CHARLOTTESVILLE - Virginia is ranked a program-best No. 3 in this week's ITA Women's Tennis Rankings, announced by the ITA Tuesday (Feb. 25). The No. 3 ranking surpasses Virginia's No. 6 ranking in 2012.

The Cavaliers (7-2) made the biggest jump in the team rankings, moving up 10 places from No. 13 to No. 3 after upsetting top-ranked Duke (5-2) and winning at No. 62 Boston College (6-1).
