LAWRENCE, Kan. - University of Kansas freshman Ksenia Bukina has been ranked 79th in the nation in the initial Fila Collegiate Tennis Singles Rankings, administered by the ITA.
The Obninsk, Russia native was also tabbed as the No. 14 singles player in the Central Region by the ITA in December.
"This is not only a great way for Ksenia to start her season, but a great way for the team to start as well," head coach Amy Hall-Holt said. "It is especially impressive considering she is just a freshman and has not had that much collegiate experience yet."
Bukina had a solid fall season for Kansas, posting a 7-6 singles record and defeating 30th ranked and top-seeded Maja Kovacek of New Mexico in the ITA Central Regionals.
Kansas will open its season on Jan. 22 with matches against both Ball State and Indiana in Bloomington.
