SKILLMAN, N.J. - The Stetson men's tennis team was once again ranked nationally by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) this week, as was released on Tuesday afternoon. The Hatters dropped one spot to number 72 in the rankings.
Stetson was ranked 72nd going into its match against Flagler this past weekend. The Hatters won 7-0 to improve to 2-0 on the season, their sixth straight year beginning with a pair of victories.
"If it was not for a couple of big upsets this week, we probably would have moved up a couple of spots following our win against Flagler College," Stetson Director of Tennis Pierre Pilote said.
The Hatters were joined in the rankings by fellow Atlantic Sun Conference competitors North Florida (62nd) and ETSU (74th).
Stetson will continue the 2013 season on Sunday, Feb. 17, hosting Florida A&M. The match is scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m.
"With no rankings to be released next week because of the indoor championships, our inactivity this weekend will not hurt our position in the national rankings."
