CHARLOTTESVILLE - The No. 29 Virginia women's tennis team will open its home dual match schedule against No. 33 Purdue this Saturday at 12:30 p.m. at the Boyd Tinsley Courts. The start time is a change from the original scheduled noon start time.
The Cavaliers (6-2) began their season with a successful eight game road-trip and now will play eight of their final twelve matches in Charlottesville.
Veterans Lindsey Pereira (Arlington, Texas) and Caroline Hammond (Williamsburg, Va.) have both provided guidance to a team that features a majority of first-year players. Hammond has only one singles loss on the season and is now playing at the No. 1 doubles position with Lara Alexander (London, England).
Last weekend, the Cavaliers defeated Harvard, 4-3, and Brown, 7-0, to end their season-opening road trip. Maggie Yahner (Las Vegas, Nev.), Amanda Rales (Bethesda, Md.), Hammond, and Pereira all went unbeaten in singles play in both matches.
The Cavaliers open ACC play next weekend, where they travel to North Carolina on Friday and Duke on Saturday.
