SKILLMAN, NJ (Jan. 20) - After opening the 2015 spring season atop the ITA Division I National Team Rankings, the UCLA women and USC men remained as the No. 1 teams in the nation.

 

The Trojan men rolled to a 6-1 win in their season-opening match against UC Riverside on Monday. In individual action, senior Roberto Quiroz captured the singles title at the Sherwood Collegiate Cup, while also making a run to the doubles final with Max de Vroome.

 

For the Bruins, both Jennifer Brady and Kyle McPhillips won singles titles over the weekend. McPhillips bested Pepperdine's Lorraine Guillermo to win the National Collegiate Tennis Classic, with Brady ousting Giuliana Olmos to claim victory at the Freeman Memorial Championships. UCLA hosts its first dual match of the season against Marshall on Saturday as part of the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.

 

The women's Top 10 saw significant shakeup in just the second rankings release of the spring season. Duke slipped from No. 2 to No. 4 after a close 4-3 win over William & Mary. Florida and North Carolina each bumped up one spot into the No. 2 and No. 3 rankings, respectively. No. 5 Georgia lost 4-3 on the road to No. 15 Baylor, causing Georgia to slip to No. 10 while Baylor climbed 6 spots to No. 9. Virginia slides up a spot into the No. 5 ranking in the wake of Georgia's loss, and No. 11 Texas A&M was nudged out of the Top 10 by Baylor and Georgia.

 

Follow the Leader: For the men, USC is followed by (in order): Oklahoma, Virginia, UCLA, Ohio State, Baylor, North Carolina, Georgia, Texas and Texas A&M. On the women's side, UCLA is followed by Florida, North Carolina, Duke, Virginia, California, Alabama, Stanford, Baylor and Georgia.
