NASSAU, BAHAMAS- Bahamas men’s national team player Donte Armbrister this week signed a letter of intent to compete at Hampton University in the fall.

Armbrister, who made the leap to the senior division earlier this year, is hoping to head off in August to pursue a degree in business management once the coronavirus is cleared up and the Bahamas government opens the border to allow travel.

“I’ve spoken to the head coach and he’s excited to have me come there and I’m excited about going there,” said Armbrister, a southpaw who has received a full athletic scholarship.

During his junior tennis career, Armbrister was able to capture a 12-and-under title in Jamaica, finish as a 14-and-under JITIC finalist in El Salvador, a World Junior National Team semifinalist in Dominican Republic and the lone male tennis athlete for The Bahamas at the 2017 Commonwealth Youth Games held here in New Providence.
