BLACKSBURG, Va. - The Virginia Tech women’s tennis team continues their 2013 campaign this weekend at the Burrows-Burleson Tennis Center. The Hokies open the weekend on Friday with a 3 p.m. match against Louisville and close out the weekend against Minnesota on Sunday at 10 a.m.

The Hokies enter the weekend with a 2-0 record as they beat Davidson, 7-0, and Navy, 6-1, on January 20. Tech has yet to lose a doubles match as they swept both Davidson and Navy.

Louisville enters the weekend with a 4-0 record as they make their first trip of the season. The last time the Hokies met the Cardinals, Tech claimed the victory, 6-1, in Blacksburg during the 2010 season.

Minnesota brings a 2-2 record to Blacksburg. Most recently, the Gophers fell to North Texas, 2-4, on January 27. However, Minnesota is ranked 41st in the most recent ITA rankings. The Gophers will face Louisville on Saturday before taking on the Hokies. Tech last met Minnesota last season in Minneapolis as the No. 71 Gophers won 7-0.
