Kansas ranked No. 17 in ITA rankings
LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Kansas tennis team is ranked No. 17 in Wednesday’s Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s (ITA) poll. The Jayhawks have been ranked among the nation’s top-20 teams in all 10 of this season’s polls. Exactly one month ago, KU tennis achieved an all-time program best ranking of No. 7.
The Jayhawks dropped one spot from last week after splitting their weekend series for the second-straight week. Kansas defeated Baylor on the road, 6-1, and fell at now-No. 6 Texas, 4-3.
Kansas is currently 11-4 on the season and 2-2 in Big 12 Conference play. The Jayhawks this spring have beaten nine teams that are either currently ranked or have appeared in the poll this season: Northwestern, Illinois, Oklahoma, Baylor, Arkansas, Air Force, Tulsa, Rice and Wichita State. KU has not lost to any team outside the current top 13: Texas (No. 6), Oklahoma State twice (No. 9) and Washington (No. 13). Three of those four losses were by the score of 4-3.
