BRFS: UCD women sign a tennis standout

By December 1, 2010

\n

UC Davis head coach Bill Maze announced Tuesday that the Aggie women\’s tennis program signed El Cerrito High standout Layla Sanders to a National Letter of Intent during the November signing period. Sanders is a Five-Star Recruit, as rated by tennisrecruiting.net and is set to enroll at UCD in the fall of 2011.

\n

Listed at 5-foot-2, Sanders has been ranked in the top five in the NorCal region in every age group, including three separate No. 1 rankings. In 2006, she was in the top 20 of the USTA National Rankings and was a finalist at the Copper Bowl. Sanders went undefeated in prep play in 2007 and was the ACCAL Champion. She was also a member of the Jr. Fed Cup Team and the Pacific Cup Team in the NorCal region during 2007.

\n

In 2008, Sanders repeated as ACCAL Champion after going undefeated in prep play. She was also a finalist at NCS and again was a member of the Jr .Fed Cup Team in the NorCal Region.

\n

“We are very fortunate that Layla has chosen to attend UC Davis,” Maze said. “Her high school academic record is extremely impressive and she has always been at or near the top in the NorCal junior tennis rankings. She is an all-court player which makes her as adept in doubles as she is in singles.”

\n

The Aggies will begin their spring season on Jan. 22 when they travel to play a pair of matches in Tempe, Ariz.
