LA Tech Signs German Standout

June 13, 2018

RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech women's tennis head coach Amanda Stone added a third player to the 2018 recruiting class on Wednesday with the signing of Leonie Nutz.

Nutz, who hails from Cologne, Germany, joins Ana Jover and Alana Sherman as part of a trio of future Lady Techsters starting this upcoming fall.

"Leonie is a great addition to our team," Stone said. "She's a serious player and will immediately come in and challenge our team. She is a very aggressive player who is looking to push forward and attack. She'll strengthen us in singles and doubles.

"She had opportunities at several top programs so we are thrilled to have her with us here at Louisiana Tech."

The 5-foot-7-inch right hander will be the first LA Tech player ever from Germany where she was an U18 state champion in her home country.

While a member of the tennis squad in KTHC Stadion Rot-Weiss, Nutz is currently ranked No. 18 in Germany in her age group as well as No. 187 among all players.
