LSU tennis ranked 24th nationally
BATON ROUGE - The LSU men's tennis team checked in at No. 24 in the preseason rankings released Thursday by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA).
The Tigers wrapped up last season as the nation's 25th-ranked team, and after a successful fall LSU will open the 2013 dual season one spot higher.
LSU returns five letterwinners from last year's squad, including four seniors in Roger Anderson, Olivier Borsos, Mark Bowtell and Stefan Szacinski as well as sophomore Chris Simpson.
