Women's Tennis Jumps in Rankings
BATON ROUGE—The LSU women’s tennis team jumped three spots in the latest Tennis Channel/USTA College Tennis Top 25 released today to No. 12 following last week’s sweep of matches against Tulane, Rice and Southern, improving to 6-0 on the season.
The Tigers also moved up the ranks of the ITA/Oracle Collegiate Tennis Rankings for singles and doubles, also released on Wednesday.
In singles, Richardson is currently ranked No. 19 with a 2-1 record, including a big 3-set victory over Tulane’s Laura Farizi last week.
Up next for LSU is a trip to the 2019 ITA National Team Indoor Championships starting Friday, February 8 in Seattle, Washington. The Tigers earned a spot in the ITA National Team Indoor Championships for a second time in program history after defeating Clemson and Tennessee during the ITA Kick-off Weekend in January.
