Loeb, Giron finish season atop final ITA Division I Singles Rankings
Alabama, Tennessee claim top doubles spots 
 
SKILLMAN, NJ (June 4) - With the 2013-14 season officially over, UCLA's Marcos Giron and North Carolina's Jamie Loeb finished the year as the nation's top singles players in the final ITA National Singles Rankings. Final regional rankings for team, singles and doubles were also released.
 
Giron, a junior, ended the season as the Bruins' 11th NCAA Singles Champion and first since 2006. His season record was 30-5 overall, his second-straight 30-win season, and he scored 18 ranked wins. Giron, the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships consolation winner, has been ranked in Top 5 the ITA Division I Singles Rankings since February 11. 

Freshman Loeb wrapped up an impressive season with a 53-4 singles record, including 19-1 in the fall. The Tar Heel won the 2013 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships and Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championships. She has been ranked in the No. 1 spot in the ITA Division I National Singles Rankings since February 11, and is the first female from North Carolina to be the top-ranked singles player. Loeb was named ITA National Rookie of the Year and she led her team to a runner-up finish at the 2014 NCAA Team Championships. 
 
In women's doubles, Erin Routliffe and Maya Jansen of Alabama surged to the No. 1 ranking on the heels of their 2014 NCAA Doubles Championship. The duo captured the program's first national title with a commanding 6-1, 6-0 victory over Georgia's Lauren Herring and Maho Kowase. The Crimson Tide duo finished the season 22-4 and won their final 10 matches.

Tennessee's Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese won their program's second ever NCAA Doubles Championship by defeating Ohio State's Peter Kobelt and Kevin Metka 7-6(4), 6-7(3), 7-6(6) and they end the year as the top-ranked doubles team. The Vols finished with a 36-5 record and went 13-1 during major tournaments this year, also winning the ITA All-American Championships and finishing runner-up at the 2013 USTA/ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships.
