ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan women's tennis head coach Ronni Bernstein announced on Thursday (Nov. 10) the signing of blue chip recruit Isabella Lorenzini to a National Letter of Intent to join the Wolverines for the 2017-18 academic year.
"I am so excited to add Bella to our program next fall," Bernstein said. "She is an incredible fighter on the court and will bring a tremendous amount of heart to our program. I can't wait for her to join us next year and help us get to the next level."
Lorenzini, who hails from Clarendon Hills, Ill., is currently ranked No. 18 by the Tennis Recruiting Network. She has been ranked as high as No. 9 during her high school career, which has been highlighted by the 2015 Illinois state singles championship. Lorenzini won the state title last season after back-to-back years in the finals (2013, 2014). She was a semifinalist in both the girls 18s Clay Courts Championships in July and the girls 18s National Selection in June of this year.
Her prep career has also included winning the girls 16s Midwest Closed Singles Championship twice and adding a doubles title at the same tournament. She finished fifth at the Easter Bowl that same year (2014).
Michigan has signed at least one Blue Chip recruit in six of the last seven years under Bernstein.
