CLEMSON, SC – The 12th-ranked Clemson women’s tennis team will take to the road this weekend for a pair of conference matches. The Tigers (12-5, 4-1 ACC) will face NC State (4-11, 1-4 ACC) on Saturday at the J.W. Isenhour Tennis Complex in Raleigh, NC. The match is scheduled to begin at 12:00 pm. Clemson will then take on Wake Forest (12-4, 3-1 ACC) at 12:00 pm on Sunday at Leighton Stadium in Winston-Salem, NC.
