PULLMAN, Wash.- The Washington State women's tennis team signed two players for the 2001-2002 season, head coach Cari Groce announced Friday.
The signees are Bojana Damjanovic (Novi Sad, Yugoslavia) and Zsofi Fodor (Pecs, Hungary). Both players will enter WSU as freshman in the fall.
Damjanovic, who is enrolled at Jovan Vukonovic School in Novi Sad, is currently ranked #3 in the Yugoslavian Girl's 18 Division. She trains with the Yugoslavian national team, and has competed with the team throughout Europe, as well as the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida.
"We are thrilled to have a player of Bojana's quality come to WSU," Groce said. "She brings great credentials and solid international playing experience to the program."
No stranger to Cougar tennis, Fodor competed against former Cougars Andrea Reisz ('99) and Tunde Nagy ('97) in international tournaments.
Fodor is currently enrolled at Janus Pannonius High in Pecs. She is ranked 5th nationally in the Hungarian Girl's 18 Division and 53rd nationally in the Women's Division.
"To have Zsofi join the Cougars is awesome," Groce said. "She possesses a very great game and her ranking in Hungary proves her level of play. Andrea played her in summer tourneys and was very impressed, and she certainly knows the level of play in the Pac-10. Her experience will add depth to our current freshman class, making us stronger."
