Early years

Hetherington was born in Brampton, Ontario in 1964.

She attended the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where she played for coach Andy Brandi's Florida Gators women's tennis team from 1984 to 1987. While playing for the Gators, she won four straight Southeastern Conference (SEC) singles championships, three as the team's No. 2 singles player, and once as the No. 1 singles player. She also won three consecutive SEC doubles championships from 1985 to 1987. Hultquist was recognized as a four-time first-team All-SEC selection and received four All-American honors.[2] She was inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a "Gator Great" in 1999.[3]
