Canes Duo Ranked Seventh in Nation

CORAL GABLES, Fla.  University of Miami men’s tennis players Franco Aubone and Benjamin Hannestad moved up four spots in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division I men’s double rankings following the fall season, checking in at No. 7, as announced Wednesday afternoon.

Aubone and Hannestad entered the fall season at No. 11 in the rankings, but proceeded to impress, capping the fall slate with an ITA Fall Nationals Consolation Doubles Title win.

Overall, the pair posted an 8-2 record in the fall, including wins over the No. 21, No. 23 and No. 43 doubles duos in the nation. One of Miami’s two losses came in the ITA Southeast Regionals Doubles Championship match to the No. 8 pair from Georgia Tech.

Graduate transfer Dan Martin also made an appearance on the ITA national rankings, coming in at No. 121 in the Division I men’s singles rankings. Martin finished the fall with a 10-4 singles record and a win over the No. 56 player in the nation.

Martin went 4-0 in the Bulldawg Invite Main Draw to take home the Magill Flight Single Championship.

A native of Laval, Quebec, Canada, Martin joined the Canes in the offseason after four years at Dartmouth College.
