PHILADELPHIA - In the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association Poll released today, freshman Connie Hsu jumped three spots from her position in the rankings two weeks ago. This week she finds herself ranked 12th nationally, up from 15th in the previous poll.
Over the past two weeks, Hsu picked up two victories in the number one position for Penn. In her match against Stony Brook, Hsu did not allow a game in the first set and only surrendered one game in the second set to give her team one of its two victories in singles on the day. In the inter-city matchup versus Saint Joseph's, Hsu once again went through the first set not allowing a game, before dropping just two games in the second, doing her part to help the team beat Saint Joseph's, 7-0.
Hsu is joined in the rankings this week by two fellow Ivy League players. Holly Cao of Harvard came in at No. 67, while Elizabeth Epstein of Yale is currently ranked 88th.
Hsu is currently 32-2 on the season, including a perfect 9-0 mark this spring. She and the rest of her teammates will be back in action on Friday at 4 p.m. against Binghamton. After the Friday match, the Quakers will head to Jacksonville, Florida for three matches over spring break. Afterward, they return to Philadelphia for their final preparations for the Ivy League Season, facing Georgetown on March 18.
