IOWA CITY, Iowa — University of Iowa women’s tennis coach Katie Dougherty announced Thursday that Adorabol Huckleby has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Hawkeye program in 2014.
“We are excited to welcome Adorabol to the Hawkeye tennis family,” said Dougherty. “I see her making an immediate impact on our program in both the singles and doubles lineup. Her aggressive style, athleticism, and competitiveness will make her a successful student-athlete at Iowa, and contribute to our success in the Big Ten and nationally.”
Huckleby, a Detroit native, joins the Hawkeyes as a four-star recruit and the 92nd-ranked national prospect according to tennisrecruiting.net. An anticipated 2014 graduate of the International Virtual Learning Academy in Detroit, Huckleby earned a doubles title at the USTA Girls 16’s National Open, and earned a singles championship at the USTA Girls 16’s Regionals.
As a 14-year-old, Huckleby appeared in the finals of the USTA Girls 14’s National Junior Doubles Championship.
