DENTON (11/17/05) -- North Texas women’s tennis head coach Dawna Prevette has announced that Zsofia Zubor, who was the 24th ranked women’s player in Hungary, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play with the Mean Green this season.
Zubor trained at the prestigious Van der Meer Academy in Hilton Head, South Carolina, this fall before signing with the Mean Green and will have four years of eligibility remaining at North Texas. The Nyiregyhaza, Hungary, native has been a member of the Hungarian Tennis Team since the age of 13 and was nationally ranked as high as No. 2 in Juniors.
"I look for Zsofia to bring an exciting energy to the team," said North Texas head coach Dawna Prevette. "She is hard working and mentally tough on the court. She is very quick and uses that to her advantage on the court."
Zubor participated in the European Championships throughout her career as the representative of her country in both team and singles play, including Moscow, Kosice, San Remo and Tolmezzo. Zubor played in the U-16 Finals of the National Hungarian Championship in 2003 and the U-18 Semifinals in both 2004 and 2005.
Zubor won the National Hungarian Doubles Championship with Agnes Szavay in 2001. She played regularly at ETA and ITF Championships (Umag, Prague and Maribor), actually winning the U-16 ETA Tournament in Szazhalombatta in 2003. In addition, Zubor won the National Good Athlete and Good Student Award given by the Hungarian government in 2003 and was a member of the first-class women’s tennis team of Nyiregyhaza. She attended Sipkay Barna Vocational School in Hungary.
