LOS ANGELES — The Occidental men's and women's tennis teams both finished the 2017-18 season ranked in the top 20 in the ITA West Region Rankings.

The Oxy men were No. 16 and the women were No. 18 in the final poll of the season.

"I'm really excited for both teams to end on a high note with a regional ranking," said first-year head coach Rachel Manasse said. "The men were bumped out in the last ranking which was disappointing, but after beating Chapman they jumped up to a year-end high. I'm excited the men came up with a strong finish and the women were consistent throughout the year."

Oxy senior women's standout Samantha Farrell made the individual top 20, ranking No. 19.

 "Sam is a stud," Manasse said. "This was her best year and I'm so proud she finished with a personal-best ranking. She was beating players this year who she's never taken down and I'm so thrilled for her."
