LUBBOCK, Texas – For the first time in school history Texas Tech has three Lady Raiders ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association Top 125 Women’s Tennis Rankings.
Samantha Adams, who ended last season ranked No. 83, is ranked No. 61 to start the season, while Kenna Kilgo is No. 98 and Nikki Sanders is No. 113.
There have been multiple occasions when two Lady Raiders have been ranked in the ITA Top 125 at the same time, but there have never been three in the rankings simultaneously.
In doubles, the tandem of Adams and Kilgo are currently ranked No. 9 nationally. The duo finished last season ranked No. 20 nationally. Adams and Kilgo have made two straight appearances in the NCAA Doubles Championships.
Texas Tech opens the season on Friday at the Racquet Club Collegiate Invitational in Midland, Texas.
