This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.
Jojo Bach, a transfer from the University of Delaware, will join Maryland women’s tennis on the 2021-22 roster, the team recently announced.
The Cowfold, United Kingdom native joins the Terrapins after earning a spot on the All-CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) Second Team in singles and doubles. Bach’s dominant level of play led the Blue Hens to an undefeated regular 2020-21 season and a quarterfinals appearance in the CAA tournament.
Before Delaware, the 5-foot-11 junior was a G1 British Tour Semifinalist and two-time doubles finalist, and a two-time semifinalist in the ITF Juniors in Kenya.
“We’re excited to have Jojo joining us this fall,” Maryland head coach Katie Dougherty said in a press release. “Jojo had a great summer competing and brings two years of experience from Delaware. She’s a great student in the classroom and to the game. Jojo is dedicated to her development and loves to compete. I believe she’ll be a big contributor for us in both singles and doubles.”
