FORT COLLINS, Colo.--The Colorado State women's tennis program finished the 2013 season with the nation's ninth-best attendance average for its home matches. The Rams ranked in the top 10 for the entire season, ranking as high as No. 5 in the March reporting period.
CSU ended up with an average attendance of 159 for its four home matches.
"We want our fans to know how much we appreciate their support at our home matches," said head coach Jon Messick. "Because of them, our matches are special events that inspire and motivate our players on the court. We thoroughly enjoy our connection with the strong tennis community in the Northern Colorado area."
The Rams' spring schedule was impacted by weather, which moved one match indoors and another to the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, removing it from the attendance count.
Messick's young team improved steadily as the season progressed, putting forth strongly competitive performances in the season's final month against nationally-ranked teams in the Mountain West. The Rams, who finished 5-16, defeated New Mexico in the first round of the Mountain West tournament before falling to the nation's 39th-ranked team, San Diego State. Freshman Abby Stevens earned All-Mountain West honors with an overall record of 19-12 in her first season of intercollegiate competition.
Georgia led the nation with an average home attendance of 259, followed by Texas A&M (244), Michigan (243), Florida (227) and Baylor (220) to round out the top five.
