WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - The Wake Forest women's tennis team's 2015 recruiting class was ranked as the seventh-best in the country by the Tennis Recruiting Network, marking the highest recruiting class ranking in program history since Tennisrecruiting.net has been ranking the recruiting classes since the class of 2006.

The 2015 class of Anna Ulyashchenko and Emma Davis topped the eighth-best ranking in the spring of 2013, which included the current sophomore class. This is also the fourth year in a row that the Demon Deacons are ranked in the top-25.

"We are excited to have our fall 2015 incoming class recognized as one of the most impactful in the country," said head coach Jeff Wyshner. "Anna and Emma are great talents who are going to be great college players and great Demon Deacons. They, like all our players, will have to work hard to continue to develop their games to have the highest level of success at the collegiate level, but I know they are committed to doing the work they need to do."

Ulyashchenko, currently a five-star recruit, has been top-50 and a five star recruit every year since 2011 and after a very strong summer, she has now reached a personal best ranking of No. 22 in the national ranking and No. 2 in New York as part of the class of 2015, which puts her in position to potentially improve from a five-star to a blue chip recruit in the next rating.

Davis, also a five-star recruit, is rated as the top-ranked player in Massachusetts, and top three in the New England section. She has been a winner of multiple USTA singles/doubles tournaments, such as sectionals, regionals and nationals since 2009.

 

 

"Top-10 recruiting classes lead to having top-10 teams, especially when you combine more than one of them as we will with next year's team since our class of 2013 was top-10 as well," added coach Wyshner. "We are better this year than we have been in several years, and with only one senior graduating, we believe we can continue to improve next year as well."

Wake Forest is back in action on Saturday, Feb. 7, as they host a doubleheader against VCU and Elon. The Deacons will face the Rams at 10 a.m. and the Phoenix at 3 p.m. at the Wake Forest Tennis Complex.
