Ashland University recently dedicated the Deborah Liebert Karl Tennis Complex following renovations made possible by a $250,000 donation from Karl, who graduated from Ashland in 1972.
“The renovations made
to our tennis complex are exceptional,” Athletics Director Al King said.
“We've been able to upgrade the facilities in a variety of ways. We've
resurfaced the courts, added a sixth court and bleachers and added and upgraded
our signage. These changes will enhance the experience of the student-athletes
and our fans.”
While Karl didn’t play
tennis when attending the school, she wanted to improve the school and the facility
was in need of upgrades. The facility has already been put to use, with Great
Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference matches taking place before and after
the dedication ceremony.
We believe this gives
us a top-notch facility,” King said. “It expands what we can do – we can
practice better, run better matches, thanks to the sixth court and the other
amenities we've added, and it gives us the possibility to do more with our camp
offerings…Finally, this is a facility that the community can use. This
renovation bolsters tennis not just on campus, but in the city of Ashland and
the surrounding area."
