Women's Tennis Players Ranked in ITA Poll

BATON ROUGE – Two LSU women’s tennis players were listed in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association preseason rankings, the organization announced Friday.

Sophomore Keri Frankenberger and junior Whitney Wolf debut at No. 41 in the doubles rankings, jumping 48 spots from their peak at No. 89 last season. The duo earned a team best 15-9 record last season, highlighted by a win against then-ranked No. 25 Chelsea Preeg and Jackie Wu of Vanderbilt.

In addition, the tandem was selected to the 2010 D’Novo All-American Championships in Tulsa, Okla., in October where they will compete in the qualifying doubles draw.

Wolf, who is ranked 122nd in the singles rankings, will also take the court in the prequalifying singles portion of the tournament.
