Three members of the No. 7-ranked Brenau University Golden Tigers tennis team placed among the top national singles players in the first Intercollegiate Tennis Association/National Association for Intercollegiate Athletics tennis rankings. Two of them also ranked as the No. 14 doubles team in the standings.
Dominika Jasova, a senior from Kosice, Slovakia, and Zalina Nazarova, a senior from Sochi, Russia, were the No. 14 doubles group in the poll published last week.
Jasova, previously the top junior college singles player, was listed No. 7 in the nation in the more competitive four-year college rankings.
Teammate Maria Perdomo Medina, a junior from Canary Island, Spain, was ranked 15th and doubles partner Nazarova was 35th.
“This is a testament to the strength of the team,” said Brenau Head Tennis Coach Andre Ferreira. “When three of your seven players are among the top 35 collegiate tennis players in the United States, you have a very good chance to win a lot of matches.”
Other members of the team are Snezhana Kiseleva, a freshman from Naberezhnye Chelny, Russia; Stephanie Moniz, a senior from London, England; Valeria Savina, a junior from Vologda, Russia; and Kelley Cohron, a sophomore from Buford, Ga.
You can meet all the Golden Tigers tennis players at “International Tennis Day” on Monday, March 24, at the university’s Smithgall Tennis Center on the Gainesville campus. For more information about the Golden Tigers tennis tream visit http://www.brenautigers.com/sport/0/5.php
