Caulfield among Fords honored in ITA preseason rankings

SKILLMAN, N.J. – Senior Kevin Caulfield of Haverford College's men's tennis team has cracked the preseason top-25 for singles in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's fall release of Division III national and regional rankings. Caulfied is 22nd in the country and sixth in the Atlantic South Region.

The Fords, Centennial Conference tournament qualifiers six of the past seven springs, are eighth on the preseason Atlantic South list recently released by the ITA.

Joining Caulfield within regional rankings are doubles partner Danny Himelstein, with the duo ranked 11th, and Luis Acaba who is 17th on the Atlantic South singles list.

November's preseason ITA rankings are based on the fall ITA regionals which took place in October.

Caulfield played into the semifinals of the championship singles bracket in October's regional at the University of Mary Washington. He and Himelstein made it into the quarterfinal round of the championship doubles bracket before faltering.

Acaba, a freshman, made it into the singles championship bracket's round of 16 in his first visit to the regional.

Haverrford kicks off the spring schedule on February 27 when the Stevens Institute of Technology visits for a non-conference match.
