DALLAS (SMU) - SMU's Edyta Cieplucha is ranked No. 34 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) preseason rankings. The senior finished last season ranked No. 55.

"Edyta had a phenomenal season last spring with wins over top-20 players in the nation," said head coach Kati Gyulai. "We are proud of her achievements and we look for her to continue climbing the rankings and to contend for a national championship."

Last season, Cieplucha went 18-9 against a challenging schedule that included 10 matches against ranked opponents. She advanced to the ITA Regional quarterfinals in singles and the semifinals in doubles. She was later named First-Team All-Conference USA and earned C-USA Player of the Week honors on March 6. Cieplucha's biggest win was a 6-4, 6-1 triumph versus No. 20 Kristi Boxx of Ole Miss.
