Tennis Teams Represented in Final ITA Rankings
Zack McCourt, Alanna Wolff and Lindsay Graff were among the Princeton tennis players included in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's final 2013-14 national rankings released Tuesday, June 4.
Wolff, a freshman, was ranked No. 68 and Graff, a junior, was ranked No. 94 in singles, and the pair was ranked No. 90 in doubles. McCourt was ranked No. 110 in singles play.
Wolff and Graff helped Princeton to a 7-0 Ivy League record, a 19-6 overall record and the first NCAA Tournament win in program history, along with coming within two third sets of an upset of national No. 2 Alabama in the NCAA's second round. Wolff also played in the NCAA singles tournament, the first Princeton woman to do so since 2002. The team was ranked No. 36 in the final rankings, which were released May 27. That ranking matched the team's 2010 final standing for the program's highest since 1982.
It's the first time since 1989 that the Princeton women have had two singles players in the final ITA rankings and just the third time overall. McCourt, a junior, gives the Princeton men a ranked singles player at season's end for the third straight year, Princeton's longest such streak since 1994-96. Princeton's men ended the season ranked No. 61 as a team.
All three honorees were named All-Ivy League this season, Graff first-team singles and first-team doubles with Wolff, who was a second-team singles honoree, and McCourt as first-team singles.
