The 20th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers host LSU and Arkansas in the final home weekend of the SEC tennis season.
With only two weeks to go before postseason, the Vols (13-9, 2-6 SEC) have just four more matches remaining before the SEC Championships. They take on No. 54 LSU on Friday at 2 p.m. and No. 59 Arkansas on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Both players have been with the Vols for four years. Chaplin, from Sydney, Australia, is an All-SEC player who has started the last three seasons in the singles and doubles lineup and has recorded numerous key victories.
Norton, from Jackson, Tenn., joined the Vols as a walk-on during his freshman year and has been a key figure behind the scenes of Tennessee's on-court success. He is a three-time member of the ITA All-Academic Team and will be attending medical school next year.
Junior Hunter Reese looks to keep up his season-long success in his final home weekend of the year. Reese has stepped up to the top of the Vols lineup and has compiled a 24-7 record this year, including three wins against top-10 ranked opponents.
Reese and Mikelis Libietis enter this weekend back at the No. 1 national ranking in doubles. The Vol duo is 27-3 this year, including 16-1 in the spring. They've excelled their entire career during SEC play with a 23-4 record together in conference matches the last three years.
