LANCASTER, Pa. - For the first time in head coach Sean Kelleher's four-year tenure at the helm of the Franklin & Marshall men's tennis program, the Diplomats have climbed into the national rankings. F&M earned the No. 26 spot in the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) National Rankings.
The Diplomats also moved their way into the Atlantic South Regional rankings at No. 7, while No. 1 singles player Ross Silverberg (10-4) is now ranked No. 10 in the region individually. F&M earned its place in the rankings with a 5-4 victory over then-No. 21 Swarthmore in Centennial Conference (CC) action last Saturday.
F&M is one of three CC squads ranked nationally in the latest poll, with Johns Hopkins (No. 16) and Swarthmore (No. 27) also garnering spots amongst the nation's best.
The Diplomats return to the court at Haverford on Saturday in another CC matchup at 12:00 pm.
