UA Women's Tennis Picked To Win West
The Crimson Tide narrowly edged out Ole Miss for the No. 1 spot in the West as Alabama collected 65 points compared to the Rebels' 64 points. Arkansas came in third with 50 points, followed by LSU with 31 points and Auburn at 30 points. Mississippi State rounded out the division in sixth place with 12 points.
The Tide of Coach Jenny Mainz most recently took on opponents from No. 14 Florida State, No. 30 Iowa and Central Florida at the Seminole Quad where Alabama refused to give up a single match. The Tide currently has three players ranked in the top 75 in singles and two doubles teams in the top 35. Freshman Mary Anne Macfarlane comes in at No. 15, which is the highest ranking in program history by a freshman.
Sophomore Alexa Guarachi comes in at No. 63, while junior Courtney McLane stands at No. 72. In doubles, Guarachi and McLane make up the sixth-ranked team in the nation, and Macfarlane and sophomore Antonia Foehse rank No. 32.
Alabama will open its dual match slate on Saturday when it heads to Waco, Texas to take on No. 3 Baylor at 11 a.m. CT in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's annual Kick-off Weekend.
