Following a disappointing overtime defeat to No. 7 Louisville (15-3, 3-3 ACC), No. 9 Virginia (11-6, 3-3 ACC) looks to respond against yet another top-10 opponent.
No. 9 Virginia suffered its sixth loss of the season Friday night in Charlottesville to No. 7 Louisville.

The No. 10 Virginia field hockey team recorded its most impressive win of the season to date, a 1-0 overtime win over No. 2 Syracuse.
No. 10 Virginia has yet another top-10 this matchup this weekend when they face No. 2 Syracuse.
The Cavaliers will play an inconsistent William & Mary (5-6, 2-1 CAA) team Tuesday.
Not only was Vitesse instrumental in helping the Cavaliers defeat two ranked teams, she was honored as the ACC Field Hockey Co-Offensive Player of the Week.
