St. Anthony High School senior D.J. Brummer has declared her intention to play women's tennis at Kaskaskia College in Centralia.

Brummer, the daughter of Steve and Ellen Brummer, signed her letter of intent in a ceremony Wednesday.  She will join Coach Beth Stedelin's team playing at the top of the roster. 

D.J. completed her tennis career at St. Anthony with three trips to the State Championships.  She was a doubles sectional champion during her sophomore and junior years and a singles finalist her senior year.

"We will miss D.J.'s leadership and competitiveness on next year's team.  D.J. has always been an aggressive doubles player, but has become more of a technician with an arsenal of shots," said St. Anthony Coach Darlene Esker.

"I'm looking forward to working with Coach Stedelin at Kaskaskia.  I have been playing tennis and working on my game for many years.  It feels good to know all the hard work has finally paid off," Brummer said.

News/Sports Director Greg Sapp was at the signing ceremony Wednesday and talked with D.J. Brummer about her decision to sign with KC and her plans for the future.
