U of R Women's Tennis Collects Preseason Ranking of No. 24 in NCAA Division III

The University of Redlands women's tennis team looks forward to the 2013 spring season as the No. 24 team in NCAA Division III, according to the last week's preseason poll by Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).  The Bulldogs also sit fifth in the West Region, among a top-heavy contingent of Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) programs.

Redlands returns a hearty crew of competitors, headlined by First-Team All-SCIAC selection, senior Jessica Ly (Torrance, CA), and Second-Team All-Conference honoree, sophomore Ceara Sumida (Hilo, HI). 

Furthermore, the Bulldogs boast one of the top-eight doubles duos in the West Region in freshman Natalie Etchegaray (Placentia, CA) and sophomore Julia Pollak (Holland, PA).

The Maroon and Gray looks forward to competing against some of the best teams in the nation during its spring schedule, including seven of the top 25.

Following a strong fall performance at the ITA West Regional Tournament, Redlands picks up action on Saturday, February 2, 2013, when it hosts Vanguard University in an 11 a.m. non-conference bout.
