HANOVER, N.H. - Head Coach Bob Dallis and the Dartmouth women's tennis team are excited to announce the recruiting class of 2017.
The incoming freshmen have been rated one of the country's top-25 by TennisRecruiting.Net.
The three recruits-Jacqueline Crawford, Taylor Ng, and Narni Summerall-earned Dartmouth a ranking of No. 22 among national Division I recruiting classes.
Bloomfield Hills, Mich.
Crawford has been competing this past year as an amateur on the Women's Tennis Association (WTA) pro tour. She has earned three WTA points and is currently ranked No. 1153 in the world. Last fall, she beat Clemson's blue-chip freshman Tristen Dewar.
Ng is ranked No. 47 in the nation and won a National Open in November in Minnesota, beating two blue-chip players and a 5-star player. In October, she reached the quarterfinal of a USTA Regional championship in Northern California, beating two 5-star players, including one who has committed to Arizona State. Ng has consistently been one of TennisRecruiting.Net's Prince Hot 100 players this year, and is 6-1 against 5-star players and 2-2 against blue chip players. She also plays on the Haddonfield Memorial High School lacrosse team.
Summerall, Charleston, S.C.:
Summerall is the country's No. 60 player and won the Dasani Mayor's Cup in Augusta, Ga., in early January. In late January, she beat the No. 16-ranked player in the Class of 2015, and in September, she reached the semis of a USTA Regional Championship in Sumter, S.C . Summerall's ranking has improved from No. 277 in 2009 to a high of No. 58 in 2012.
The trio look to bring their amateur and high school successes to Hanover and help the Big Green compete nationally and in Ivy League play.
