    W. Tennis Recruiting Class Earns Top 25 Ranking

    Raleigh, N.C. - For the first time in school history the NC State women's tennis team earned a top 25 recruiting class ranking. The Wolfpack finished ahead of all but three ACC schools, including the likes of North Carolina, FSU, Miami and Georgia Tech.

    The class, ranked No. 25, includes two five-star prospects according to, Christy Sipes and Joelle Kissell.

    A native of Gig Harbor, Wash., Sipes is considered the top prospect in the Pacific Northwest and has a national ranking of No. 58. Her school accomplishments include being crowned the state champion in Washington in 2008. She was also a tournament finalist for three straight years at the Pacific Northwest Sectionals.

    Hailing from Hostetter, Pa., Kissell is the second best player in Pennsylvania and No. 46 nationally. In 2006 she won the Western Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic League doubles title with partner Ali Seranko. That same year the tandem won the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association doubles title. In 2008, Kissell added the WPIAL singles title and in 2009 the PIAA singles title.

    Both players will be enrolling at NC State in the fall of 2010. Top Women's Classes
