Tennis Moves Up 13 Spots To No. 30 Nationally
BOULDER - The University of Colorado tennis team have reached new heights after upsetting then-No. 14 Baylor last Sunday moving up 13 spots to No. 30 nationally in the latest Fila/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings announced Tuesday.
The No. 30 ranking is the highest under eight-year head coach Nicole Kenneally and highest ranking the women's tennis has earned since the beginning of the 1998-99 season when they were No. 27 nationally.
The Buffaloes (7-3, 3-0 Big 12) are off to its best start since the 2002-03 season when they advanced to the NCAA Tournament.
CU is also 3-0 in Big 12 Conference play, their best start ever.
The victory over the Bears last Sunday was CU's first win over a top-15 team since defeating No. 13 Kansas at the Big 12 Tournament on April 25, 1998.
The Buffaloes have won four of its last five matches and will defend their No. 30 ranking at No. 68 Missouri this Saturday, March 10 before hosting No. 43 Oklahoma State (March 12, Noon) and No. 9 William and Mary (March 14, 2 p.m.).
Both sites for the home matches will be determined either at the Millennium Harvest House or the South Campus Tennis Courts.
