MARIETTA, Ga. – The Tennis Recruiting Network has released its fourth annual NCAA Division III Women's Recruiting Class Top 25 poll, and the incoming class for Case Western Reserve University is ranked 23rd in the nation for the second-straight year.
With four incoming players, CWRU was one of a nation-high six University Athletic Association programs ranked in the Top 25. Two of the incoming Spartans earned a two-star ranking, and the 2013 recruiting class as a whole represents four different states.
"Ranking in this poll for the third time in four seasons is another sign of the incredible progress we have made with our women's program," said Head Coach Todd Wojtkowski. "Especially exciting with this incoming group is that it is very similar to last season's. We don't necessarily have one particular standout, but we feel that each player has the opportunity to become an outstanding collegiate player because of their potential and work ethic."
The newcomers will join a team that finished the season with the No. 25 ranking in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association national poll. The Spartans (12-9 in 2012-13), nationally ranked for the first time in program history this spring, had reached as high as No. 22 in the polls back in April.
