GREELEY -- Lindsey Bennett signed her National Letter of Intent to come to Greeley, Colo., and play with the Northern Colorado women's tennis team in 2014-15.

"Lindsey will be a great addition to our program," Head Coach Brenda Vlasak said. "She has a great attitude towards life and is very hardworking on and off the court. She is a talented tennis player that has a bright future ahead of her in college tennis and I can't wait to see her perform."

Bennett, as the lone recruit of Vlasak's 2014-15 early signing class, played varsity tennis under coaches Erica Dopson and Brandon Justiss. She comes to UNC after playing tennis at Liberty High School in Frisco, Texas. Bennett made her impact at LHS while recording an overall singles win/loss record of 164-14 (.921) and a doubles record of 62-15 (.805). She was ranked as high as No. 8 in the Texas class of 2014 and as a 4-star recruit by TennisRecruiting.net.

The Texas native was one of the best talents in the area as she was named team and district MVP all four years at LHS. She is a two-time University Interscholastic League 4A singles district and regional champion. Bennett was also a UIL state semifinalist twice and a quarterfinalist once. She was named team captain during her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons at LHS.
