Vickers was ranked 125th nationally in singles and fifth in the Central region. Enrique and senior Michelle Farley were ranked 12th and 13th, respectively, in the region.
In doubles, Vickers and Enrique earned the top spot in the Central while Farley and freshman Saana Saarteinen claimed the eighth spot.
