- Constantin Schmitz (Tulane University)
- Lucas Gerch (Oklahoma State University)
- Oliver Frank (Azusa Pacific University)
The sophomore from Neumarkt began his collegiate tennis career by winning his first 10 matches. The first five won him the ITA Division II West Regional Championship which qualified him to compete at the ITA Oracle Cup. Frank proceeded to win the Division II Oracle Cup by defeating three top 15 opponents then he won the All-Division Oracle Cup by defeating the top ranked player at the NAIA and JUCO levels. Frank was the only non-Division I participant at the National Indoor Intercollegiates which is the top indoor event on the fall calendar. Frank is currently 12-0 in dual-match play and he is the top ranked player in the latest ITA Division II singles rankings.
- Lena Ruppert (Oklahoma State University)
- Lena Lutzeier (Armstrong State University)
The junior from Blaustein has been a force at the top of the ASU lineup for the last three years. Lutzeier is a two-time ITA All-American in singles and doubles and is the reigning Peach Belt Conference Player of the Year. In her first two seasons, Lutzeier was an awe-inspiring 54-4 in singles while also going 74-6 in doubles. This past fall Lutzeier won the ITA Division II Southeast Regional Championship which earned her a berth into the coveted ITA Oracle Cup. Lutzeier’s dual-match dominance has continued this year as she is currently 17-1 in singles and 18-1 in doubles. Lutzeier is currently ranked No. 5 in singles and No. 3 in doubles in the latest ITA Division II singles and doubles rankings.
10. Sophia Geier (University of Akron)
The junior from Burgebrach began her collegiate career near the bottom of the singles lineup but now she has became a mainstay at the top with wins becoming the norm. Geier went 27-10 in singles last season including 19-7 in dual-match play while splitting time between No. 1 and No. 2. This past fall Geier won her first seven matches and went undefeated at both the Akron Shootout and the Cleveland State Viking Invitational. Geier dropped her dual-match opener against Northwestern but since then she has won 17 straight matches, all at No. 1, while only dropping one set. There is a pretty big gap between No. 1 and No. 2 in the men’s ratings so the question is will someone else rise to the occasion and challenge Constantin Schmitz for the top spot next year?
