Ben Gajardo/Jack Barnett Doubles Ranking - March 31

PROVO, Utah — BYU men's tennis doubles pair Ben Gajardo and Jack Barnett entered the Oracle ITA Division 1 Men's Doubles Rankings on Tuesday, coming in at #71.

It is the first time that the Cougars have had been ranked since senior Sean Hill was ranked #98 in the Oracle ITA Men's Singles Preseason Rankings. 

The Intercollegiate Tennis Association uses a computer rankings system to rank the top 80 doubles teams in the country. This is the second week that doubles rankings have been released since the Preseason Rankings. There will be four more releases this season, with the final rankings scheduled to come out on April 27.

Barnett and Gajardo have played together in the No. 1 spot during the month of March. They are off to a 5-0 start this season, including a 7-5 win over the then Oracle/ITA ranked No. 55 doubles pair James Watt and Boris Reckow of Saint Mary's, last weekend. Leading the Cougars with the best doubles winning percentage, the pair also has 6-3, 6-4, 6-3 and 6-2 victories on the year.
