Moments before taking care of her opponent in the first round of the CIF playoffs, San Luis Obispo High tennis star Tori Troesch took care of some important paperwork. With her teammates, coaches and proud parents watching, Troesch signed her national letter of intent to the University of Portland.
The Pilots are members of the West Coast Conference. They went 10-13 last season. Portland is led by 19th year head coach Susie Campbell-Gross, a two-time WCC Coach of the Year.
"I picked it because it's an awesome mix of academics and athletics that i'm looking for and I love the coach and I love the team," said Troesch. "It has the major that I'm looking for too. I'm super excited and I can't wait to go," said the future Biology major.
Troesch became just the second player in SLO High girls tennis program history to receive a Division I scholarship. She is a two-time PAC-7 champion, earning a singles crown in 2010 and teaming up with Abigail Will for a doubles title in 2011.
She completed her four years with a 126-3 all-time record in PAC-7 League matches.
Troesch says she chose Portland over Cal Poly, Gonzaga and Claremont McKenna.
She won all three of her singles sets in the Tigers' playoff opener against Warren 6-0, 6-0 and 6-3. The Tigers advanced into Saturday's second round with a 13-5 win.
