BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - The Auburn women’s tennis team was picked to finished fifth in the annual Southeastern Conference coaches’ preseason poll, the league announced Wednesday.

Auburn received 138 points in the preseason poll, voted on by the women’s tennis head coach at each institution and is based on a 14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 vote.

The Tigers join eight other league teams ranked in the top-25 of the preseason Oracle/ITA team rankings. No. 14 Auburn joins No. 2 Vanderbilt, No. 3 Florida, No. 4 Georgia, No. 15 South Carolina, No. 18 Arkansas, No. 21 Kentucky, No. 22 LSU and No. 23 Ole Miss.
