ATLANTA – Georgia State took the No. 65 spot in the final Top-75 Oracle/ITA Division I men’s tennis rankings, the organization announced Wednesday evening.
The Panthers, who claimed the Sun Belt’s inaugural Regular Season Championship in 2019, finished the season with a 17-10 overall mark after falling to South Alabama in the SBC Tournament Finals 4-1. Despite the loss, GSU’s 17 wins were tied for the fifth-most team wins in a single season in program history.
Georgia State ended the year with an 8-2 record in its final 10 matches, including a 6-1 mark in league play. Giles Hussey and Jack MacFarlane collected First Team All-Conference honors for doubles after ending the dual season 13-7 overall, including 9-4 at the No. 1 position and 3-0 against nationally ranked opponents.
Individually, Hussey and Vazha Shubladze earned Second Team All-Conference honors in singles competition. Shubladze, who was also named Sun Belt Newcomer of the Year, finished the year with a 9-6 mark in singles before his season was cut short due to injury.
Head coach Jonathan Wolff has led the Panthers to a 31-21 overall record and 8-2 conference record in his first two seasons at the helm, including a Sun Belt Regular Season Title in 2019. He will look to guide GSU to its third SBC Tournament Championship and eighth NCAA Tournament appearance in 2020.
