Women’s Tennis Comes in at No. 4 in First-Ever Computerized Rankings

Tempe, Ariz. – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) and Oracle unveiled the latest Division II National Rankings on Wednesday, debuting computerized rankings for the first time ever in Division II. Lynn University's women's tennis team occupies the No. 4 position.

The computerized rankings publish the Top 50 men's and women's teams. ITA member coaches have access to the unpublished rankings (teams outside the Top 50). Prior to the shift to computerized rankings, a national rankings panel voted on the Top 25 teams.

Lynn, who has been ranked No. 1 since the preseason poll, falls to No. 4 despite holding an 11-1 record with the squad's only loss coming to NCAA Division I Stetson University. Hawaii Pacific, West Florida and Barry hold the top three positions in the country, respectively.

National singles and doubles rankings were also updated for men and women.

Klaudia Boczova, who is 12-0 this season playing at the top flight, enters the national rankings for the first time as a Fighting Knight after not competing during the fall season. Boczova leads the way for Lynn at No. 17, followed by Natalie Kallmunzerova at No. 29 and Diana Bogolii at No. 41.

In doubles, Bogolii and Boczova are ranked No. 11 while Boczova and Eliska Petrackova are ranked No. 28 as a duo.

National rankings will be released every Wednesday for the remainder of the 2018 season.
