DURHAM, N.C. – After wins over Virginia and Virginia Tech over the weekend, the Duke women’s tennis team moved up a spot to sixth in the most recent Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) rankings, as announced by the organization Tuesday.

The Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) is represented by six teams in the top-25, led by North Carolina at No. 1 in the country. In addition to North Carolina and Duke, Miami (No. 10), Clemson (No. 16), Virginia (No. 18) and Florida State (No. 20) represent the conference in the poll. The ACC and Southeastern Conference (SEC) lead the way with six teams listed apiece, followed close behind by the Pacific-12 with five and the Big 10 with four.

Touting one of the most challenging schedules in the country, the Blue Devils have already faced seven teams in the top-25, recording a 5-2 mark in those matches, and will continue their difficult schedule as they host Georgia Tech Saturday, April 6 at 12 p.m. and No. 16 Clemson, Sunday, April 7 at 12 p.m.
