Early Monday afternoon Lindsey Waters signed with Lindenwood – Belleville making her the first women’s tennis player in school history.
Waters, a native of Illinois and graduate of Salem Community High School, is currently attending Rend Lake College. She led the Warriors this fall playing #1 singles and #1 doubles. Recently Waters was named the United States Tennis Association (USTA) Southern Illinois Junior Player of the Year. She looks to continue her excellent play for the Warriors this spring and will carry it with her to Lindenwood – Belleville next fall.
When asked about the unique opportunity to play on the first women’s tennis team in school history, Waters said, “It’s awesome. I’m excited and can’t wait to get on the court.”
Waters was being highly recruited by several other schools including some at the NCAA Division I level. Coach Scott Spinner was excited when he received the word last week that she had decided to attend Lindenwood – Belleville. “We’re excited to sign such a fine player, student, and person,” said Coach Spinner. “Lindsey has successful years ahead of her on and off the tennis court. She’s a great player, but she’s also a great student and intends to pursue law school after graduating from Lindenwood - Belleville. We’re glad to have her.”
