COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The University of Maryland women's tennis team will face their first ACC opponent of the year on Tuesday as they travel to Tallahassee, Fla., to take on Florida State at 5 p.m. The Terps are looking to end a two-game losing streak with a win against the Seminoles.

Maryland is 8-4 on the season, with wins against non-conference opponents George Washington, Georgetown, Old Dominion, American, Richmond, West Virginia, Princeton and Virginia Tech. Florida State is 10-5 (0-1 ACC).

Last Time Out
The team last played on March 16, when they were defeated by No. 9 William and Mary, 6-1. Senior Marta Jedrzejak (Sieradz, Poland) came up with the lone singles victory, beating William and Mary's Kate Boomershine, 6-4, 6-2.

The Terps' last victory came on March 8 when they topped Virginia Tech, 4-3, in Blacksburg, Va. The team won four out of six singles matches, with freshmen Ramona But (Timisoara, Romania) and Jennifer Dent (Safety Harbor, Fla.), junior Emily Marker (Ann Arbor, Mich.) and Jedrzejak all earning victories.

Last Year Against FSU
Maryland won the match with the Seminoles in 2002, winning 4-3 in College Park. Jedrzejak clinched the decision game in that match, beating Florida State's Lauren Walker, 6-3, 6-4.

The doubles team of Delila Causevic and Emily Marker also had a victory in that match.
