Utah State Women's Tennis Signs Four-Star Recruit
Nov. 21, 2013
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's tennis coach Sean McInerney recently completed his first recruiting class at USU, and included in the class is current high school senior Sabrina Demerath.
Demerath will begin her USU career in the Fall of 2014 when she comes to Logan from Inglemoor High School in Kenmore, Wash., where she is ranked as the top senior in the state.
Since 2010, Demerath has improved her national ranking more than 300 spots, finishing her high school career in the top 150 in the country. Her 21 wins over other four-star recruits in the last year helped her improve her ranking.
"Sabrina is going to a great student-athlete here at USU," McInerney said. "Over the past three years, she has really shown amazing growth as a player, and I really feel that she is going to make another huge leap as a college player. She has a great personality and is going to be a great teammate; I am very excited that she chose USU."
After a visit to the campus, Demerath knew Utah State was the school she was looking for.
"I chose Utah State University because I loved the campus," Demerath said. "I thought all the buildings and athletic centers were amazing. I also loved the women's tennis team. I thought I had a great connection with all the girls there as well as coach Sean. During my visit, I had a great feeling about the town and school and by then end of the visit I knew that Utah State University would be a great fit for me."
Demerath hopes to contribute right away, carrying on a recent tradition of strong starts by freshmen. So far this year, freshmen have contributed 13 singles wins.
Demerath hasn't decided on a major yet, but is looking into the engineering and business programs at Utah State.
