CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 13 Virginia women's tennis team returns to action with a pair of ACC matches against No. 1 Duke and No. 62 Boston College this weekend.
Virginia (5-2) hosts Duke Friday (Feb. 21) at 3:30 p.m. at the Boyd Tinsley Courts at Boar's Head Sports Club. The Cavaliers will travel to Boston College Sunday (Feb. 23) for an 11 a.m. match against the Eagles at the BC Flynn Athletics Complex.

Virginia is 16-0 all-time vs. Boston College (7-0). The Cavaliers posted a 6-1 win against the Eagles in Charlottesville last season.
The Cavaliers are led by sophomore Julia Elbaba (Oyster Bay, N.Y.), who owns school records in the latest ITA singles (No. 4) and doubles (No. 3) rankings. Elbaba is 18-2 in singles and 20-4 in doubles with freshman Rachel Pierson (Princeton, N.J.).
