Central Christian College tennis coach, Jeremy Nelson, has added another player to his women's roster for the 2013-2014 season.
Nelson has signed Em Barnett, a senior from Kansas City, Kan. Barnett played high school tennis at Maranatha Christian Academy where she lettered two seasons for the Eagles and head coach Leslie Bailey.
"Em was focused, persistent in self-improvement and self-perfection,” Bailey said. “She is a real leader and role model."
Barnett will be joining a young Tiger team that had four upper classmen and six freshmen last season.
“Em is a great young lady with a great attitude and work ethic,” Nelson said. “She will be a great fit for our program and for the CCC community."
Barnett is the daughter of Tim and Pam Barnett of Kansas City, Kansas. She graduated in the spring with a 3.52 cumulative high school GPA.
She plans on pursuing a degree in business while attending Central Christian.
Barnett will join her new teammates in late August when all new freshmen report to campus.
