CHARLESTON, S.C. - Brooke McAmis has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the three-time defending Southern Conference champion College of Charleston women's tennis team and will join the Cougars for the 2012-13 season as announced by head coach and Director of Tennis Angelo Anastopoulo on Monday.
McAmis, a 5-foot-5 right-hander out of Southeast Guilford High School in Greensboro, N.C., was ranked as high as No. 33 in the nation in the Class of 2012 by TennisRecruiting.net. The five-star recruit also held an RPI rating as high as No. 13 in the country. She is currently coached by Tom Herb, who trained current Cougars, Caroline and Christin Newman.
The youngest of three daughters of Brad and Pam McAmis, Brooke has loved sports ever since she can remember. She plans to major in communications at The College with hopes of landing a sports broadcasting job which will only fuel her interest and knowledge of sports.
"Brooke is a top-tier student-athlete who will make an immediate impact on our team," Anastopoulo said. "Her determination on the court makes her a very difficult opponent. She is an incredible athlete that pitched on an all-boys baseball team until she was 11 years old.
"She continues the legacy and success we've had in recruiting the state of North Carolina by joining current team members from the state in Caroline Newman, Christin Newman, Jenny Falcone and Grace Baker. We look forward to Brooke bringing so many wonderful things to our program including her terrific parents, Brad and Pam, and sisters, Lauren and Madison."
