GREELEY – Northern Colorado Women’s Tennis Head Coach Brenda Vlasak today announced the addition of two players to her roster for the 2013-14 season.
Vlasak opened a pipeline of British tennis players six years ago when she recruited Jenny Whateley and the tradition continued this year with the addition of Beth Coton from Bolton, Blistl, England.
Vlasak and assistant coach Mandy Preuss are also pleased to welcome Marissa Baca to the Bears’ tennis family.
"We are extremely excited about the addition of Beth Coton and Marissa Baca to our program,” Vlasak said. “They are exactly the kind of players we want on our team and know they will fit in immediately.”

Both Coton and Baca will enroll at Northern Colorado in the fall, 2013.
