UTC Tennis Recruits In Top-25 Mid-Major List
Saturday, June 16, 2018
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s tennis program made the Top-25 Mid-Major recruiting list released by TennisRecruiting.net this week. Head coach Chad Camper inked three players to National Letters of Intent for the 2018-19 season, giving the Mocs the No. 21-ranked group.
“We are very excited that TennisRecruiting.net has voted us into its Top 25 Mid-Major Recruiting Class,” stated Camper. “The team has made huge strides in the last couple of years and these top recruits will only add to our program’s improvements.”
Joining the Mocs in the fall are Polina Goloputova (Astana, Kazakhstan), Lily Holmes (Florence, Ala.) and Anna Didkovskaya (Kiev, Ukraine).
“Recruiting is the lifeblood of all sports and it is very competitive,” added Camper. “We feel we have a beautiful university and an accomplished tennis program that can bring in some of the greatest players in the world to UTC.”
Goloputova is a top-10 player in her division in Kazakhstan, while Holmes has a four-star rating from TennisRecruiting.net. Didkovskaya won a national tournament last summer in Ukraine.
The Mocs are replacing two seniors from last year’s team that was 10-8 and finished fourth in the Southern conference at 4-3.
Chattanooga is one of two Southern Conference teams in the ranking, joining Furman who had the No.
