Vogasari Tabbed Among Nation's Top Freshmen

Despoina Vogasari is the first Houston freshmen to garner a preseason top-10 ranking among newcomers

Sep 6, 2013

HOUSTON - University of Houston women's tennis freshman Despoina Vogasari was ranked as the nation's sixth-best freshmen or newcomer entering the Division I ranks, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) announced Friday.

The Athens, Greece, native becomes the first Houston freshmen to receive the acknowledgement in the history of the rankings and is a part of head coach Patrick Sullivan's first recruiting class that is now on campus, which was ranked as the No. 6 signing class in the nation.

"There are lot of outstanding freshmen across the country in Division 1 and to be ranked among the top 10 is a big honor," said Sullivan. "That said, this is a preseason ranking and although we appreciate the honor, we know that the only poll that really matters is the final one of the spring and there is a lot of tennis to be played between now and then. We're working hard to get ready for competition and looking forward to getting started in a couple of weeks."

Vogasari comes to Houston highly regarded following successful stints at professional events competing as an amateur, where she claimed three singles and doubles titles and reached the finals on seven other occasions over the last three years.

The Cougars will officially kick off the 2013 fall tournament season on Sept. 20, where split squads will compete at the Islander Open in Corpus Christi, Texas, and the Little Rock Invitational in Arkansas.
