Women's Tennis Signs Komer to NLI
June 11, 2018
SPOKANE, Wash. – Sara Komer has signed a National Letter of Intent to join the Gonzaga women’s tennis program for the 2018-19 season, head coach D.J. Gurule announced Monday. Komer will arrive at Gonzaga this fall as a senior after having spent her first three years of eligibility at the University of Delaware.
“Sara brings a ton of experience, and I think she fits our mold to a ‘T’ as a kid who came out of high school not particularly highly ranked but has worked super hard and is an unbelievable competitor,” Gurule said. “Sara is a quality kid; we instantly liked her as soon as we started the process. We’re excited to see what she can do in the future, especially with a pretty exciting year coming up.”
Komer had a successful three-year campaign with the Blue Hens, recording 53 career singles wins to tie for 16th all-time in program history. She finished the 2017-18 season with a 19-9 overall record and a 13-4 duals mark at No. 2 singles. Komer picked up All-CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) Second Team Singles honors for her performance.
The Venetia, Pa. native also etched her name in Delaware’s record books in doubles play, posting a top-10 career performance with 57 career doubles wins. Komer was named to the All-CAA Doubles First Team after finishing the 2017-18 season with a 23-7 overall mark in doubles play including a perfect 4-0 mark at No. 1 doubles in CAA play. Komer and partner Brooke Pilkington posted 21 doubles victories together which tied for fourth in the program’s history for doubles wins in a single season.
“I loved the culture and environment that Gonzaga fostered,” Komer said. “I wanted to be part of this competitive program.”
