Tennis Channel / USTA College Tennis Top 25: May 25, 2022

Pat Mitsch | May 25, 2022

ORLANDO, Fla., May 25, 2022 – The final Tennis Channel / USTA College Tennis Top 25 poll of 2022 puts a stamp on where the quality and quantity were found this Division I college tennis season.

 

On the men's side, national champions Virginia leads six teams from the ACC in the final season rankings, though that total is second to that of the SEC—which finished the season with seven men's programs ranked in the Top 25, more than one-fourth of the whole field.

 

While the Big 12 topped the women's poll with national champions Texas and runners-up Oklahoma, the SEC once again led all conferences with six programs ranked, followed by both the ACC and Pac-12 with five. 

Each team's point total, specified below, is the sum of its ranking points from the USTA's panel of voters (listed below). Each voter ranked 25 teams from Nos. 1 to 25, with the first-place team receiving 25 points and the last-place team receiving one. For control, the highest and lowest outlying ranking for each team on the ballot was removed. First-place votes were not tallied. This week's poll includes 15 voters, making the maximum number of points available 300.

 

The 2022 voting panel included votes from the following representatives: Casey Angle (former Intercollegiate Tennis Association Director of Championships); Virgil Christian (former USTA director of college tennis); Richard Croome (former journalist); Sonny Dearth (Daily Press; Newport News, Va.); Judy Dixon (former UMass women’s head coach); Alex Gruskin (Cracked Racquets); Chris Halioris / Matt Stachowiak (Cracked Racquets); J. Webb Horton (Former Florida Gulf Coast men's head coach); Granger Huntress (Texas College Tennis); Andy Katz (NCAA.com); Bobby Knight (College Tennis Today); Brandon Moglen (Tennis Channel); Lisa Stone (Parenting Aces); Caitlin Thompson (Racquet); Scott Treibly (USTA contractor); Laura Vallverdu (Between Lines); Dallas Oliver/Shannon Wrege (Tennis Recruiting Network).
