LOUDONVILLE, NY - Siena Women’s Tennis head coach Jeff Osborn announced the signing of two to the program. The duo are both four-star recruits.
“I believe that both of these 4-star recruits will help make the team stay strong next season and I look forward to working with both Dilara and Meagan,” said Osborn.
"Meagan is going to be a great addition to the Siena Women's Tennis team in Fall of 2018,” stated Osborn. “She is a fierce competitor that is very smart on the court being able to figure out her opponents weaknesses and will make you beat her on every point. Her powerful forehand along with her smart on court presence will make her a strong player at the college level. I believe that she will compete for a top spot in the lineup right away next fall."
Meagan Brown has a current UTR of 8.7 and has been as high as 8.95 this past year. She makes her way to Siena as a four-star recruit and is number 152 in the nation from Elk River, Minnesota. She is a five-time State qualifier and was the runner-up in 2017. Brown has been a team captain for two season playing at Elk River High School. She is also an Academic All-State selection.
" Dilara has had a lot of success in high-level tournaments and I believe that will merge nicely into playing college tennis,” Osborn noted. “Dilara has a powerful game with a big forehand and strong serve and her ability to serve and volley should allow her to have success playing doubles at the college level. I believe Dilara has the ability to come in and compete in both singles and doubles towards the top of our lineup next season as a Freshman and look forward to working with her in Fall of 2018."
Dilara Spicer is a four-star recruit from Ridgewood, New Jersey. She has a current UTR of 8.35 and has been as high as 8.93 before her move from Kansas to New Jersey. Spicer has been ranked as high as 105 in the nation in 2017 by Tennis Recruiting. She won the US Open doubles sectional qualifier as a freshman. Spicer progressed to the final US Open qualifier in New Haven, Connecticut at Yale’s campus and got to the semifinals as a sophomore. She was ranked as high at #3 in the Missouri Valley section girls 18s for two years. Spicer has numerous high school sectional tournament victories in both singles and doubles. She won a few pro matches and has made it to the round of 16 women’s ITF 10,000k.
The Siena women’s tennis program is undefeated in the 2017-18 season and gets back on the court on Saturday, January 27 at UConn.
