SKILLMAN, N.J. (Mar. 3, 2016) – Caltech men's tennis has received the program's and possibly the school's first-ever national ranking, coming in at No. 40 in the season's first Oracle/ITA Division III Men's National Team Rankings.
The Beavers, who are 2-0 against NCAA foes this season, earned the historic ranking thanks to their first-ever victory over a nationally ranked opponent in then-No. 34 Cal Lutheran University by a 6-3 score on Feb. 26.
Although the first regional rankings will not come out until March 21, Caltech currently ranks behind nine West region rivals in the national ranking. The Beavers ranked a program-record 13th in the region at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
Head Coach Mandy Gamble and the Beavers face defending national champion No. 2 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges (5-0, 0-0) on Sunday, Mar. 6 and host Wabash College (8-3) on Wednesday, Mar. 9.
