Release: 02/17/2014
CHAPEL HILL - North Carolina women's tennis coach Brian Kalbas announced the addition of Maggie Kane of Raleigh, N.C., to his freshmen class that will enroll at the university beginning in the fall of 2014.

"Everyone here at North Carolina and within our tennis program are really excited that Maggie will be joining our team this fall," said Kalbas. "Because of her work ethic, tremendous attitude and talent, Maggie had many offers and options to play college tennis. We're thrilled she chose Carolina and will be a great addition to our strong incoming class."

A senior at Needham Broughton HIgh School, Kane was the 2012 North Carolina 4A individual singles champion and the 2010 4A doubles champion. She led her team to state team titles in both 2010 and 2012.

She was ranked as high as 79th nationally in 2013.

Kane has earned All-America status during her high school career, and was the 2013 North Carolina High School Female Tennis Player of the Year.

Certainly no stranger to Carolina athletics, her mom played tennis under the guidance of former Tar Heel coach Kitty Harrison, and her father played soccer for Anson Dorrance when he was the men's coach for North Carolina.

Kane joins an already impressive group of signees that will begin their Carolina careers in the fall. Marika Akkerman and Cassandra Vazquez made up the No. 4-ranked class according to tennisrecruiting.net.
