W. Tennis Moves up to No. 23 Nationally
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – The University of Miami women’s tennis team ascended one spot in the ITA Top 25 Coaches Poll, now checking in at No. 23, as announced Wednesday morning.
Miami (2-0) held the No. 24 position in each of the first two rankings releases of 2022, but jumped one place after a pair of 7-0 wins to begin the year.
The Hurricanes posted their first sweep last Thursday at FGCU and followed it with a matching result Tuesday at home versus Florida Atlantic. It is the first time since 2016 Miami has posted back-to-back 7-0 triumphs.
Miami is one of seven ACC schools in the top 25, joining second-ranked North Carolina, sixth-ranked Duke, eighth-ranked NC State, ninth-ranked Virginia, No. 12 Georgia Tech and No. 18 Florida State.
