Collegiate tennis players excel
Bahamian tennis player Sierra Donaldson is performing well on the collegiate circuit. She has secured wins for her university, Lee University Flames, as the number three in singles and number six in doubles.
Patric Hynes, the Flames head coach stated, “This team is doing a great job of stepping up and competing.”
Donaldson is also a member of the 2019 Bahamas Fed Cup Team that will be traveling to Peru in April.
On the men’s side, Bahamian collegiate player Joshua Turnquest, who plays for the Asbury University Eagles, is ranked number 15 in intercollegiate singles tennis play. He moved up 15 spots based on the latest Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics NAIA rankings announced on March 13.
Turnquest, who is a junior at Asbury University in Kentucky, is 3-1 in singles play this season. Notably, this season he also defeated the number three singles player in the nation, Radu Popa.
On the doubles side, Turnquest and his partner Julian Tellez are also highly ranked at number 25 nationally.
The Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association congratulates both student-athletes on their achievements.
