left," head coach Jennifer Hyde said. "Every match matters. We need to continue to improve this weekend and be ready for another round of tough ACC competition."
The Seminoles take an 11-4 (3-2 ACC) record to Chestnut Hill, Mass. after defeating Wake Forest and NC State. The Eagles are 7-5 (1-4 ACC) while the Terrapins are 5-9 (0-4 ACC).
Both Maryland and Boston College are unranked as a team. They do not field any ranked singles or doubles pairs. Florida State enters two singles players in the matches with sophomore Daneika Borthwick (No. 31) and senior Francesca Segarelli (No. 109).
Senior Amy Sargeant leads the team with a record of 22-5 in singles this year. Last weekend, Sargeant along with junior Kerrie Cartwright snatched a pair of singles wins. Since joining the Seminoles in January, Cartwright is 9-1 to start her career.
Sargeant and sophomore Mia Vriens have stepped up their doubles play, winning seven of their last nine matches. During the stretch of 7-2, four of those wins have been dominating 8-1 victories.
Florida State leads the all-time series over both teams. The Seminoles are 7-0 against the Eagles while holding the 18-3 advantage over the Terrapins.
