ITA Rookie of the year Ella Coleman | Rockhurst

ita rookie of the year

Ella Coleman became an immediate leader on the Rockhurst Women's Tennis team with her achievements, discipline, and positive energy on and off the court. She has been consistently ranked near the top of the ITA Singles rankings, with a high of #4 in the nation this season. Her accomplishments are impressive for any student-athlete, but having these as a freshman is especially outstanding.

She is currently ranked higher than any other player in the GLVC conference or Midwest region with several ranked wins throughout the season. Her record of 22-4 speaks for itself, playing #1 singles for the entirety of our spring season. She sets a great example for other players in the lineup with her positivity and respect of opponents. She recently won Newcomer of the Year across all women's sports at Rockhurst University.

A quote From the Head Coach

“Ella made an immediate impact on our program when she joined us in Kansas City last August. Her hard work in the juniors and throughout her first year at the collegiate level allowed her to find immense success in both the fall and spring seasons. She is a tremendous asset to the team, and I look forward to her continued growth as an athlete and competitor in the coming years here at Rockhurst.” - Head Coach Jamie McDonald
