Women’s Tennis

The University of Miami women’s tennis team was ranked seventh for the first time since 1989 when the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) released its latest Fila Collegiate Tennis Rankings Tuesday.

The No. 7 ranking is also the highest that the Hurricanes have been ranked in head coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews’ five-year tenure.

Miami, which stretched its win streak to eight, improved to 11-3 overall after upsetting then third ranked North Carolina, 5-2, last Friday. The win marked the second third ranked opponent that the Hurricanes have defeated this season. Miami is now first in the ACC standings with a 4-0 record in league play.

The Atlantic Coast Conference placed three teams in the Top 10 including No. 5 North Carolina, No. 7 Miami and No. 10 Duke.

Sophomore standout Audra Cohen moved up to third in the Fila Collegiate Singles Rankings. The Plantation, Fla., native is 17-0 overall and 8-0 against nationally ranked opponents.

Junior Audrey Banada remained ranked No. 83 with a 19-8 overall record while senior Melissa Applebaum stayed at No. 102 with a 10-9 mark.

Cohen and Applebaum moved up three spots to 10th in doubles. Miami’s top tandem upset UNC’s then seventh ranked Jenna Long/Sara Anundsen pair, 9-8 (7-5) to clinch the doubles point in UM’s win on Friday. The duo is 8-0 since joining at the No. 1 position.

Making their debut in the doubles rankings are Banada and freshman Monika Dancevic who join to make the nation’s 45th ranked doubles team. The tandem is 6-2 at the No. 2 position.

Women’s Golf

University of Miami sophomore Hagen Weintraub recorded a final round of 78 to finish tied for seventh at the Waterlefe Invitational at Waterlefe Golf and River Club in Bradenton, Fla.

Weintraub (79-78-78–235) was the Hurricanes’ top finisher leading UM to a fifth-place team finish. Miami recorded a three-round total of 959. Florida International won the team title with a score of 941.

Junior Jessica Steward finished in a tie for 15th (78-84-76–238) while junior Tiffany Prats finished tied for 21st (82-80-79–241). Freshman Anabelle Paulino recorded a score of 250 (82-85-83) to finish tied for 37th with Urd Pedersen rounding out the UM scoring placing 56th with a score of 260 (90-80-90).

The Hurricanes return to action March 27-28 at the Lady Seahawk Invitational in Wallace, N.C.
