HANOVER, N.H. – After going undefeated through the first month of the season and accumulating a record of 12-0, the Dartmouth men’s tennis team is now ranked 14th in the ITA National Rankings.
This is the highest the Big Green have ever been ranked. Dartmouth spent the entirety of the spring of 2016 in the rankings, sitting as high as No. 34 (Feb. 5-14).
Two other Ivy League teams also made it into the rankings. Columbia – which has finished first in the conference since 2014 and earned a share of the title with Cornell and Harvard last season – is eighth, while the Crimson are No. 26.
In doubles, sophomores Charlie Broom and David Horneffer have moved up from No. 19 to 17th. They went 2-1 over the weekend, defeating pairs from Monmouth and Princeton, and falling to the doubles team from Harvard. Freshman Dan Martin is No. 101 in the singles rankings, having gone 2-1 at the No. 2 position at Yale last weekend.
Last weekend, Dartmouth won its first-ever ECAC Championship title, taking down Monmouth, Princeton and Harvard all by scores of 4-1. The Green have shut out exactly half of their 12 opponents so far this season.
Dartmouth has another busy weekend coming up when it hosts Iowa on Saturday, and Old Dominion and Boston University the following day.
