NC State Men’s Tennis Caps Off Historic Team Season with Individual Ranking Accolades

Published

on

TEMPE, Ariz. – NC State men’s tennis ended the 2018-19 season with two individuals ranked in the top 30 of the final singles and doubles Oracle/ITA Division I Rankings of the year, as announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Wednesday afternoon.

Alexis Galarneau finished the season ranked No. 26 in singles. Galarneau’s final singles ranking is the highest for a Wolfpack player in recorded ITA history, which dates back to 1981.

Galarneau put together a stellar junior campaign playing at the top singles spot for the Wolfpack and compiling a 16-10 overall singles record during 2019 dual match play. Seven of Galarneau’s victories on the year came against opponents who were nationally-ranked at the time of competition, and he beat the nation’s No. 15 player on two occasions for the highest ranked wins of his career.

After finding himself ranked in the national top 30 since March 5 and the national top 45 for the entirety of the season, Galarneau earned an at-large bid to compete at the NCAA Singles Championships. The selection made him the first Wolfpack player since at least the 2000 season to reach the national tournament in back-to-back seasons.

The Laval, Canada native racked up postseason honors as he was named a member of the First Team All-ACC for the second season in a row, marking the third all-conference honors of his NC State career. Galarneau also garnered a regional award as he was named ITA Carolina Region Player to Watch.

After finishing in the final standings for three seasons in a row, becoming just the fourth NC State player to accomplish that feat, Galarneau achieved the best final ranking of his career with the No. 26 designation.

Galarneau and Michael Ogden were tabbed No. 28 as a doubles pair. Their ranking sits fourth in program history and is the best end-of-season doubles ranking for the Pack since 2014.

Pairing up for 18 doubles matches during the 2019 dual match campaign, Galarneau and Ogden picked up 11 victories all at the top doubles spot for NC State. The duo defeated three nationally-ranked opponents on the year, with two of those wins coming during ACC action.

Galarneau and Ogden’s No. 28 ranking marks their best final doubles ranking as a pair after they were tabbed No. 39 to end the 2016-17 season. Their previous season-best ranking was No. 42, achieved on April 16, and their final ranking bests that number by 14 spots.
