Women’s Tennis Continues to Move Up ITA Rankings
DURHAM — Head coach Jamie Ashworth and Duke’s women’s tennis team continue to climb the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings as the Blue Devils come in at No. 4 in the latest list released Wednesday.
It was the second week in a row that the Blue Devils moved up the table, after a 5-0 start to open the 2023 campaign.
Texas continues to hold the top 10 spot, while North Carolina, Texas A&M, Duke, Georgia, Stanford, Virginia, Pepperdine, Vanderbilt and NC State close out the top 10. A total of four ACC teams are ranked in the top 10.
The Blue Devils have three ranked singles players – Chloe Beck (#3), Emma Jackson (#22) and Cameron Morra (#28) – as well as a ranked doubles duo – Beck/Morra (#13). Beck beat Duke with a 13-3 singles record and won seven straight. Morra (10-6), Brianna Shvets (10-4), Jackson (9-5) and Ellie Coleman (8-3) have at least eight singles wins.
