Syracuse is coming off a year in which it reached its highest-ever national ranking.

Syracuse’s tennis team announced its full 2017 schedule on Tuesday afternoon. The Orange is coming off a season in which it advanced to its first ever NCAA tournament, losing to Florida in the second round.

This year’s schedule includes six matches against teams that finished last season ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Top 25.

SU’s season starts the weekend of Jan. 21, with back-to-back contests at Yale and at Columbia. Syracuse doesn’t play its first home match until Feb. 18.

The Orange plays nine of its 21 matches at home at Drumlins Country Club. One contest on the schedule has been color-coded as a home match, but doesn’t list Drumlins Country Club.
