GREELEY – Northern Colorado women’s tennis solidified its 2017-18 roster by welcoming its fourth recruit in Madeline Doherty. Doherty joins the 2017-18 team from Lenexa, Kansas.
“We are excited to have Madeline join our program. She is self-motivated and has a great attitude,” head coach Brenda Gallegos said. “Her work ethic is exactly what our program looks for in student-athletes and I’m excited to work with her and watch her compete at a high level.”
Doherty is a two-time letterman in tennis during her high school career. In both of those years, 2014 and 2015, she qualified for the state tournament. On the club circuit, Doherty not only played well, but also exemplified excellent sportsmanship. She earned the USTA Heart of America Stephanie Waterman Sportsmanship Award. For her play she was named the KCUT/OP Player of the Year.
The Bears earned the commitment from Madeline over Drake, Northern Iowa, Creighton and Midwestern State. She joins the team’s 2017 recruiting class of Mana Koitabashi, Tristen Bryant-Otake and Carrigan Blanchard. Northern Colorado’s 2016-17 team earned a trip to the Big Sky Tournament fall in a hard fought first round match to Idaho State 4-3.
