Carolina Finishes Third In Final ITA Rankings
Release: 05/29/2014
SKILLMAN, New Jersey - The North Carolina women's tennis team claimed the No. 3 ranking in the final ITA Division I National Team Rankings.

Carolina (29-6) advanced to its first national championship match in program history, falling 4-3 to UCLA in Athens, Georgia. The Bruins finished atop the final team rankings by winning its first title since 2008.

The Tar Heels' run to the title match saw them move up four spots from their previous ranking and matched four previous occasions that UNC was third in the country during the 2014 dual match campaign.

Carolina is among seven ACC programs that are included in the top 25, the most among all conferences.

UNC is also in an exclusive club of five schools that have both its men's and women's tennis teams ranked in the top 10. The Tar Heel men's team claimed the seventh slot to conclude their outstanding season.
