BATON ROUGE -- After racking up three victories this past weekend, including a ranked win over then No. 12 Texas A&M, the LSU men's tennis team climbed 11 spots in the ITA rankings up to No. 17, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced earlier today.
 
LSU (6-2) put together a strong weekend of play, highlighted by their 4-3 upset over the No. 12 Aggies (7-5).
 
The Tigers opened the weekend with a 7-0 shutout of Tulane and capped off the weekend with a 6-1 victory over the UNO Privateers.
 
After defeating Texas A&M's 15th-ranked Alexis Klegou, junior Olivier Borsos jumped back into the standings for the Tigers, earning the 66th spot in the nation.
 
In doubles, the LSU duo of Chris Simpson and Borsos remained in the rankings, falling a couple spots to No. 38.
 
Georgia (No. 6), Kentucky (No. 9), Florida (No. 10), Auburn (No. 12), Mississippi State (No. 14) and South Carolina (No. 22) also made the top-25 for the SEC.
 
LSU's next match will take place on Friday at 3 p.m. when the Tigers host their first SEC opponent of the season, No. 9 Kentucky.
