Natalie Beazant and Dominique Harmath capped their first season as a doubles team by cracking the Top 20 in the final Campbell's/ITA rankings, moving up six spots from 26th to 20th after their performance at the NCAA Championship.
The duo who closed out their season by winning Rice's first match in the NCAA Doubles Championship last month, earned the #20 spot in the computer rankings, four spots better than the previous top ranking of 24th by Wendy Wood and Lori Cronk in 1986.
Beazant also made a strong final push up the national rankings in singles, moving up nine spots to finish 27th and match Tracie Blumentritt (1983) for the third-highest ranking by an Owl in the women's singles ranking. Beazant's finish was the highest by a Rice women's singles player since Wendy Wood completed her senior year with a #13 ranking in 1986.
The ITA also release the final rankings for the Texas region, with the Owls finishing sixth in the team tabulations. Beazant and Harmath were ranked fourth in doubles, while each also made the singles list as well, with Beazant ranked fourth and Harmath 15th.
