TEMPE, Ariz. – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) released its latest round of Oracle/ITA Division II Men's Collegiate Tennis Rankings Wednesday, with Georgia College (12-5) ranking at No. 18, moving up from No. 19 the previous week.
Senior Robin Möller (Hamburg, Germany) comes in nationally-ranked for singles at No. 14. Möller plays in the top slot for the Bobcats and owns a 14-2 mark, with five matches coming against other nationally-ranked players.
Möller joins junior Matt Rogel (Sautron, France) as they rank No. 2 for doubles, jumping up from No. 7 the previous week. This is the highest ranking for a Bobcats Men's doubles team since the 2008-09 season when Erick Siqueira and Justin Pickham earned the No. spot.
Georgia College joins seven other Peach Belt Conference (PBC) teams with Columbus State University leading the rankings at No. 2. Also above the Bobcats are USC Aiken, Lander University, Flagler College, and the University of North Georgia, ranking Nos. 6, 7, 9, and 14, respectively. The Bobcats rank above both Francis Marion University and Augusta University, who come in at Nos. 27 and 50, respectively.
The Bobcats have one nationally-ranked PBC team left to face this season, along with taking on No. 5 Wingate University.
