CLEMSON, SC – The 21st-ranked Clemson women’s tennis team will wrap up the 2008 regular season this weekend with a pair of home matches. The Tigers (10-9, 6-3 ACC) will take on Maryland (3-15, 0-9 ACC) at 11:00 am on an action-packed Saturday. Boston College (9-9, 1-8 ACC) will then be in town on Sunday for a 12:00 pm finale.

Clemson will be playing for a first-round bye in the upcoming ACC Tournament. The Tigers are currently in fourth place in the standings with the top four teams earning the extra day of rest.

Sophomore Ani Mijacika and senior Carol Salge are each riding an eight-match singles winning streak, while teaming for seven straight wins in doubles action. Mijacika boasts the nation’s #2 singles ranking with a 25-5 overall record and Salge is currently listed 85th with a 12-10 ledger. The Clemson duo is ranked at #8 in the doubles poll with an 11-2 record in dual matches, including six victories over ranked opponents.
