UCLA Women, USC Men No. 1 for Another Week in the Campbell/ITA Team Rankings
Will, Frank still No. 1 in singles; Notre Dame, Ohio State top doubles


SKILLMAN, N.J. - With each team recording a sweep last week, the UCLA women and USC men find themselves once again ranked No. 1 in this week's Campbell/ITA College Tennis Team Rankings. The Bruins defeated conference foe Washington State 7-0, while the Trojans stepped out of Pac-12 play for the week to pick up a 7-0 win against Virginia Tech. UCLA does not take the court again until Friday, March 23, in a road contest against Colorado. USC is set to take on No. 13 Texas at 7 pm (ET) in Austin.

Virginia freshman Mitchell Frank held down the top spot in the men's singles rankings once again. Frank has still only lost one match this season. Florida junior Allie Will also stayed atop the women's singles rankings despite suffering a loss for the first time this season. Will is currently 15-1 in singles play this season.

In doubles, the Notre Dame tandem of Kristy Frilling and Shannon Mathews moved into the top spot this week on the women's side. Frilling and Mathews have been solid in dual play this season, posting a 9-3 record. Ohio State's Chase Buchanan and Blaz Rola remained the top duo in the men's doubles rankings behind the strength of a 7-1 record against ranked competition.
