COACH CIARLEGLIO ANNOUNCES 2013 RECRUITING CLASS

WESTON, Mass. - On behalf of the Regis College men's tennis team, Coach Ciarleglio is extremely pleased to welcome three new freshmen players for next fall.

Nathan Cohen (Randolph, Mass.), Nick Hildreth (Harvard, Mass.) and Jeremy Morgenbesser (Bayport, N.Y.) will be joining Jarid Polley (Reading Mass.), who committed to Regis in February. All four will be impact players for the program, strengthening the team and helping us to build on our 2013 NECC Championship season.

Nathan Cohen is a competitive and talented player who has been involved with tennis since the age of 8. At age 10, he started playing USTA tournaments and battled his way into the top-10 of his age group in New England. He continued this impressive play into the Boy's-12's division, and once again was ranked in the top-10, competing in two sectional tournaments and one zonal championship. In high school, he played four years of varsity tennis at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, Mass. He enjoys hanging out with friends after school and playing baseball and soccer. Nathan chose Regis because he sees it as a great fit for him due to the quality of the academics, the faculty, the men's tennis program and student life. Nathan will be studying biochemistry at Regis.

Nick Hildreth will be joining the Regis team after playing tennis competitively for the last six years, four of them on varsity for the Bromfield High School boys' team. Hildreth is a solid player with very good volleys, a quality serve, and plenty of doubles experience. He is currently playing No. 1 doubles for Bromfield after being in the No. 2 doubles slot during his sophomore year. Nick enjoys hard rock, is a comfort food person, and is a fan of Rafael Nadal. When he's not studying or playing tennis, he enjoys video games and card games or watching great movies, like The Matrix trilogy and the Star Wars Saga. Nick plans on majoring in Business with a minor in Psychology.

Jeremy Morgenbesser has been playing tennis since he was three and has had the pleasure of working with Chris Evert at her academy in Boca Raton, Florida. Currently playing No. 1 singles, he played varsity tennis at Bayport-Blue Point High School for five years. Jeremy was named the "Best Player" for both his sophomore and junior years. During the fall, winter, and summer, he plays at Westhampton Beach Tennis and Sports Club and at Eastern Athletic Clubs in Blue Point, N.Y. Morgenbesser has also been teaching tennis for several years, and will be getting his USPTA Certification this spring. Outside of tennis, Jeremy enjoys lifting almost daily and skiing during the winter months. He has two siblings, his sister Emily and brother Max, as well as two dogs, Skeeter and Rafael. Jeremy looks forward to coming to Regis, to playing on the tennis team and immersing himself in everything the college has to offer. He will be majoring in Health & Fitness Studies – Exercise Science, with an eye towards grad school for physical therapy.
