PULLMAN, Wash. - Washington State University Head Coach Lisa Hart has signed Grace Lymer-Sullivan to a Financial Aid Agreement, it was announced Wednesday.
Lymer-Sullivan, a native of Oxford in the United Kingdom, plans to enroll for the start of the fall semester, 2014.
"Grace has played at a very high level during her junior career and will be a great addition to our program,” said Hart. “Having been at another university I believe she will make a very quick transition to college life in Pullman and will have the opportunity to contribute immediately for the Cougars."
Lymer-Sullivan spent the fall of 2013 at Sacramento State University but did not participate in a match. She will arrive at Washington State as a redshirt freshman with four years of eligibility remaining. As a junior player, she was county champion in singles and doubles throughout all age divisions and won the Centre Parks National Championship in the U12. She received an ITF ranking at age 13 and was a member of Great Britain’s European Championship team in 2009. She received an academic scholarship to attend the Win Tennis Academy during her high school career.
“I am thrilled to be signing with Washington State to become a Cougar,” said Lymer-Sullivan. “As soon as I met Coach Hart I knew Washington State was a great fit for me, and I am so excited to be coached by her and play alongside everyone on the team. I am really proud to be playing for such a great university and cannot wait for it all to begin this August!”
