Lenoir-Rhyne Tennis Coach Tom Rees finalized his 2019-20 recruiting class with the addition of a pair of talented newcomers. Rees adds Kyriaki Mitsou and Paige Black to an already strong incoming group consisting of five additions. The incoming freshmen join a program that set a school record with 18 wins in 2018-19 and ranked as high as No. 33 in the nation.

Coach's Comment: "Sandy is a player that just loves tennis. The tennis court is a second home for her, and she enjoys every aspect of practicing, competing, and conditioning. Her tremendous passion for the sport has helped her become the quality player she is today. Sandy has a big game with several weapons and can use a variety of speeds and spins to throw her opponents off. I see Sandy being able to make an impact in singles and doubles right away for us."

Coach's Comment: "Paige comes to us from a very competitive area of the county where she has been exposed to strong competition throughout her career, which will serve her well heading into college. Paige is extremely coachable, and is hungry to continue her development at Lenoir-Rhyne. She is a player I see tremendous potential in, I don't think her ceiling has been reached yet so I am looking forward to working with her for the next four years."
