Erin Sanders, who starred for four years on the University of Colorado women’s tennis team, has returned to her alma mater as the school’s new executive director of the Alumni C Club, athletic director Rick George announced Monday.

She replaces Tate Nelson, who left the position last winter to pursue other interests.

“I am just really happy to come back to where I feel most at home,” Sanders said. “I get not only to work with tennis, but with all the sports and their letter winners. I look forward to re-engaging former and current student-athletes with the challenge to grow the C Club.”

Since graduation, she worked as the public relations director for the Grizzly Rose in Denver and then was in sports marketing for Babolat.

Sanders, 24, lettered in tennis from 2009-13, played for the Buffs in both the Big 12 and Pac-12 conferences. She played in 74 singles matches (at Nos. 1 through 6, the bulk at the No. 4 position) and 70 doubles events during her CU career.
