Women’s Tennis Announces 2006-07 Schedule

Sept. 7, 2006

CLEMSON, SC – Nancy Harris, head coach of the Clemson women’s tennis team, has announced her squad’s 2006-07 competition schedule. The Tigers will participate in seven tournaments during the fall season before beginning their spring schedule. Of Clemson’s 20 dual-match opponents, 14 earned bids to the NCAA Tournament last year, while five advanced to the round of 16.

Highlighting the fall will be the Miami Invitational, hosted by the 2006 national runner-up Hurricanes, in Coral Gables, FL. The event, held from Nov. 10-12, will conclude the fall season. The first tournament on the slate for the Tigers is the Thomasville Collegiate Invitational in Thomasville, GA from Sept. 15-17. Clemson will then participate in the annual Furman Fall Classic in Greenville, SC from Sept. 29-Oct. 1.

The Riviera/ITA All-American Championships will be held from Oct. 5-8 in Pacific Palisades, CA with the ITA Southeast Regional taking place the next weekend on the University of North Carolina’s campus in Chapel Hill, NC. The Tigers will then play host to Auburn-Montgomery at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center on Oct. 20-22, in Clemson’s first home fall event since 2002. In addition to the Miami tournament in November, the Tigers will also have a chance to advance to the ITA National Indoor Individual Championships, held in Ann Arbor, MI from Nov. 2-5.

Clemson will begin the spring schedule at home on Jan. 27 against the College of Charleston, marking the second straight year the Tigers will face the Cougars in their first match of the season. Clemson will then play host to South Florida on Jan. 28 and Harvard on Feb. 3 before traveling to Virginia Commonwealth and Furman for early season matches. The Tigers will return to the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center on Feb. 17 for four straight home matches, beginning with South Alabama.

Clemson will face SEC foe Georgia on Feb. 21, the 37th meeting in history between the schools, and will then meet in-state rival South Carolina on Feb. 25.

The final contest in the four-match stretch will be the Tigers’ ACC opener against defending league champion Georgia Tech on Mar. 3. The always tough conference schedule will be especially difficult this season as nine teams, including Clemson, were selected to the 2006 NCAA Tournament.

The Tigers will face Boston College and Maryland on the road on Mar.9 and 11, respectively, and will have a non-conference match-up against Troy University in Charleston, SC on Mar. 18. Clemson will then play Florida State, Miami, Duke and North Carolina at home in late March and early April. The Tigers will travel to NC State, Wake Forest, Virginia and Virginia Tech for matches in the final two weekends of the regular season.

The 2007 ACC Championships will be held in Raleigh, NC from Apr. 19-22, while this year’s NCAA Regionals will take place on various campus sites from May 11-13 and the NCAA Championships will return to Athens, GA this season at the end of May
