Men's Tennis Adds Seven
WILMORE, Ky. – Asbury University men’s tennis coach Jarred Miller announced the signing of seven to his 2011 class. The Eagles signed two players who were ranked in the top six of their respective states during their senior years.
“Overall the kids in this class are a perfect fit for Asbury athletically, academically and spiritually,” head coach Jarred Miller said. “They add even more depth to an extremely deep team while giving us more power at the top of our lineup. They open up a lot of opportunities for us to continue to become more competitive in our conference and hopefully on the national scene as well.”
Nathan Schley (Chattanooga, Tenn./The Baylor School) is a three-star recruit according to tennisrecruiting.net. He was ranked as high as sixth in the state of Tennessee during his senior year and is in the top 300 in the country. He helped lead The Baylor School to second place in the Tennessee state tournament. Schley was a state qualifier in doubles in 2011. As a freshman Schley won districts in singles and was a region runner-up. The following season he repeated as district champion and was a semi-finalist in both the region and state tournaments.
