Women's Tennis Earns High ITA Regional Rankings

ITA Northeast Region Rankings

ITA National Doubles Rankings

Sol Eskenazi was dominant in her rookie season for Penn’s women’s tennis program, earning multiple honors on a regional and Ivy League level. Her strong play as both a singles and doubles player was also reflected in the recently-released final ITA Rankings for 2012.

A first-team All-Ivy selection in doubles, Eskenazi team with Jules Rodin to post a 10-4 record at No. 1 doubles this season, and earned a national ranking of No. 70 in doubles. The duo went 3-1 in the spring against pairs featured inside the national rankings.

Eskenazi was also atop Penn’s ladder in singles during the 2011-12 campaign, earning ITA Northeast Region and Ivy League Rookie of the Year honors. Inside the Northeast Region, Eskenazi's performance earned her a final ranking of No. 4. A first-team All-Ivy selection, Eskenazi also held down the No. 1 singles spot to the tune of a 19-5 record overall, winning nine of her last 11 down the stretch. She won the A flight of her first collegiate tournament, storming to the Columbia Invitational crown and earning a seeded position at the ITA Regional.

Eskenazi and Rodin are part of a young Penn program which is re-establishing its presence on a national level. The Quakers were 7-11 overall this season, and 2-5 inside a very competitive Ivy League. Penn ended the 2012 campaign ranked No. 10 as a team in the Northeast Region by the ITA, with a strong case to move up via a 4-3 win over No. 5 Harvard. The Red and Blue will return six of seven spring season starters for 2012-13, with junior second-team All-Ivy player Stephanie Do also set to lead the Quakers.
