USU Women’s Tennis Ranked No. 8 in the Mountain Region
June 9, 2017

LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women’s tennis was tabbed No. 8 in Mountain Region in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll, recently released by the organization. The ranking is the highest for the Aggies in school history with USU coming off of its fourth consecutive season with 10 or more victories.

“I am proud that our program has been recognized as one of the upper-tier teams in our region,” head women’s tennis coach Sean McInerney said. “The team worked exceptionally hard this past season and I only think it is a sign of things to come with this group.”

In addition to the team recognition, departed senior Nini Guensler finished the season No. 16 in singles in the Mountain Region, capping her year in which she posted a 21-15 mark in singles and a 22-8 record in doubles. Guensler earned all-Mountain West honors in both singles and doubles in 2016-17, sharing the doubles recognition with partner Sabrina Demerath.

Guensler played exclusively at No. 1 singles during the year, and highlighted her senior campaign with singles victories over Utah’s Margo Pletcher, the then-No. 10-ranked singles player in the Mountain Region, as well as New Mexico’s Ludivine Burguiere and Colorado State’s Emily Kolbow in conference play.

“I am really proud of Nini and her career at Utah State,” McInerney said. “She gave everything she had to the program and to finish her career ranked is really special.”
