Spring Star Ratings Period Starts This Week
by Dallas Oliver, 9 January 2017
|Share: || || |
One of the most popular features at TennisRecruiting.net is its Star Ratings - sometimes known as "The Stars". These ratings are basically coarse rankings, where the highest-ranked players are tabbed as Blue Chips, the next group is the Five Stars, and so on.
These ratings are updated twice per year in the Fall and Spring. Our next update to the Star Ratings - the Spring Star Ratings - is scheduled to come out in early March.
Ratings Period Dates
These ratings are based on players' rankings on the Class Rankings (boys, girls).
The Spring Star Ratings are based on players' highest rankings during the next eight weeks - from the week of January 9 to the week of February 27, 2017. You can see the relationship of ranking to rating on our Star Ratings FAQ.
What does this mean for players and parents? The rankings - and hence the ratings - are only as accurate as the player records. We ask players and parents to review their player records to ensure accurate ratings.
Access to player records is normally a Recruiting Advantage feature at the website. But for the next eight weeks, complete player records are available to all players and parents who link their accounts to their profiles.
Note that no payment is required - it is free to link your account to your profile. All you have to do is answer a few brief security questions to verify your identity.

Cutoffs for Ratings
The cutoffs for each rating level are shown below by graduation year and gender:
|Class ||Gender ||Blue Chip
||5-Star ||4-Star ||3-Star ||2-Star |
Note: When checking your player record, there are some questions about how defaults, withdrawals, and walkovers are handled. A default, withdrawal, or walkover where there is no score should be recorded on the player record with an asterisk (*) attached. This means that these matches do not count in the TennisRecruiting.net ranking system. If you see a "Def," a "Wd," or a "Wo" recorded on your record and there is not an asterisk attached, this is a mistake. If a match has started and retirement (Ret) or default (Def) is affixed to the score, then these matches do count for ranking - except when it a 15-0 retirement required by the section to avoid penalty points.

Virginia Wins ITA National Indoor Team Title
When you think of teams that are really great at playing indoor
tennis, the top two that would come to most people's minds are
Virginia and Ohio State. Coming into the ITA National Team Indoors,
Virginia and Ohio State had made a combined 11 finals appearances over
the previous 12 years, so it shouldn't have been a surprise when they
stood on opposite sides of the net on Monday morning. In the end, the
Cavaliers brought home the hardware.
Florida Women Claim First ITA National Indoors Title Since 1999
For sixteen of the best women's college tennis teams in the country,

No. 1 Florida Gators, a win in New Haven, Connecticut, achieved a new
first. Thornqvist won his first-ever NTI championship - and UF won
its first title since 1999.
