This made me curious which school holds the record for most former #1's exiting.
This distinction belongs to Long Beach State.
Da Beach sets another infamous national record.
1. Jaklin Alawi - former #1 exits LBS in 2011-12
2. Alena Kovalchuk - former #1 exits LBS in 2003-04
3. Anastasia Dvornikova - former #1 exits LBS in 2002-03
All these players were juniors with 2 years eligibility left.
Anything to add Form?
Form words of wisdom.
Let us review the 'former # 1' record for Mr. Agenda:
2000 - current # 1 Maureen Diaz transfers out after just one season.
2010 - head coach sacrifices his injured '# 1' playing her unethically in a cast for 4 matches... and the poor young lady then misses 50 consecutive weeks of tennis before she is cleared to even hit another ball. This horrid act of irresponsibilty for the poor girl's welfare likely makes her forever the 'former # 1'.
