HOUGHTON, Mi. Michigan Tech Head Coach Kevin Kalinec and the women's tennis program are pleased to announce the addition of Dominika Bobik to the 2019-20 recruiting class. Bobik has signed her National Letter of Intent and joins Lauren Opalewski and Apurva Manas, who signed with the Huskies in November, in this year's recruiting class.
"We are fortunate to find a player of Dominika's skill level at this point in the recruiting year," Coach Kalinec said. "She's a very athletic player with very good speed and footwork who has extensive international playing experience and is currently the 44th ranked women's player in Poland. Dominika also has a strong academic background and will be a great fit for our team and program."
Bobik is from Wroclaw, Poland and prepped at Krzysztof Baczynski General Secondary School No. VIII where she earned a number of accolades for her play on the court.
