JONESBORO (Ark St) - Arkansas State tennis coach Marina Engelbrecht announced the signing of two student-athletes to the A-State tennis squad Tuesday.
Victoria Pisani of Tring, Hertfordshire (England) and Julie Gauguery of Sailly-en-Ostrevent, France have signed National Letters of Intent to play for the Red Wolves in 2013-14.
"Victoria and Julie are two great additions to our team they will give us depth in both singles and doubles," Engelbrecht said. "Victoria brings a lot of experience and success in doubles to our team. Julie is a strong singles player with a great passion for the sport. I'm really excited about these two ladies and look forward to seeing them accomplish great things for us."
