SKILLMAN, N.J.  - The new ITA Women's Tennis rankings have been released and three Hurricanes are recognized in singles play while a duo is ranked in doubles.

Miami's highest ranked singles player is freshman Kelsey Laurente, coming in at No. 52. The Miramar, Fla., native has compiled an 8-2 record so far this spring, is 6-1 in dual matches and is 2-0 against fellow ranked players.

Sophomore Lina Lileikite comes in at No. 92 and another freshman, Clementina Riobueno is ranked for the first time in her collegiate career at No. 104. Riobueno has been impressive in her short time with the Canes. The Barquisimeto, Venezuela product is a perfect 8-0 in dual matches on the season and has proven to be a stalwart on the back end of the lineup.

Lilekite also enters the doubles rankings at No. 42 with her partner, freshman Stephanie Wagner. This past Saturday, the duo defeated UCLA's 16th-ranked squad of Robin Anderson and Skylar Morton. The victory helped the Canes earn the doubles point, the first time on the season that the Bruins were unable to capture that point.

As a team, Miami is ranked 12th in the nation and currently holds a 6-2 record. The Canes will next face in-state foe Florida State in their conference opener at the Neil Schiff Tennis Center on Feb. 23 at 11 a.m.
