NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Vanderbilt women’s tennis team will travel to Furman to compete in the 33rd annual Debbie Southern Fall Classic on Friday.

“We are very excited to be playing in the Debbie Southern Fall Classic again. This is one of the strongest fields in college tennis with some of the best players in the country competing this weekend here in Greenville.
