"We're excited to have Alex with us this season," said head coach Tim Gray. "She brings us a lot of experience as a three-time NCAA participant, and bringing her on board can only help us with her wealth of knowledge."
Haney, the 2009 ITA South Region Senior of the Year, was a two-time All-SEC First-Team selection for the Tigers in her four years on The Plains. The Grayson, Ga., native accumulated a 100-47 singles record and an 85-46 doubles record. In all, Haney totaled 185 wins to 93 defeats.
As a senior, Haney played solely in the No. 2 spot, picking up her 100th career singles win at the 2009 NCAA Tournament. The victory came over USC's Maria Sanchez in opening-round play. She also earned ITA All-America honors for her performance in both the 2008 and 2009 NCAA Tournaments, as well as earning a spot on the 2007 Second-Team All-SEC as a sophomore.
Auburn returns to action next weekend, as the team will travel to ITA Nationals in Los Angeles Jan. 30-31. The Tigers will take on No. 29 LSU in the opening round of the team tournament, followed by No. 9 USC or San Diego on Sunday.
