W. Tennis Caps Season at No. 20 in Oracle/ITA Rankings
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – For the 17th year in a row, the University of Miami women’s tennis team ended the season in the top 25 of the Oracle/ITA rankings.
The Hurricanes closed the 2019 campaign at No. 20 nationally, as announced Wednesday afternoon. The number is just a one-spot drop from the May 1 release prior to the NCAA Team Championship.
