SKILLMAN, N.J. - The University of Miami women's tennis team has seen success on the court this season against some of the nation's best teams. On Tuesday the Canes were rewarded when they moved up to No. 11 in the latest ITA rankings.

In the past two weeks, Miami has defeated two ACC teams, Clemson and Georgia Tech, two programs that are currently ranked Nos. 14 and 25, respectively.

In fact, on the season, Miami has defeated seven teams that have been or currently are ranked, including five wins over Top 25 teams.

In the singles rankings, freshmen Kelsey Laurente moved to No. 81 and classmate Clementina Riobueno to No. 116. Breaking into the rankings for the first time is Stephanie Wagner at No. 100.

In doubles, the duo of Wagner and sophomore Lina Lileikite remain in the Top 50, at No. 48.

The Hurricanes next hit the court for a weekend in the Lone Star State, facing No. 39 Texas on March 22 and 36th-ranked Baylor on March 23. They return home on March 27 for a match against Brown.
