ITA Rankings

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Riding a four match win streak, Saint Mary’s women’s tennis continues to climb up the national rankings, as the Gaels are now No. 45 in the country, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association announced in the recent team rankings.

Alongside the top-50 national ranking, freshmen duo Mariia Kozyreva and Hind Abdelouahid rank 35th in the ITA’s doubles rankings. The duo was No. 51 two weeks ago and is 3-0 in their last five matches.

Under first year head coach Simon Harston, the Gaels have won four of their last five matches, highlighted by convincing wins over Big West powerhouse programs, UC Santa Barbara and UC Davis.

SMC has already faced three top-15 programs on the road in No. 8 Texas Tech, No. 9 UCLA, and previously ranked No. 1 Stanford.

The Gaels host a strong Florida Gators squad on Friday, Feb. 23 at Timothy Korth Tennis Complex. First serve is scheduled for 1 p.m. PT.
