COLUMBIA — Missouri women's tennis announced Tuesday that Brittany Lashway, a standout player from Syracuse University, decided to transfer to MU. She will join the team in August and be eligible to play in the fall.

Lashway racked up a 12-1 record at No. 1 doubles play as a freshman at Syracuse during the 2012-13 season and earned Rookie of the Year honors from the athletics department.

"We are so confident that she will make an immediate impact on our team next fall," coach Sasha Schmid said in a statement. "Her experience, athleticism and tenacity will fill a role in our singles and doubles lineups."

Lashway has also excelled in the classroom. She was a member of the Academic All-Big East team in addition to making the honor roll in each of her semesters at Syracuse.

"She’s had great academic success, she’s a tireless worker, and she’s shown total commitment to her tennis career," Schmid said in a statement. "Brittany knows that our training program and our competitive SEC schedule will help her to develop into a player who is ready to make a run at the professional tour when her time at Mizzou is complete."
