While no national singles or doubles rankings are released in the fall, the Tigers were well-represented in the regional rankings.

As a team, the Tigers are ranked second in the Central Region behind Gustavus Adolphus. Junior Liz Bondi is ranked first in the region in singles, while freshman Elizabeth Steele is third. Freshman Amrita Padda is 17th and junior Alex Nelson is 19th.

Bondi and Steele (pictured) top the regional doubles rankings after winning the ITA's Division III Regional title and the Super Bowl of Small College Tennis. They were the first Division III players to earn a spot in the ITA Indoor Collegiate Championships.

Nelson and freshman Connie Shim are ranked sixth in the region, while Padda and sophomore Claire Ellis are ranked seventh.
