Tennis Adds Transfer Brittany Lashway



Jan. 28, 2014

COLUMBIA, Mo. - University of Missouri Head Tennis Coach Sasha Schmid announced on Tuesday the addition of transfer Brittany Lashway (Bradenton, Fla.) to the Mizzou tennis program. Lashway, who competed at Syracuse during the 2012-13 season, will join the Tigers in August and be available to play for the Tigers in the fall.

"We are so excited to announce that Brittany Lashway will be joining the Mizzou Tennis team next season," Schmid said. "We instantly felt comfortable with Brittany and her family as soon as the recruiting process started, and we are so confident that she will make an immediate impact on our team next fall. She was one of the top 40 recruits in her class during her junior tennis career, and she has experience on every level of the ITF women's circuit. She's had great academic success, she's a tireless worker, and she's shown total commitment to her tennis career."

"Brittany knows that our training program and our competitive SEC schedule will help her to develop in to a player who is ready to make a run at the professional tour when her time at Mizzou is complete. Her experience, athleticism, and tenacity will fill a role in our singles and doubles lineups, and she will instantly become a favorite of her teammates and Tiger fans."

As a freshman for the Orange in 2012-13, Lashway went 12-4 in doubles, including 12-1 at No. 1 play, and earned Rookie of the Year honors at the Syracuse Athletic Awards. In the classroom, she was named to the Honor Roll every semester at Syracuse and earned a spot on the Academic All-BIG EAST team.

Lashway also competed extensively, as an amateur, on the ITF Women's Professional Circuit, earning qualifying wins at $10,000, $25,000 and $50,000 professional tournaments. She qualified for the main draw of her first pro circuit event at the Amelia Island $10,000 in September 2013 and reached a career high WTA singles ranking of 1140 on April 29, 2013.
