TEAM/SINGLES/DOUBLES

TEMPE, Ariz.
– With the dual match season on the horizon, Oracle and the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced the updated Oracle/ITA Collegiate Tennis Women’s Division I National Rankings on Wednesday.

A new wrinkle this year sees the national ranking panel voting on the Top 25 teams, while computerized rankings are in effect for singles and doubles. The national team rankings will shift to the computer system following the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February.

The University of Florida starts the spring season atop the national rankings. The Gators finished the 2016 season at No. 3. Francesca Di Lorenzo of Ohio State, winner of the 2016 Riviera/ITA Women’s All-American Championship and 2016 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championship, sits atop the singles rankings. Kentucky’s Mami Adachi and Aldila Sutjiadi are the No. 1-ranked doubles team. The Wildcat duo won their first national title at the 2016 USTA/ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships.
