Women's tennis signs standout from New York
August 1, 2006
Gray became the first player in SUNY-Cobleskill history, male or female, to capture an individual National Junior Collegiate Athletic Association (NJCAA) Div. III National Tennis Championship. On top of being nationally ranked in the United States Tennis Association (USTA) during her junior years, Gray was also a participant in the New York State Championships in four out of five years during her high school career.
Tennis coach Chi Ly hopes Gray can bring the same competition to his Sailfish squad: "Christina will bring a lot of offensive fire to our team as she is a very talented individual," noted Ly. "We're excited to see her play in a PBA uniform."
Gray will be a huge addition to a team that posted a 1-16 record in 2006, a season that was an uphill battle from the start. Gray joins two other recruits signed by Coach Ly in his first recruiting year.
