CHARLOTTESVILLE - The Virginia women's tennis team's 2006 recruiting class was ranked the nation's top class on Friday as tennisrecruiting.net announced its media poll. The Cavaliers received six of the nine first place votes from the panel to take the top spot in the rankings.
The class was the first recruiting class at Virginia for head coach Mark Guilbeau, who was named the 2006 ACC Coach of the Year in his first season in Charlottesville.
The Cavaliers' 2006 class is headlined by two players ranked as blue chip recruits by tennisrecruiting.net.
