App State Women’s Tennis Announce Three to 2022 Fall Roster

App State Tennis will welcome three new student-athletes for the 2022-23 season, head coach Ashleigh Antal announced Friday.

Incoming freshmen Riley Collins (Franklin, Tenn.) and Savannah Dada-Mascoll (Greater Manchester, England) and incoming sophomore transfer Brooke Demerath (Kenmore, Wash./Utah State) will help bolster the Mountaineers’ roster next season.

“We’re so excited for Riley, Savannah and Brooke to be joining our App State tennis family,” Antal said. “They each embody what it means to be a Mountaineer, with their respect, work ethic and dedication to the sport. We can’t wait to have them on campus as they each will have an immediate impact on our program.”

 

Riley Collins – Franklin, Tenn. – Ensworth School

Ensworth’s No. 1 singles player who also helped her doubles team to a state runner-up finish last year, Collins is ranked as the No. 6 recruit in Tennessee and No. 349 in the U.S., according to tennisrecruiting.net.

Collins was a first-team all-state selection as a junior last season on her way to being named the 2021 Middle Tennessee Girls Player of the Year by The Tennessean and Main Street Preps. She also helped Ensworth to a team regional championship.

 

Savannah Dada-Mascoll – Yorkshire, England

Regarded as one of the top 20 youth tennis prospects in England, Dada-Mascoll competes for the Tameside Netball Club out of Greater Manchester as well as training at the Bolton Arena Tennis Academy.

She won a gold medal for England at the 2020 Netball Europe in the U17 category and has won individual championships at Yorkshire County, Sutton Nationals and The Scottish Indoors.

 

Brooke Demerath – Kenmore, Wash. – Inglemoor High School – Utah State

A four-year letterwinner at Inglemoor, Demerath spent her freshman year of college at Utah State, where she played in 16 singles matches and nine doubles matches for the Aggies.

In her prep career, Demerath was named the Vikings’ team MVP three times, while also taking the district singles title each season. She finished second individually at the state championships as a sophomore.
