During her tennis career, Collins (1990, 1992-'93) became the first Northwest women's player to qualify for the NCAA Tournament, doing so all three years she played.
The Fremont, Neb., native was the 1993 MIAA Most Valuable Player and was twice the league's No. 1 singles champion. Ranked No. 22 in 1993, Collins was part of the No. 1 doubles championship team as a senior.
From 1992-'93, she led the Bearcats to conference championships after missing the 1991 season due to injuries.
On her career she went a record 62-12 in singles and held the career mark for doubles wins at 61 for more than a decade before Gena Lindsay set a new mark.
