Top 25 Caliber: Two teams broke into the Top 25 this week.   The Texas A&M men were on the outside looking in last week but a dominant performance during ITA Kick-Off Weekend that included shutout wins against former No. 10 Stanford and current No. 26 San Diego, allowed the Aggies to jump 10 spots in this week’s rankings.  On the women’s side, it was Yale who made their first appearance inside the Top 25 as they knocked off No. 19 Ole Miss in the opening round during ITA Kick-Off Weekend, 4-3.  For Yale, this is their first time ranked in the Top 25 since March 20, 2012.  For Texas A&M, April 3, 2012 was the last time they cracked the Top 25. 

Top 75 Newcomers: Three teams have made their first appearance in the ITA College Rankings this week.  The Purdue and Stetson men along with the women from William and Mary all charged into the Top 75.  The No. 68 Boilermakers posted wins against a pair of Ivy League schools in former No. 49 Dartmouth and No. 51 Brown.  No. 71 Stetson’s big win came in the form of a 5-2 upset against former No. 66 St. John’s.  Meanwhile, No. 53 William and Mary took down current No. 74 Harvard on the road after stunning former No. 19 Ole Miss at home.
