SKILLMAN, N.J. – The Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) released its latest run of national and regional rankings recently, with Georgia College women’s tennis (13-11) keeping a No. 19 ranking in the nation.

The Bobcats once again were No. 19 in the country, with a No. 4 Southeast Region ranking.

All-Peach Belt Conference (PBC) honoree Lisa Setyon-Ortenzio (Paris) was listed as the No. 20 ranked individual player in the Southeast Region, while teammate May Johnson (Sydney, Australia) earned the No. 15 spot.

The Bobcats have wrapped up a 2012 season that saw GC go 13-11, earn the No. 5-seed in the PBC Tournament, and eventually fall in the Southeast Region semifinal. The Bobcats put Setyon-Ortenzio and Kayla Barksdale (Augusta, Ga.) on the All-PBC second team in doubles and added a second team singles nod for Setyon-Ortenzio as well. The GC women have now made 18 straight trips to the NCAA Tournament.
