Women's Tennis Receives ITA Ranking
Feb. 28, 2002
The NC State women's tennis team debuted in the Omni Hotels Intercollegiate Tennis Association polls this week at No. 75 after a convincing win over a strong Princeton team last weekend. Senior Captain Katrina Gildemeister led the way with a win over No. 50 Kavitha Krishnamurthy in straight sets of 6-2, 6-3.
"I'm very excited that the team is getting respect for their hard work," stated NC State Head Coach Hans Olsen. "The ITA is a highly respected organization and to receive recognition for our efforts is an extreme honor."
The ITA team rankings are released every Wednesday throughout the season and can be accessed on the web at www.itatennis.com. The committee uses a point system that considers strong wins over both ranked and non-ranked teams, as well as losses to ranked teams and the strength of schedule to calculate team rankings.
