Iowa women’s tennis head coach Katie Dougherty announced on Thursday that a new player has signed a national letter of intent.

Carin Runefelt will begin competing for the Hawkeyes during the fall.

Runefelt, from Stockholm, Sweden, has been consistently ranked in the top 15 in that country and has reached as high as No. 11.

She has competed with the SALK club in Elitserien, the highest division in the Swedish tennis series, for four years. She was also the captain for the Women’s Tennis Regional Outdoor Series Division 2 when the team earned a title in 2014.

Runefelt is the fourth member of the 2015 recruiting class for what will be a comparably young team. Zoe Douglas joined the Hawkeye squad prior to the spring season. Adorabol Huckleby and Kristen Thoms will see their first action this fall.

“Carin adds more depth, athleticism, and international experience to our 2015 class,” head coach Katie Dougherty said in a release. “She’s a great student, hard worker, and has the ability to make an impact immediately in our singles and doubles lineups.”
