Men’s Tennis Cracks Top 20 In ITA Rankings
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard men’s tennis team continues to climb the national rankings, coming in at No. 17 in the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll. Harvard jumped up six spots from its previous season-high of No. 23 last week.
The Crimson is the highest ranked Ivy League team in the nation, coming in six spots higher than Ancient Eight foe Cornell (No. 23). The Ivy League boasts four teams in the top 50, as Columbia (No. 32) and Yale (No. 48) are also in the rankings. The last time Harvard was placed within the top 20 was March 2012, when it ascended to No. 16 in the country, coming off wins over San Diego and San Diego State.
Harvard currently stands at 9-4 on the season and has collected wins in its last four matches. Harvard placed third at the ECAC Division I Indoor Team Championships Feb. 15-17, knocking off Yale and Princeton in the process. The Crimson has also downed two Big Ten teams so far this spring (Northwestern and Indiana), and kicked off its dual schedule with a 4-3 win over Notre Dame at the ITA Kick-Off Weekend.
