CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The No. 29 Virginia women’s tennis team (7-6, 5-1 ACC) continues competition on the road in the ACC on Sunday, traveling to face No. 4 North Carolina (19-1, 6-0 ACC) in a 1 p.m. match at the Cone-Kenfield Tennis Center.

Virginia is coming off its first loss in ACC play, falling at No. 17 Duke on Friday afternoon, while North Carolina is coming off a win over Virginia Tech.

It’s the third consecutive road match for the Cavaliers and part of a stretch that sees Virginia play 8-of-9 contests on the road. Fans can follow the action through live stats linked at VirginiaSports.com.

Virginia is led by two players in the latest ITA women’s singles rankings with freshman Rosie Johanson (Abbotsford, British Columbia) ranked No. 44, while junior Cassie Mercer (Huntington, W.V.) is ranked No. 94. The Cavaliers have the No. 29 doubles team with the pairing of Mercer and freshman Chloe Gullickson (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.).

North Carolina has five players ranked in the singles rankings, including No. 2 Hayley Carter, No. 9 Sara Daavettila, No. 23 Jessie Aney, No. 40 Alexa Graham and No. 77 Makenna Jones. The Tar Heels also boast the top-ranked doubles team in the pairing of Aney and Carter.

Following the Sunday match at North Carolina, the Cavaliers will return home for the only home match in the nine-match stretch next Friday (March 31) against Wake Forest at 3:30 p.m.
