SKILLMAN, N.J. – The University of Miami women’s tennis team split a pair of home matches against two Top 10 ACC programs last weekend and remain the nation’s 10th-ranked team according to the ITA.

Although Miami maintained the same team ranking, a couple players, both freshmen, moved up in the singles rankings.

Stephanie Wagner who has had great success at the No.1 position, continues to improve her national standing. Just two weeks ago, the German was the nation’s 104th-ranked player. Now after jumping 51 spots, she sits at No. 53. Last week, Wagner was ranked 79th.

The bump in her ranking can be attributed to her 8-1 record while playing out of the No. 1 position, her 4-1 record against ranked foes and her 6-4, 6-2 win on Sunday over Duke’s 23rd-ranked Hanna Mar. Mar was the highest ranked opponent that Wagner has defeated this season.

Clementina Riobueno, sporting the Canes’ best singles record at 19-2, moved up nine spots to No. 112. She is also tied with teammates Deborah Suarez and Melissa Bolivar for the longest active win streaks. Each woman has won nine consecutive singles matches.

Two doubles team are also ranked for Miami. The duo of Lina Lileikite and Wagner now sit at 39, while Kelsey Laurente and Brittany Dubins are ranked No. 84.

Laurente is currently ranked 85th in singles.

The women currently 7-2 in conference play, head to Virginia to round out the regular season against ACC teams Virginia Tech and Virginia this Friday and Saturday.
