The Florida State Men’s and Women’s tennis teams were ranked in the preseason poll released by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Tuesday, January 8th. The women’s team is ranked at 34th in the national poll. The men’s team begins the season ranked 54th.
“I am not terribly concerned with the preseason rankings,” Women’s Head Coach Lise Gregory said. “Things change so much during the season that the polls at the end of the season are much different than what the preseason polls suggested.”
The women begin their season Tuesday, January 22, 2002, when they play host to cross-town rival FAMU. The Lady Rattlers are not ranked in the preseason poll.
The men’s team will host the Seminole Team Tournament on Saturday, January 26, 2002 before beginning dual match play.
