BATON ROUGE --- Senior Ryann Foster is ranked as the No. 64 singles player in the country and the No. 30 doubles tandem along with teammate Kennan Johnson in the Oracle/ITA preseason rankings released Tuesday.

Foster is up 46 spots from her No. 110 singles ranking to end the 2016-17 season and remains in the top 30 in doubles with a new partner in Johnson.

Foster and Joana Valle Costa ended last season as the No. 16-ranked doubles pairing after reaching the semifinals of the NCAA Division I Women’s Doubles Championships.
