Feb. 22, 2006

LAWRENCE, Kan. — Following four straight victories, including its most recent against then-No. 74 Louisville, the University of Kansas tennis team has been ranked 75th by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association in its latest poll.

The ranking is KU’s first since it was tabbed No. 75 in February of 2004.

Kansas’ Ksenia Bukina also appears in the latest individual poll, checking in at No. 81 in the singles rankings. The freshman is 4-1 in singles play this season while occupying the No. 1 spot for the Jayhawks.

KU will look to bolster its rankings when it hits the road this weekend for matches with No. 60 Arkansas on Saturday and No. 72 Tulsa on Sunday.
