ARLINGTON, Texas - UT Arlington women’s tennis is rank No. 2 in the mid-major preseason polls, tennisrecruiting.net announced Friday.
In tennis, schools that are not part of the ACC, Big East, Big 10, Big 12, Pac 10, SEC and the Ivy League are considered mid-major universities.
The Mavericks are welcoming three new additions to the women’s tennis team. Katerina Dikosaljevic from Australia, Nada Marjanovic from Canada and Elizabeth Thomas from Great Britain are expected to make an impact for the team.
"We are proud of the work we've done recruiting this class," UT Arlington head tennis coach Diego Benitez said. "This is a big year coming up for us and we are looking forward to the challenge.”
The University of Idaho is the only other Western Athletic Conference opponent ranked in this poll and they rest at No. 21.
