For the 17th time in the Jeff Wallace era, the University of Georgia women’s tennis team finished with a top five final national ranking.
In the final Oracle/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings that were released Wednesday, Georgia came in at No. 4. The top five featured Texas, who beat Pepperdine for the national title, followed by North Carolina, Pepperdine, Georgia and UCLA.
The Bulldogs (23-2), who captured the SEC regular season and tournament titles, advanced to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championships. Georgia went undefeated in conference play, going 13-0 in the regular season and swept to the tournament title by posting three straight shutouts.
Wallace, who recently completed his 36th season, guided the team to its latest top five finish and 31st overall in the top 10. Four Bulldogs have already earned All-America honors based on their seeding and finish in the recent NCAA Championships.
The final ITA singles and double rankings will be released Wednesday, June 2nd.
