Commitment Announcement
Fall Signing Week '08: Turvy Joins Big Ten Powerhouse

It's no surprise that blue chip recruit Kate Turvy entertained serious thoughts of becoming a Buckeye, since her hometown of Dublin, Ohio is a just a few miles from Columbus. But a trip to Evanston, Ill. last month made such an impression that Turvy chose Northwestern instead.

"It was my last visit and when I visited there, in my mind it was down to Ohio State and Northwestern," says Turvy, who also made trips to Vanderbilt and Notre Dame. "I really liked the campus - I'd never seen it before - so once I saw it, I loved it. I really liked the team, the coach and the facilities."

Turvy's decision was a difficult one, with ties to the hometown university pulling her in its direction, while a preference for a smaller school was tugging the other way.

"I loved the Ohio State coach and the team, and their new indoor facility is great," Turvy says. "The program is really building there, so it would have been fun to be a part of that. But when it came down it, I just liked the feel of a smaller school."

A two-time Ohio state high school champion who went 59-0 her sophomore and junior years, winning every match in straight sets, Turvy is no stranger to team tennis. She is looking forward to participating in the college athletic scene at Northwestern, where the women have won a record-breaking ten consecutive Big Ten titles.
