Ani Mijacika leads the Tiger lineup as the nation’s top player. The junior standout boasts a 26-5 overall record for the fall and spring seasons combined and has won 17 matches over ranked opponents. Her two losses in dual matches came when she was suffering from an injury.

Saturday’s match against Maryland will be the 30th all-time and will have Clemson looking for its 11th straight victory over the Terps. The Tigers won last season’s match-up by a 6-1 margin at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center, while Maryland’s last win in the series was during the 1999 season.

Clemson and Boston College will be meeting for just the fourth time in history with all three prior matches coming since the Eagles joined the ACC for the 2006 season. The Tigers won all three of those contests for a 17-4 combined individual record against Boston College.
