ATLANTA — Georgia Tech’s women’s basketball program added a fifth signee to its 1999-00 recruiting class with the signing of Swedish national team member Nina Barlin (Tradgardsgaten, Sweden) to a national letter of intent during the spring signing period, Yellow Jacket head coach Agnus Berenato has announced.
Barlin, a 5-foot-9 point guard, earned MVP honors while helping lead the Sandagymnasiet School to the Swedish under-21 team championship. Barlin also played on the Swedish Junior National Team ‘Brahe’ and averaged 15 points and five assists per game.
‘We are very excited to have Nina join our program,’ Berenato said. ‘She brings a tremendous amount of maturity and will add a different style of play to our team.’
‘I’m really excited about attending Georgia Tech,’ Barlin said. ‘I loved the coaches and the team. I know I will like playing here a lot.’
Barlin is Tech’s fifth signee for the 1999-00 season and third signee of the spring. The Jackets also signed Tamika Boatner (Memphis, Tenn.) and Alex Stewart (Norcross, Ga.) during the spring joining fall signees Amy Lingenfelder (Fairfax, Va.) and Sonja Mallory (The Bronx, N.Y.).
