Heading into her final campaign for the Braves, Bemisderfer has amassed a 40-4 record at #1 singles and for her efforts was rated a two star player by tennisrecruiting.net.


Despite being sidelined by injury through much of her junior season, the nationally ranked Fort Wayne native helped guide her team to a sectional finals berth and enjoyed an undefeated season of 10-0.


Bemisderfer has also established herself within the USTA circuit and throughout the Midwest, having won several tournament titles in addition to qualifying for the Midwest Closed Junior Championship at age 14.


Having taken her first tennis lesson at the age of three, Bemisderfer had the opportunity to train in Portugal on clay courts.


Coach Ferguson has high hopes for his top recruit, “I’m extremely pleased and excited Morgan has chosen HU to continue her tennis career.


“Morgan is an outstanding individual who will bring a lot to our program,” said Ferguson. “I expect Morgan to make an immediate impact on our team and in our conference.”

Morgan is the daughter of Jon and Heather Bemisderfer. She plans to major in studio art and has been awarded an art scholarship from HU’s art department.

In the past decade, Huntington has produced 46 NAIA All-America honors and 202 All-America Scholar Athlete honors.
