Twenty-one teams from across the country will come to Coral Gables to participate in this year’s Hurricane Invitational. The women’s heptathlon kicks off the event at 10 p.m. and continues through Saturday.

Women’s Tennis
Doubles team enters top 20

Miami’s tandem of Laura Vallverdu and Romy Farah entered the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s top 20 after winning four of their last five matches.

Vallverdu and Farah moved up from No. 24 after besting Florida State and Clemson’s top pairs, including the Tigers’ then-No. 12 ranked team of Ani Mijacika and Carol Salge, 8-6.

After taking off last week, the women’s tennis team will travel to Virginia this weekend to take on the No. 50 Virginia Cavaliers Saturday and the No. 49 Virginia Tech Hokies Sunday.
