Virginia and Northwestern Retain Top Spots in Campbell/ITA Rankings; Helgeson in College Spotlight; Experts Lucero and Frost
I've been out of the college tennis loop for a couple of weeks, but that will soon be the focus of ZooTennis with the NCAA championships beginning in less than a month.
The selection show for Division I is set for next Tuesday, April 28th on ESPN News, although I can't find the exact time. The men's and women's Division I team championships will be available live via ESPNU and on tape delay on ESPN2 in a 90 minute edited version the next two days.
For all the details on this year's championships, download the participants manual from aggieathletics.com.
The Virginia men and Northwestern women retain their top spots in today's Campbell/ITA rankings, and texascollegetennis.com agrees, but only on that top spot and 6,7,& 8 in the women's top ten, and only the top spot in the men's top ten. For more interesting reading on college tennis rankings, see that same site's post entitled "Outliers: The Winners".
Brett Helgeson, a senior at Notre Dame, is the subject of this week's College Spotlight at usta.com.
And while I was busy with junior tennis, Marc Lucero and Marcia Frost were keeping tabs on all the important matches in college tennis; Marc at his blog, and Marcia at Examiner.com.
