Huskies Reach Highest Ranking Since '05
The Intercollegiate Tennis Association trotted out its latest set of team rankings today, and the Husky women moved up three more spots to 20th in the country. It's the first time the Dawgs have found themselves in the Top-20 since the 2005 season, which also happened to be the last time UW was coming off a Sweet-16 bid, as the 2010 Huskies are.
Washington moved up from 23rd thanks in part to an upset of 16th-ranked South Carolina on Saturday. Washington's lastmatch as a Top-20 team came on April 2, 2005 against Tulane. The Huskies that year wound up ranked 25th in the final poll. It's the first time in the Top-20 for UW under fifth-year head coach Jill Hultquist.

In other news, the Seattle Times sent a photographer out to get a few shots of top-ranked standouts Venise Chan and Denise Dy, for a feature to run in the coming weeks. With two flashbulbs set up at net, Chan and Dy warmed up with each other at the start of practice, each one getting a turn up at net for some closeups.
