Huskies Hanging In Top-25
Both the UW men and women tennis teams maintained their spots in the Top-25 of the national rankings, as the latest poll was released today by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. The men have now been ranked in the Top-25 since February 4, while the women have been in the upper echelon all season long.
Despite each posting wins in their only outings last week, both Husky teams had minimal slides in the team rankings. The men went down one spot to 22nd after a 6-1 win at then-No. 34 Arizona, while the women slipped two spots despite a 5-2 win on the road at unranked Oregon.
Both teams will have a golden opportunity to make a rankings jump this weekend with the postseason right around the corner. But that will take a win over some loaded teams from the Bay Area. The men will travel to face No. 7 Stanford and No. 15 Cal, while the women will be hosting 11th-ranked Stanford and 12th-ranked Cal. Both the men and women face the Cardinal on Friday, then the Bears on Saturday.
Looking at the Pac-10, six of the nine women's teams are in the Top-25, led by 8th-ranked UCLA. For the men, five of the seven teams reside in the Top-25, with 3rd-ranked USC in control of the conference race.
