Team USA’s Todd Harrity and Chris Hanson rise to their highest-career PSA Tour world rankings in December, world No. 52 and world No. 71 respectively.

Harrity’s ranking factors in reaching his largest final in mid-November—the $25, 000 President’s Gold Cup in Pakistan—and his best finish in the Men’s World Championship in Bellevue, Washington, where he upset world No. 34 Alan Clyne to reach the round of thirty-two.

Harrity, who won his first U.S. national title in March, now displaces 2013 U.S. Champion Chris Gordon, who dropped three places to Harrity’s November ranking of world No. 61 this month, as the highest-ranked American male.

Hanson went ten better than his previous career high of world No. 81 in October, moving up to world No. 71 based on his performances in the RC Pro Series, World Championship, and Edmonton Open in November.

On the women’s side, Team USA’s No. 1 Amanda Sobhy and No. 2 Olivia Blatchford retain their November rankings of world No. 11 and world No. 36 respectively.
