Hurricanes Approaching

Vanderbilt set for second tilt with ACC foe

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The No. 13 Vanderbilt women’s tennis team will welcome the Miami Hurricanes to the Currey Tennis Center on Saturday.

In their last two times out, Vanderbilt split with Northwestern and second-ranked North Carolina, both of those matches away from campus. The Dores bested the Wildcats 5-2 and fell 7-0 to the Tar Heels.

Both the Dores and Hurricanes will enter Sunday’s action with 1-1 marks. Miami comes in with a 4-2 setback to No. 18 Texas A&M and a 4-0 triumph over UC Santa Barbara.

In the last meeting between the two teams, Vanderbilt swept Miami 4-0 in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Georgia Drummy, the No. 24 singles player in the country by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, will lead the Commodores. The sophomore from Ireland carries a 13-8 record on the year to pace the Vanderbilt team.

The Hurricanes’ Estela Perez-Somarriba, the third-ranked singles player in the country, will pose a major threat for the Commodores.

Not to be outdone, the Dores’ duo of Drummy and Christina Rosca are currently ranked as the eighth-best doubles pair in the country.

The action will start at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. Admission to the Currey Tennis Center is free and parking is available in the 25th Ave Garage.
