BOISE, Idaho – Boise State’s head women’s tennis coach Beck Roghaar announced today the signing of Nancy Menjivar (San Salvador, El Salvador) to a financial aid agreement. Menjivar will arrive at Boise State this January and will compete for the Broncos during the spring semester.
   
"Nancy is a tremendous talent that brings a wealth of high level experience to our program,” said Roghaar. “She's proven through her outstanding results in both singles and doubles on the International Tennis Federation (ITF) junior circuit that she can compete with the top players from around the globe in our sport. She is a phenomenal athlete who is very quick and explosive on court, and she will make a great addition to our program both on and off the courts when she arrives in January. She is joining a very strong freshman recruiting class this year, and we are very excited about the future of our program."  
     
"I chose Boise State because of the great atmosphere the team has, and the high academic level of the university,” commented Menjivar. “It's a great school and I'm beyond excited to be part of the Bronco family."  
   
Menjivar has been competing in ITF competitions throughout her youth career, playing at the highest level for juniors in the world. She has won nine Central American tournaments in singles and doubles, as well as recorded eight second-place finishes. This past September she was the runner up at an ITF tournament in Honduras and reached the semifinals of another a week later. In addition, over the last two years Menjivar has advanced to four ITF semifinals for doubles.  
  
She has represented El Salvador twice as part of the junior national team that competed in the U14 and U16 Junior Federation Cup (Fed Cup), helping the team to a third place finish last year. 

   
Just last month she was honored by the El Salvador National Assembly as the "Athlete of the Year" in the sport of tennis. She has been ranked No. 1 in the national ranking for the last five years, while her best ITF ranking has been 652.
