Lakeside senior Kayla Hergott signed a letter of intent to play tennis at Florida Tech on Wednesday.
Hergott, the team’s No. 1 singles player who helped lead the Panthers to a Class AAAAA state championship in 2012, said the program intends to play her as a freshman.
“It’s a pretty intense program, and hopefully I’ll be able to improve as a player while I’m there and peak my skills, because I don’t think I’ve gotten there yet,” she said.
“I hope I can contribute a lot to the team.”
