WTennis Earns No. 2 Seed in ACC Championship
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Just hours after the 15th-ranked Miami Hurricanes women’s tennis team defeated No. 9 Virginia to earn a share of the ACC regular season title, the conference released the ACC Women’s Championship bracket.
Miami (18-4, 12-2 ACC) earned the No. 2 seed and a double bye to start the tournament. The Hurricanes will play their first match in the quarterfinals on Friday at noon.
The Hurricanes finished in a four-way tie atop the ACC with North Carolina, Clemson and Virginia. Each team’s record against the four teams tied for first determined the seeding. Miami and North Carolina both went 2-1 against the four, and since the Tar Heels won the head to head matchup on April 5, they were awarded the top seed. With Clemson and Virginia each going 1-2 against the group of four, Virginia earned the nod for the 3-seed because of its head to head win against the Tigers.
Miami has three possible first round opponents: 15-seed Pitt, 10-seed Boston College and 7-seed Notre Dame. The winner of the first round matchup on Wednesday between Pitt and Boston College will advance to play the Irish in the second round. The second round match to determine Miami’s opponent will be played on Thursday at noon.
