    BOULDER - The University of Colorado women’s tennis team begins its 2015 spring season this weekend at the University of Northern Colorado on Saturday, January 24 at 1 p.m. The match will be held at the Work Out West Health and Recreation campus at West 20th Street in Greeley.


    The Buffaloes return seven student-athletes that saw significant playing time last fall, including senior Julyette Steur and freshman Kyra Wojcik, who teamed up to win the ITA Mountain Regional last October. The pair was the first CU doubles team to represent the Buffaloes at the USTA/ITA National Indoors Intercollegiate Championships in New York City.

    Good luck to the tennis team, which starts it's (more serious) spring season tomorrow in Greeley!

    Per the article, conference play starts in March. Looks like the Buffs will need to surprise to "make any noise" in the competitive Pac 12. Per the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) ratings (http://www.itatennis.com/AwardsAndR.../Women_s_National_Team_Rankings_-_Jan__20.htm) , only the Buffs and Oregon schools aren't ranked in the Top 75 nationally. (Doesn't look like OSU has women's tennis as a Division I sport.) The Pac 12 teams that are ranked (and their ranking):

    UCLA (#1)
    Cal (6)
    Stanford (8)
    USC (14)
    ASU (32)
    Arizona (34)
    Washington (Tied at 42)
    Utah (Tied at 42)
    WSU (52)

    We've definitely struggled over the last few season, but hopefully we can start to get things turned around.

    There's also a change to the doubles points this season. Instead of the normal 7 point doubles matches, it's now only played to 6 with no AD. It really makes the doubles matches go quickly and could help us in some of the tougher matches that we will be in.
