TUCSON, Ariz.—Arizona women's tennis head coach Vicky Maes announced the team has added junior transfer student Samantha Czarniak for the 2015-2016 season, a move that will undoubtedly strengthen an already impressive roster.
"Samantha Czarniak is a wonderful addition to our program," said Maes. "She brings a wealth of experience to the team and a level of maturity that will greatly benefit our group. I'm very happy she chose to come here after spending her first two years at Texas Tech. Above all, she is a driven young woman and I feel she has a lot of untapped potential."
Czarniak, a native of São Paulo Brazil, comes to the U of A after playing two seasons with Texas Tech where she compiled a 23-17 overall record including a 9-7 mark in dual play.
During her sophomore year at Tech, Czarniak went 11-4 during the fall and 1-1 in the spring, playing at the No.6 spot in both of her dual matches.
Czarniak's freshman campaign saw her obtain a spring record of 7-5 with all but one win coming from the No. 6 position. She went 3-2 in conference matches and gained experience in doubles play, going 3-5.
