EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State's women's tennis head coach Erica Perkins announced her 2008 recruiting class' early signee on Nov. 14, Dana Guentert of Lilburn, Ga.
"We couldn't be more thrilled to be signing Dana Guentert," said Perkins. "Dana is a tremendous student and a tough competitor on the tennis court. Her drive, work ethic, and desire to improve will make her a great college tennis player. And what's even more exciting is that Dana is coming home. Born in Lansing, it was evident early in the recruiting process that she is a Spartan through and through."
Guentert, a five-star recruit on tennisrecruiting.net., has earned a 44-29 record while training at the Hobson Performance Tennis Academy with coach Ashley Hobson. Guentert currently ranks 61st among high school seniors while she sits at 155th nationally and 22nd in the South. In recent tournament action, Guentert won her first two rounds at the National Hard Courts in Berkeley, Calif., as well as her first two rounds at the National Clay Courts in Memphis, Tenn.
Guentert, whose mother played tennis for Bowling Green, is the daughter of Jim and Linda Guentert.
