Ashleigh Jacobs | Calgary, Alberta

Born in London, England, Jacobs comes to Gonzaga from Calgary. She's the 11th-ranked player in Canada under the age of 18, and she's attained an International Tennis Federation ranking of 457. She reached the National Doubles finals at the U14 and U18 levels and returned to the semifinals in U16 as well. Jacobs has claimed seven U16 and U18 provincial titles in her career and won a gold medal in the Western Canada Summer Games in August 2015. She's also posted four career ITF titles: one in singles play (2015 Vancouver ITF G4) and three in doubles (2015 Edmonton ITF G5, 2016 Silex Canada Junior ITF Indoor Championships, 2016 Victoria International Junior ITF).

Why Jacobs chose Gonzaga: "I really love the feel of the school community, the tremendous support they have for student-athletes, and the Zag family. I love that there is a great balance and you are pushed in both athletics and academics. I'm also really happy to be in a great location that happens to be close to home. I am super excited to become a Zag!"

Coach Gurule on Jacobs: "We are very excited to add Ashleigh to our family. She brings a wealth of international experience to our team. Her focus on development and passion for the game is a perfect fit for our program. We feel that Ashleigh has the tools and attitude to make an immediate impact. We are looking forward to having her on campus and welcome her to the Zag Family!"

This year's squad has wrapped up the fall tournament season and will resume play once the dual slate begins in January 2017. For the latest information on Gonzaga women's tennis, visit www.GoZags.com or follow the team on twitter at @ZagWTennis.
