Houston Tennis Breaks into National Rankings

Jan. 22, 2013

HOUSTON - Fresh off a 5-1 rout of No. 59 Stephen F. Austin to open the 2013 season last week, the University of Houston women's tennis team earned a national ranking of No. 75 by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), marking the program's first ranking since March 28, 2006.

The Cougars, led by first-year head coach Patrick Sullivan, kicked off the season in impressive fashion, claiming five of six singles matches against the Ladyjacks, including four in straight sets. The victory was the first over a ranked team for the Cougars since knocking off No. 40 Louisville on March 22, 2008.

Houston emerges in the national rankings for the first time since the Cougars were ranked 71st during the 2006 season. The Cougars' highest spot since the computer rankings were introduced was at No. 62 in 2002.

Houston has earned a spot in the final national rankings four times, with two top-25 finishes in 1990 (No. 24) and 1986 (No. 21). The last time the Cougars ended a season ranked was in 1998 at No. 46.

The Cougars resume the spring season with a doubleheader on Friday, hosting McNeese State at 1 p.m., at John E. Hoff Courts on campus before meeting Tyler Junior College at 6 p.m., at the Galleria Tennis and Athletic Club (GTAC).
