Top-Ranked Cavaliers Set For Outdoor Opener

CHARLOTTESVILLE – The top-ranked Virginia men’s tennis team will begin the outdoor portion of its schedule this weekend as it hosts three matches at the Snyder Tennis Center. The Cavaliers will host Old Dominion and Georgetown in a doubleheader on Friday before welcoming No. 4 Texas for a match at noon on Sunday.

Friday’s doubleheader will begin at noon with the Old Dominion match. The Georgetown match will follow at 3 p.m., as the start was moved up an hour from the original schedule. The forecast for Friday calls for highs in the 40s, but the coaches have agreed to play the matches outdoors as long as the temperatures are above freezing.

Sunday’s match against No. 4 Texas marks the highest ranked opponent to visit Charlottesville for a non-tournament match during the Brian Boland era. It is the second visit to Virginia in three weeks for the Longhorns, who reached the semifinals of the ITA National Team Indoor Championships last month at the Boar’s Head Sports Club. 

Admission for all home Virginia tennis matches is free and livestats will be available on VirginiaSports.com.
