W. Tennis Holds Steady at No. 23 in ITA Rankings

CORAL GABLES, Fla. The University of Miami women’s tennis team retained its No. 23 spot in the ITA Top 25 Coaches Poll, as announced Wednesday morning.

Miami (3-1) has been in the top 25 for the entirety of the spring campaign thus far.

The Hurricanes went 1-1 in ITA Kick-Off Weekend action last weekend, dropping a heartbreaking 4-3 decision to USC, then ranked No. 17 and now No. 10, Friday afternoon in Waco, Texas. The next day, Miami rebounded to handily defeat Kansas, 4-1.

Miami is one of six teams from the ACC—the most of any league—in the top 25. The Hurricanes join second-ranked North Carolina, sixth-ranked NC State, seventh-ranked Virginia, No. 12 Duke and No. 24 Florida State on the list.

The Hurricanes are now the fifth-highest-ranked team in the ACC, a two-spot jump from last week.

The full ITA Top 25 Coaches Poll can be found HERE. The rankings will changed to a computerized method later in the season.

Miami is back in action Saturday at noon when it hosts No. 17 Old Dominion in a top-25 showdown at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center.
