Utah State Women's Tennis Completes 2014 Recruiting Class
Nov. 26, 2013
LOGAN, Utah - Utah State women's tennis head coach Sean McInerney announced the signing of four-star recruit Meghan Lyall to complete his first recruiting class at Utah State.
Lyall comes to Utah State from Mesa, Ariz., where she was the No. 2-ranked senior in the state to go along with a No. 146 national ranking. Lyall will join the team for the fall of 2014. Lyall found team chemistry important when deciding on Utah State.
"I chose Utah State because of the atmosphere," Lyall said. "Not only is it a beautiful campus surrounded by mountains, but the team and Coach McInerney really make it inviting. I found I was instantly welcomed onto the team, and we all got along. Everyone on the team has their own personality, and everyone can really be themselves at practice or when they are just hanging out."
The high level of competition Lyall has had during her high school career has helped establish her as an important player for Utah State's women's tennis team as it moves forward into the Mountain West Conference.
"Meghan is a very good player and athlete," McInerney said. "She has done a great job the last couple of years developing her game to be an immediate impact player in our program. She is a very intelligent young woman who is going to thrive not only athletically, but academically as well. She wants to take her game to the next level, and I think she will do just that at USU."
Lyall had the support of her parents in her choice to attend Utah State and compete under coach McInerney.
"Her dad and I were both very excited about the connection she made with Coach McInerney, the team and Utah State," said Lyall's mother. "We felt from the beginning that he was the right coach for her, one who would push her, and that Utah State was the right program, one where she could contribute right from the start. We know Meghan is looking forward to playing a valuable role at Utah State, and we believe the Utah State academic program and tennis program will serve her well."
The Aggies begin the spring season on January 31, when they travel to Chicago to face Chicago State.
