Georgia’s non-conference slate also includes NCAA Tournament participants Wake Forest (Aug. 25) and USF (Sept. 11), as well as a Peach State doubleheader at Georgia State (Sept. 1) and Kennesaw State (Sept. 4)

Georgia opens Southeastern Conference play on the road at Texas A&M on Friday, Sept. 16, the first meeting between the schools since 2018. The Bulldogs then host 2021 NCAA quarterfinalist, South Carolina, in their SEC home opener on Sept. 22, followed by a road trip to Florida on Sept. 25.

Beginning with Alabama on Sept. 30, Georgia will stay home for four of its next five matches, including three straight contests at Turner against Tennessee (Oct. 9), Missouri (Oct. 14), and Ole Miss (Oct. 20). The regular season concludes with road matches at Kentucky (Oct. 23) and Mississippi State (Oct. 27).

WTENNIS: Team and Players Earn ITA Honors

For the sixth consecutive year, the University of Georgia women’s tennis team earned Intercollegiate Tennis Association All-Academic honors, while three Bulldogs were named Scholar-Athletes, the ITA announced Monday.

“It’s exciting to see our players excel both on and off the court,” head coach Jeff Wallace said. “Morgan (Coppoc), Lea (Ma), and Dasha (Vidmanova) all had a fantastic year in the classroom, and this reflects that. The team also had an amazing year, earning a sixth consecutive award, as well as, garnering the second-highest team GPA (3.48) on campus.”

Graduate Morgan Coppoc, junior Lea Ma, and freshman Dasha Vidmanova were all named ITA Scholar-Athletes. This marked the third time for both Coppoc and Ma and the first for Vidmanova.

To be named an ITA Scholar-Athlete, one must have a grade point average of at least 3.5 (on a 4.00 scale) for the current academic year. To be named an ITA All-Academic Team, a program must have a team grade point average of 3.2 or above (on a 4.00 scale), and all varsity letter winners should be factored into the cumulative team GPA for the current academic year. 

Coppoc graduated with a master’s in financial planning after earning a degree in risk management and insurance last year. On the court this season, she was 20-12 in singles and went 21-14 in doubles with junior Ania Hertel. They had a final national ranking of No. 17, while Coppoc earned Second Team All-SEC honors

Ma, a sports management major, was named the First Team All-SEC. She posted a 16-8 singles record at the No. 1 spot. Vidmanova, a finance major, recorded a 16-7 record in singles and 13-10 in doubles, upon arriving in January. The freshman was named to the All-Freshman SEC Team and Second Team All-SEC and earned SEC Freshman of the Week honors twice.
