Colorado tennis coach Nicole Kenneally announced the addition of Louise Ronaldson to the team's 2016-17 roster on Wednesday.

Ronaldson, a native of London, is a transfer from Mississippi State University. She will have two years of eligibility remaining.

"I am really excited that Lou is joining the Buff family starting this fall," Kenneally said. "The knowledge and experience she has gained in her first two years in the SEC puts her in a spot where she already understands the level of the Pac-12. Lou had a lot of great opportunities with her choice and for her to choose CU shows where we are as a program and where we are going. I'm looking forward to seeing her compete."

Ronaldson posted a 23-18 singles record in two seasons at Mississippi State, playing primarily at the No. 4 position. She also carried a 32-24 record in doubles, fitting in mostly at the No. 2 spot. In SEC play, she was 4-8 in singles matches and 12-10 in doubles competition. Ronaldson was also key to a winning program as a team, leading the Bulldogs to a combined 34-21 record and a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances the past two years.

Prior to her collegiate career, Ronaldson was a standout in the United Kingdom. She has been ranked in the top 10 and top 15 of the U-16 and U-18 rankings in the U.K. She also won the 21TF doubles championship and was a runner-up in the South Africa ITF.


She chose CU for the welcoming atmosphere, friendly teammates and breathtaking scenery.
