Gonzalez Joins Miami For 2024-25 Season

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami head women’s tennis coach Paige Yaroshuk-Tews announced the addition of transfer Raquel Gonzalez on Monday.

Gonzalez comes to The U as a junior from Oklahoma State University.

“I’ve chosen Miami because my goals are to keep growing and improving both as a person and as a player,” said Gonzalez. “During the recruiting process, it became clear that the University of Miami and Coach Paige and Alex were the ones that I would want to embark on this journey with.”

From Villanueva de Castellon, Spain, is coming off successful 2024 season with the Cowgirls, where she helped lead the team to the program’s first ITA National Indoor title after posting a 15-7 spring doubles record, 7-1 singles record and a season-high doubles ranking at No. 12. Gonzalez earned All-Big 12 second team honors in doubles and was named to the Big 12 All-Tournament team for No. 2 doubles.

For her freshman year in 2023, Gonzalez went 17-3 on the season in doubles play to rank as high as No. 14 and be named to All-Big 12 first team in doubles. She also earned a share of the Big 12 regular season doubles championship in the No. 1 spot.

“Raquel’s goals, passion and commitment to the game are very much aligned with Miami Tennis,” said Yaroshuk-Tews. “We’re excited to see her development within our program.”

Prior to her collegiate career, Gonzalez earned the 2021 Spain U18 title and was a quarterfinalist in the 2022 European Championships along with winning two G2 singles in Valencia and Cap D’ail.

Gonzalez is one of four new Hurricanes joining the team for the 2024-25 season, alongside Jaquelyn Ogunwale, Savannah Webster and Aely Arai.
