UTEP’s Kulicke Earns ITA National Ranking

UTEP women’s tennis player Vivienne Kulicke was ranked among the top college tennis players for this week’s edition of the Intercollegiate Tennis Association rankings. Kulicke received a No. 107 ranking in the nation for singles play.

“Vivienne has worked tirelessly on her game and has developed immensely in the last three semesters that I have coached her,” head coach Roberto Aspillaga said. “I am proud of her for breaking in the rankings but I am even more proud of how much she has improved as a competitor. There is no doubt that she will continue to get better.”

Since her arrival at UTEP, Kulicke has made a tremendous impact on the team. The sophomore currently holds a team-best 5-2 record in singles, including a 1-2 record when facing ranked opponents. Her best performance this season has been against No. 36 Desirae Krawczyk from No. 24 Arizona State (1/29), where Kulicke came out with a 7-5, 0-6, 10-8 victory.

The Hamburg, Germany native has also registered a 1-3 record when paired with junior Duda Santos in doubles competition.

It has been 10 years since a Miner cracked the ITA rankings. Weronika Bloczynska was the last to make the cut (12/13/2006), when she was given a No. 28 ranking in the ITA Southwest Region rankings.
