Ranking Redux, Part II

Part Two of this Ranking Redux series delves into the high school seniors from the Class of 2006. With two full seasons of college tennis under their collective belts, there is quite a bit of data to sift through and compare.

To quickly review the findings from Part One, the Top 30 players in the TennisRecruiting Network rankings from Class of 2007 had 12 players achieve ITA rankings at some point during their freshmen years, with nine appearing in the final rankings. In addition, the class averaged a 68% dual match winning percentage.

Of the TRN Top 10, seven of the ten were among the nine players ranked at the end of the year; the two who broke in were Kelcy McKenna of Arizona State (who jumped from TRN #11 to become the 2nd highest ranked freshman) and Anamika Bhargava of Pepperdine (who was TRN #22 as a senior and the 7th highest ranked freshman at the end of the season).

Moving to the Class of 2006, 17 of the players in the TRN Top 30 college-bound seniors appeared in the ITA rankings at least once during their freshman year, and 13 were in the final rankings. Only six of the thirty players spent the majority of time playing at #5 or #6 in the lineup, a significant difference from the Class of 2007. By their sophomore season, 24 of the original TRN Top 30 seniors were still playing college tennis. Of these 24 players, 19 appeared in the ITA rankings at least once during the sophomore campaign and 17 were in the year end rankings.

Looking at the charts below, the word "difference" indicates a change from final TRN ranking and where they stand at the end of each college season compared to their classmates, a "+" indicating an improvement from their senior year standing and a "-" indicating a drop.
