By  | 

ORLANDO, Fla., – The Texas A&M women's tennis team entered the Tennis Channel / USTA College Tennis Top 25 Rankings for the first time this season at No. 25, it was announced Wednesday.

The Aggies enter the polls on the heels of eight straight wins to open the season for the first time in program history. The 2019 squad is an impressive 41-4 in singles matches this spring and 16-2 in doubles play. The ranking was the first for the Aggies since the final Oracle/ITA Division I Collegiate Rankings of the 2017 season.

The Maroon & White hit the road for matches at Illinois on Valentine’s Day and at Oklahoma on Feb. 17 before returning to the Mitchell Tennis Center for a doubleheader on Feb. 23 against UTRGV and Abilene Christian.

Each team's point total, specified below, is the sum of its ranking points from the USTA's panel of 14 voters. Each voter ranked 25 teams from Nos. 1 to 25, with the first-place team receiving 25 points and the last place team receiving one. For control, the highest and lowest outlying ranking for each team on the ballot was removed. Therefore, the maximum number of points a team can receive is 300. First-place votes were not tallied.
