Washington and Lee Director of Athletics Jan Hathorn has
announced the addition of Bianca Svensson as an assistant women's
tennis coach in the Generals' athletic department.
Svensson joins the W&L tennis staff after graduating from the University of Alabama this past spring with a degree in political science and a minor psychology. While at Alabama, Svensson was a member of the women's tennis program, competing with the Crimson Tide for two seasons. During that time, she played positions 4-6 singles and 1-3 doubles, posting a 29-34 singles and a 31-43 doubles ledger. She was named to the ITA All-Academic Team both seasons, in addition to earning Spring Academic All-SEC Honor Roll recognition as a sophomore and being named to the SEC Freshmen All-Academic Team.
After being sidelined by injuries during her junior and senior seasons, Svensson assumed the responsibility of a student assistant coach. In that role, she assisted the team with recruiting, community service and other special events.
Svensson will assume her responsibilities at W&L immediately.
