HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. - Elizabeth Brunsman, one of the top tennis players in the city of Cincinnati at Oak Hills High School, has signed a national letter of intent to attend Northern Kentucky University and play women’s tennis next season.

Brunsman, who will graduate from Oak Hills this spring, compiled a 62-12 record at No. 1 singles for the Highlanders during her four years. She was named the team’s most valuable player four consecutive years, and she holds the school record for career victories.

“Elizabeth is the kind of player who is going to help elevate our program to another level, and we are very pleased she decided to join our team,” NKU head coach Dave Bezold said. “She is an outstanding person and a great tennis player, and Elizabeth is a tremendous recruit for our program.”

NKU is the two-time defending champion of the Great Lakes Valley Conference, and the Norse will be looking for their second straight trip to the NCAA Division II Tournament this spring. NKU posted a 13-1 record during the fall and won the GLVC title.
