Tachibana and Norton Ranked In ITA Preason Poll

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The Harvard women's tennis team's  top doubles pair of Kristin Norton and Hideko Tachibana was recently ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's national preseason rankings.

The tandem of senior captains is ranked 37th in the preseason poll, which is second-best in the Ivy League behind Penn's team of Julianna Rodin and Agustina Sol Eskenazi.

The 2012 second team All-Ivy selections finished second in the A Flight of the Columbia Invitational last weekend to kickoff Harvard's fall schedule. Norton and Tachibana will return to action Oct. 4 at the Riviera/ITA Women's All-American Championship in Pacific Palisades, Calif.
