CHICAGO, Ill. - The University of Chicago men's and women's tennis teams both earned top 10 national rankings from Tennisrecruiting.net for their incoming 2014 recruiting classes.
UChicago's men will welcome in the top recruiting class in NCAA Division III, totaling a quartet of four-star athletes and one three-star athlete. The class is also tied at No. 36 with Yale and Ole Miss among 256 NCAA Division I schools in the rankings. The Maroons women's squad owns the No. 7 class in NCAA Division III, with one four-star athlete and two three-star athletes.
"We understand that recruiting classes alone do not win championships," said Head Coach Jay Tee, "but we believe the incoming classes will give us a solid foundation to build from in future years. The true measure of these classes won't be known for four years, but I'm confident that the incoming students bring a great combination of academics, athletics and school pride. We can't wait for the teams to return in September so we can get to work."
