CLEMSON, SC – The 12th-ranked Clemson women’s tennis team will play host to No. 39 Boston College (7-8, 2-3 ACC) on Saturday at 11:00 am and No. 28 Maryland (11-4, 1-4 ACC) at noon on Sunday at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center. The Tigers (15-5, 3-2 ACC) will look to extend their five-match winning streak, all five of which came on the road.

Clemson holds a 5-0 all-time mark against the Eagles and a 28-3 advantage over the Terrapins.

Josipa Bek, who moved up to 10th in the most recent ITA singles rankings, leads Clemson in the singles lineup. Bek is the reigning ACC Player of the week, and all three of her losses in dual match play have been at the hands of top ten opponents. She is looking for her 90th career win, which would move her into a three-way tie for eighth on Clemson’s all-time wins list.

She puts her 15-3 singles mark to the test against one of the nation’s hottest players on Sunday in Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar, who is 14-0 in the top spot.

Bek teams with Daniela Alvarez on the all-time doubles wins list. She is 84-33 overall in doubles and 89-31 in singles.

Wong moved up to No. 51 in the national rankings after knocking off then-No. 24 Sanaa Bhambri of NC State on Mar. 27. Klara Vyskocilova also moved up to 100th nationally, a career-best mark for the freshman who boasts a 17-5 overall mark and a 13-3 record in dual match play.

After this pair of matches, Clemson will have one of the toughest weeks of the season as they welcome No. 9 Baylor on Wednesday before hitting the road to play No. 4 Duke and No. 3 North Carolina on April 9 and 10.
