For senior Bethany Yauch, who verbally committed to play Division I tennis for Cleveland State University during her junior year, Monday’s official signing for a full scholarship made her feel much better.
“I was nervous about potentially getting injured and losing my scholarship, so having the official signing done is a huge relief,” Yauch said.
Yauch, who was a standout tennis player at Baldwin, said she does not plan on continuing her tennis career past college.
“I just want to play in college. I don’t plan on going pro,” Yauch said. “I just want to enjoy my college career and leave it at that.”
Yauch said that Cleveland State University being close to home is not the sole reason she selected it, but it played a role in her decision.
“I’m definitely glad that it’s close to home, but more than anything I love the quality of their facilities as well as their dorms,” Yauch said.
