"Maggie Crumbliss is a dream player for a coach. She gives 100% in every match and at every practice. Sewanee is getting a great student-athlete."
-- Baylor girls tennis coach Dustin Kane
With a region title-clinching win against GPS Tuesday and an acceptance letter from the Univ. of the South coming last Friday, it's been a great last few days for Baylor senior tennis player Maggie Crumbliss.
"I am so excited to be accepted at Sewanee as this has been my first choice since last year," said Crumbliss, 18, who holds a 3.8 PGA and plans to study pre-med in college. "I look forward to playing college tennis next year."
Crumbliss is going from one national level program to another as the Red Raiders have won three state titles and three DecoTurf national tournaments with victories against state champs from Fla. and Georgia, while the Sewanee women's net program has nine NCAA D-III Top 10 finishes, numerous All-Americans and student-athletes who earn Phi Beta Kappa honors.
"Maggie is reliable, hard working, extremely coachable and is focused in all she does," said Baylor girls coach Dustin Kane. "She totally maximizes her abilities."
She continues the impressive Baylor-Sewanee tennis connection from the late Alex Guerry in the 1930s to All-American Pat Guerry in the late 1980s to current Sewanee player Eric Roddy and now Crumbliss.
