The Cavaliers opened the season with five consecutive matches at home, posting a perfect 2-0 record in ACC matches with wins over Boston College and Syracuse. Virginia dropped all three non-conference matches, falling to Ole Miss and conference foe Wake Forest in a non-conference match at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend, before also dropping a non-conference contest with No. 21 South Carolina.
Penn enters the weekend contest after posting a win over Temple two weeks ago and have not seen action since. The Quakers dropped matches to Georgia Tech and Kentucky to open the season at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend event hosted by the Yellow Jackets. Penn has one player ranked in the latest Oracle/ITA Singles Rankings with senior Kana Daniel coming in at No. 108.
Old Dominion has a pair of players ranked in the latest singles rankings with Holly Hutchinson at No. 57 and Borislava Botusharova at No. 89.
