WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.- Palm Beach Atlantic University women’s tennis head coach Chi Ly is pleased to announce his first official national letter of intent signing for the 2009-2010 season in Cape Haze, Florida native Jordan Ittersagen. Currently a senior at Lemon Bay High School, Ittersagen brings not only a solid tennis background but also a very impressive academic resume with her to PBA.
Playing at #1-singles for head coach Darrell Roach at LBHS, Ittersagen has helped lead the team not only with her play but also off the court as she is a two-year captain of the girl’s tennis team. While at Lemon Bay, Ittersagen has proven tough to beat as she has been crowned a District champion and also a regional qualifier.
Not only an outstanding athlete, Ittersagen has also focused much of her attention to off-court experiences. She is a member of the Lemon Bay National Honor Society, Student Council, and the Interact Club. She has also been involved with the Business Club where she was elected president.
Perhaps one of her most honorary distinctions dates back to her sophomore year of high school where she was elected her school’s represenative to the Hugh O’Brian Youth Foundation Leadership Conference (HOBY).
With plans to major in Biology and a concentration in Pre-Health Professional Preparation while also being accepted into the PBA Honors program, it appears that not only will Ittersagen have a bright future at PBA on the tennis courts but also in her preparation for a great career.
“We are very pleased to welcome in a player of Jordan’s ability level and passion for tennis. I feel she will have much to offer to our program both on and off the court,” said head coach Chi Ly.
Jordan is the daughter of Scott and Tamara Ittersagen. She has one sister, Taylor, and two brothers, Brett and Garrett.
