USI women’s tennis signs two

The University of Southern Indiana women’s team announced the signing of Ashley Rees and Kimberly Decker for the 2002-03 season. Rees and Decker are the first signees of the spring for USI Head Coach Keely Porter.

Rees is a senior at Vincennes Lincoln High School in Vincennes, Indiana, where she has lettered in tennis and cross country. The native of Vincennes, Indiana, is a two-time All-Big 8 Conference selection and was named All-District and honorable mention All-State as a senior. She also is ranked 22nd in the CITA and 71st in the Western.

Decker is a senior at Brownsburg High School in Brownsburg, Indiana, where she earned letters in tennis. The Brownsburg, Indiana, native was All-State as a junior in singles and All-State in doubles in 2001. She also compiled a match record of 59-4 through her junior season.

Ranked as high as 51 in the Western Rankings, Decker is currently 80th in the Westerns.

“Ashley and Kimberly should help us continue to improve in the GLVC standings,” said Porter. “After two years at second, I am hope that Rees and Decker combine with our top returnees (senior Emily Blinzinger and junior Nichole Freyberger) will lead us to the 2002 conference championship.

“I expect Rees and Decker to finish up outstanding high school season this spring and report in shape next fall. They will be coming from successful high school programs that should add to our momentum.”
