CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The No. 16 Virginia women's tennis team returns to action this weekend at No. 29 Ole Miss and No. 39 Memphis.
The Cavaliers battle the Rebels (2-3) on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Palmer/Salloum Tennis Center at 1 p.m. ET. Virginia plays Memphis (5-2) on Sunday, Feb. 24 at The University Club at 11 a.m.
Virginia returns to action after dropping consecutive matches to No. 4 USC, No. 16 Michigan and No. 13 Texas A&M at the ITA National Indoor Championships in Charlottesville on Feb. 8-10.
"These two matches provide many great opportunities for our team," Virginia head coach Mark Guilbeau said. "We will compete outdoors for the first time in the dual match season on Saturday against Ole Miss and then turn around and play indoors against Memphis on Sunday. It will test our ability to adjust and play smartly under different conditions, something every good team must do on many occasions throughout the season. Both matches are against quality teams and will clearly define the areas we have improved in our games since the National Indoors. I am confident the team will show incredible excitement to compete and a strong focus to play well. We are all looking forward to being back out there competing hard together."
Freshman Julia Elbaba (Oyster Bay, N.Y.) is ranked No. 11 in singles, while freshman Stephanie Nauta (Galveston, Texas) is ranked No. 46 and junior Li Xi (Kunming, China) is ranked No. 92. Elbaba leads Virginia with a 17-4 singles mark, while Nauta is 15-4. Senior co-captain Erin Vierra (Norwell, Mass.) and freshman Maci Epstein (Winter Park, Fla.) are ranked No. 5 in doubles with a 14-5 record, while No. 17 Xi and Nauta are 13-11.
Junior Caroline Rohde-Moe, who is ranked No. 27 in singles with an 18-7 record, leads Ole Miss. Rohde-Moe and freshman Marija Milutinovicare are ranked No. 39 in doubles with an 11-5 record.
Senior Courtney Collins, who is ranked No. 61 in singles and No. 35 in doubles with senior Kelly Gray, leads Memphis. Junior Stefanie Mikesz and freshman Caroline Wegner are ranked No. 47 in doubles.
