PHILADELPHIA – The pairs of Karla Miletic and Abbygail Gamarnik and Nathan Nguyen and Borna Novak were both featured in the 2017-18 Oracle/Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division II Women's Collegiate East Region Rankings released on Wednesday.

Notably, Miletic was also voted the No. 5 women's tennis player in the East Region, which features 30 teams from the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC), East Coast Conference (ECC) and Northeast 10 Conference (NE10). She was the highest ranked player from the CACC.

The first repeat CACC Women's Tennis Player of the Year since 2011-12, Miletic completed her second straight unbeaten CACC regular season at 7-0 this fall. She is now a perfect 15-0 in her CACC career, with all 15 wins coming at No. 1 singles.

For the fall, the sophomore led University of the Sciences at 11-2 overall, which included a 9-1 mark in dual play. She advanced to the Quarterfinals of the ITA East Regionals before falling in a heartbreaking three-setter.

Both duos were ranked No. 10 by the ITA.

Miletic also advanced to the Quarterfinals of the ITA East Regionals in the doubles draw with Gamarnik, as the two won three matches together. They went a combined 10-6 together as the Devils' No. 1 pair during the fall.

Nguyen and Novak also won multiple matches at the ITA East Regionals, advancing to the Round of 16. They won twice before falling to the second seeded team. That was their only loss of the fall as the two combined to go 3-0 in dual play to improve to 5-1 overall.
