Delaware Doubles Duo of Perez and Kent Ranked No. 39 by ITA

The University of Delaware men’s tennis doubles team of senior Camilo Perez (at right) and freshman Ryan Kent was recently selected as one of 10 teams to tie for the No. 39 national ranking by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association, the governing body of collegiate tennis.

The duo compiled a 5-0 record during fall competition headed by a perfect 4-0 performance at the Old Dominion Collegiate Open with wins over doubles teams from NJIT, Morgan State, William & Mary and Campbell. The team’s fifth win came over a Monmouth doubles squad at the Lehigh Invitational in October.

The Stanford team of Bradley Klahn and Ryan Thacher ranked first in the Jan. 5 poll, while Perez and Kent were joined in the No. 39 spot by teams from Central Florida, California, Wright State, Drake, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Georgetown, East Tennessee State and North Florida.

The Blue Hens will resume play on Feb. 13 with a dual meet at the College of New Jersey.
