Baylor Women’s Tennis Inks One in 2017 Class

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor women’s tennis announced the signing of Kristina Sorokolet on Tuesday. The Russia, Moscow, native, joins the Bears in the fall of 2017.

“We are very excited to have Kristina join the Baylor family,” Baylor head women’s tennis coach Joey Scrivano said. “She is a determined and mature young lady. Kristina is a coach’s dream; she is committed to the process, possesses strong intangibles and has a very high ceiling. She’s a great fit for our program and has a bright future at Baylor.”

Sorokolet, the No. 272 ranked player according to the International Tennis Federation (ITF), has made seven final and three semifinal appearances in junior tournaments in the last three years.

Most recently in 2016, she was a finalist in singles and doubles at the ITF G4 Governor Cup (Russia), a doubles finalist at the ITF G4 Estonian Junior Open (Estonia) and a semifinalist in the ITF G2 Donetsk City Cup (Ukraine). Sorokolet played her way to finals in doubles at the ITF G5 Alatan Tour Cup (Belarus), ITF G5 Green Cup (Russia), ITF G4 Gennadi Petrov Memorial Cup (Belarus), and in singles at the ITF G5 Bishkek Sunrise Open (Kyrgyztan) in 2015. She also made singles semifinal appearances at the ITF G4 Oslo (Norway) in 2015 and ITF G5 Green Cup (Russia) in 2014.

Sorokolet is the daughter of Igor Sorokolet and Larisa Muzlanova. At Baylor, she plans to study Biology and Engineering.

“I’m very happy to become a Baylor Bear,” Sorokolet said. “I really think that this is the best place for me and my future. The team, coaches and the whole university are amazing. Baylor is such a special place and the tennis program has a great tradition of success. I’m very excited to be a part of the Baylor family and want to make an impact over the next four years.”
