COLUMBIA, S.C. — The South Carolina women’s tennis team will begin the 2010 season ranked No. 17 in the nation according to the Campbell/ITA College Tennis Rankings. Senior Ana Marija Zubori is ranked 38th in the singles poll, while sophomore Anya Morgina is 69th.

The Gamecocks finished the 2009 campaign ranked 17th as well after reaching the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship. South Carolina had a 17-11 record overall and finished fifth in the SEC’s Eastern Division with a 6-5 mark.

Zubori went 12-3 during the fall and enters the spring just four wins shy of picking up the 100th of her career. She stands to become the third player in school history to reach the century mark. Zubori is a three-time All-SEC selection and has been named the team’s MVP twice during her career.

Morgina, a newcomer during the fall after transferring from Indiana State, had a 5-4 slate in her first semester as a Gamecock. She recorded a key victory at the Furman Fall Classic when she defeated Catherine Newman from Vanderbilt in three sets. Newman was ranked No. 46 during the fall and is No. 31 to start the spring.

South Carolina gets its schedule started Tuesday, Jan. 26, when it hosts Furman at 5 p.m. at the Indoor Field House.
