CLEMSON, SC – The 15th-ranked Clemson women’s tennis (10-3, 3-0 ACC) team will begin a six-match streak away from home, traveling to face a pair of ACC newcomers this weekend. Clemson will square off with No. 31 Notre Dame on Friday at 4 pm before taking on Pittsburgh on Sunday at 10 am.
Clemson opened the ACC season with a bang, defeating its first three opponents by a combined score of 19-2 and look to keep the momentum going.
