RUSTON - Louisiana Tech's Joanna Nalborska has been ranked 15th in the ITA Division I Southern Region rankings, released today by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association.
The sophomore is coming off an impressive fall season where she advanced to the singles finals of three different tournaments, taking home the flight one singles at the NSU Lady Demon Fall Invite.
The Warsaw, Poland native also reached the Round of 16 at the ITA Southern Regionals with back-to-back straight set wins, 6-0, 6-1 over Ariel Morton of LSU and 6-2, 6-3 over Marija Milutinovic of Ole Miss.
Nalborska put up a strong fight versus Erin Routliffe of Alabama, currently ranked No. 3 in the Southern Region, but fell 6-4, 6-4.
Last spring, she was named first team All-WAC in singles (No. 2) and doubles (No. 2) and selected as the Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year, finishing with an 11-2 record in dual singles and a perfect 7-0 in conference play.
Nalborska will anchor the Lady Techster squad going into the 2014 spring season under new head coach Chad Camper.
