Published

on

TEMPE, Ariz. — The NC State women’s tennis team made history on Tuesday, checking in at No. 9 in the Oracle/ITA Division I Rankings, marking the program’s highest ranking in its history. The announcement follows the Pack posting a 2-1 record on the weekend, including a 5-2 ranked win over No. 22 Wake Forest on the road. No. 8Anna Rogers also made program history in the singles rankings, topping her previous program-best No. 15 ranking.

The team is 21-4 (10-2) on the season. With the win over the Demon Deacons, the Pack made program history, posting its 20th win, which had never been accomplished before this season.

In its 2019 campaign, the squad has collected 10 ACC wins, eclipsing the program’s previous record of eight conferences wins in a season.

Its 3-1 start to conference play was its best in at least 20 years.

Checking in at No. 8, Rogers reaches the highest singles ranking in program history. Playing on court one, the junior has posted a 29-10 record this season, including a 19-4 record in dual season.

Rogers is currently on an 11-match winning streak with wins over six ranked opponents during the stretch. In her past four singles matches, the Stamford, Conn., native has faced four ranked opponents, needing only straight sets to claim victory.

She has totaled 16 ranked singles wins this season.

Rogers set the previous program standard for the highest singles ranking last week, checking in at No. 15.

Alana Smith is tabbed at No. 93 in the singles rankings. The four-time ACC Women’s Freshman of the Week has defeated four ranked singles opponents this season, including a top-10 win over No. 10 Marta Gonzalez (Georgia).

Adriana Reami, tabbed at No. 110, boasts a 17-5 record in dual season and has defeated four ranked opponents in her 2019 campaign.

Rogers and Smith hold steady at No. 9 in the doubles rankings. The junior-freshman duo has collected 27 wins this season and has won eight out of its last 10 doubles matches. Impressively, they have posted a 10-3 record against nationally ranked opponents, including two top-five wins (No. 5 Janet Koch and Nina Khmelnitckaia – Georgia, No. 4 Marie Leduc and Fernanda Navarro – Clemson).

The No. 9 Pack will be back in action Wednesday, April 7 at No. 4 Duke at 6 p.m.

NC State Women’s Basketball Defensively Smothers Maine 62-34

Published

#14 NC State’s Women’s Basketball team improved to 4-0 yesterday, defeating Maine (1-3) 62-34.

It wasn’t the Wolfpack’s best shooting day, but fortunately, their defense was stifling, holding Maine to 24.6% shooting from the field and 34 points on the day.

Sophomore Elissa Cunane had a double-double for the 2nd consecutive game, with 12 points (4-8) and 10 rebounds. The double-double was the 6th of her career.

Freshman Forward Jada Boyd had a career-high 16 rebounds (team high), as well as 3 assists (team high), 3 blocks (team high) and 8 points (4-8).

Senior Guard Aislinn Konig shot 50% from three (3-6), which marks her best performance on the year. Considering the fact that “Ace” started the year in a shooting slump, this was extremely encouraging to see.

 

Redshirt Senior Grace Hunter was held out of this game after tweaking her knee a couple of days ago. They are hopeful she will be able to play against St. Mary’s on Sunday. Hunter is coming off of an ACL surgery, and had 15 points last game.

The Wolfpack will play their first road game of the season on Sunday at St. Mary’s at 5pm.
