CORAL GABLES, Fla. – After a deep run in the NCAA Doubles Championship, Monique Albuquerque and Clementina Riobueno rose to No. 6 in the final ITA doubles rankings of the season, announced Wednesday. 

Ranked No. 8 heading into the national tournament in Athens, Ga., Albuquerque and Riobueno beat three ranked opponents and two in the top-10 en route to the Elite Eight. During the Sweet 16 of the team championship, Albuquerque and Riobueno picked up their best win of the season—an 8-5 win against No. 1 Jennifer Brady and Robin Anderson of UCLA.

For the spring, Miami’s All-American doubles team appeared in every poll of 2014 while posting a 23-4 overall record and a 10-1 mark in ACC play. At the No. 1 spot, the Canes’ duo went 15-3 and went 6-2 at No. 2.

Two singles players—Stephanie Wagner at No. 26 and Lina Lileikite at No. 99—appeared in the final singles poll of the season. Wagner finished the season at the NCAA Singles Championship, where she picked up a win against 16th-ranked Breanna Morgan of Florida before falling to Beatrice Capra of Duke in the Round of 32. This spring, Wagner finished with a 22-5 record and 12-2 against ACC foes.

Lileikite, who split time between the three and four singles spots for the Canes, has appeared in the final three rankings of the spring. The rising senior posted a 17-7 overall record and a 10-2 conference record in her junior campaign.
