(1) Clemson, (2) Kansas State, (3) Purdue, (4) UNC-Wilmington 

By starting the fall as the No. 1-ranked doubles team in the Campbell/ITA national rankings, all eyes at Clemson were placed squarely on seniors Josipa Bek and Keri Wong.

But while Bek and Wong didn’t disappoint -- winning the USTA/ITA Carolina Regional Championship -- it was Tiger junior Nelly Ciolkowski who shined the brightest on her team during the fall. After reaching the Regional singles final, Ciolkowski went 5-1 for her native France at the Master’U BNP Paribas, defeating 25th-ranked Lauren Embree of Florida along the way. The highest-ranked singles player at this site will be No. 17 Petra Niedermayerova of Kansas State, who reached the semifinals of the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships.

A rash of injuries at Wake Forest resulted in the Demon Deacons pulling out of the event due to lack of available players. That opened the door for UNC-Wilmington, which is replacing Wake Forest for the event. The Seahawks feature two players with double-digit singles wins on the season, and all six singles players enter the weekend with winning records.
