WACO, Texas -
The Baylor men's doubles team of Reiner Neurohr and Mark Williams moved up 12 places to No. 16 in the country, and the Baylor women's tennis team kept its three spots among the nation's top 100 singles players in the latest individual rankings, released late Friday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).
Neurohr and Williams moved back into the top 25, where they had spent all season prior to the last ITA poll. The duo is 15-7 this season, including a perfect 4-0 mark in Big 12 play.
On the women's side, senior all-American Jahnavi is the highest-ranked Bear, coming in at No. 29 in singles. That mark is up one spot from the previous poll.
Junior Katja Kovac fell four places to No. 35 even while she has won seven consecutive matches. Kovac leads the Bears with a 26-10 record this season and is two wins shy of Rachel Forney's school record for career singles victories.
Like Kovac, sophomore Vida Mulec slipped two spots despite an impressive winning streak. Mulec, now ranked No. 67, had won eight straight before losing on Thursday.
