Simmons Tennis has been ranked 20th among the NCAA Division III Northeast programs, jumping four spots from the #24 ranking the team achieved in spring 2010. The latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) ranking follows the Sharks' third consecutive Great Northeast Athletic Conference Championship in 2010, the team's sixth title in seven years.
The Simmons Tennis program has flourished under six-year Head Coach Bob Rauseo. The 2011 NCAA Tournament will be the fourth national tournament trip for the Sharks under his direction, with the 2009-10 squad advancing to the round of thirty-two.
Simmons will begin their spring 2011 campaign with a match at MIT on Saturday, April 23 at 1:00pm to prepare for NCAAs.
