Baylor Women’s Tennis Adds Plews to Spring Roster

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Baylor women’s tennis program adds Jazzi Plews to the spring 2017 roster, head coach Joey Scrivano announced Wednesday.

"Jazzi is a very focused and determined young lady,” Scrivano said. “She is extremely committed and dedicated to her craft. Jazzi is known for playing with a lot of heart and truly competes on the court. She really loves the team aspect of college tennis, and some of her best international success has come from representing Great Britain in junior team events. We are excited to have her join our team and know that she will make a positive impact immediately." 

Plews hails from Beverley, United Kingdom and is ranked No. 91 by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). As a representative of Great Britain, she has played singles and doubles in every match at World Team Championship Finals. Plews secured a Great Britain European Championship and a runner-up result in World Championship play.

In ITF action, Plews has played her way to five singles championships (G5 Morocco, G4 Netherlands, G4 Netherlands, G3 Brazil, G3 Brazil) and one runner-up finish (G4 Morocco) as well as two doubles championships (G3 Brazil, G3 Brazil) and three semifinal results (G4 Spain, G4 Morocco, G4 Netherlands).

Plews is a three-time finalist at the British National Championships (U10, U12 and U14) and a two-time semifinalist (U14, U16). In doubles, Plews is a two-time national champion (U12, U14). She has also won two Tennis Europe titles in Latvia (both U14) and was a finalist at Tennis Europe in Croatia (U14).

Plews, also a Level 1 LTA Coach, comes from a tennis family. Her father, Richard, is an ITA Boys National tennis coach and her mother, Vicki, is an ITA Wimbledon Accreditation Administrator. She lists her family as her biggest supporters on and off the court.

“I'm so excited to join Baylor family,” Plews said. “Having met Joey, the girls and all the coaching staff I know that by being surrounded by such genuinely inspiring people, I will have every opportunity to fulfill my potential as a student, athlete, and person. I feel so incredibly blessed and grateful to have the opportunity to be part of such an amazing program.”
