BOONE, N.C. – Appalachian State University women's tennis begins a four-match, six-day road swing when it travels to Charleston, S.C. for a series of non-conference contests.

The Mountaineers (4-6) begin their week against College of Charleston (4-3) on Sunday before facing Richmond (3-4) on Monday. After an off day on Tuesday, Appalachian will face its toughest test of the season when it squares off against No. 12 North Carolina (11-3) on Wednesday.

Appalachian caps off the week when it faces Southern Miss (4-8) on Friday. All four matches are slated for a 10 a.m. start time.

The Apps dropped a 5-2 decision to College of Charleston when the teams met last year as members of the Southern Conference and the Cougars are coming off a 4-1 loss to ETSU on Monday - a defeat that knocked CofC from the national rankings.

Richmond, which began the year 3-1, has dropped three-straight matches entering the week while Southern Miss is in the midst of a two-match winning streak. The Tar Heels are the heavy hitter among the four as UNC boasts the nation's top-ranked singles player (Jamie Loeb) as well as four other nationally-ranked singles competitors.

North Carolina, which fell to Duke last Sunday to snap a six-match winning streak, also has three nationally-ranked doubles tandems.

Following the four matches in Charleston, the Apps return to SoCon play when they travel to Georgia Southern on March 16.
