The Register’s two-time Area MVP for girls tennis has already determined where she will be playing come the fall of 2019.
North Haven’s Julia Migliorini verbally committed to play tennis for Providence College last Tuesday.
“I had a good feeling when I went to Providence in the spring (on an unofficial visit),” said Migliorini, who will be a senior. “My (future) teammates were great. I like the idea of playing in the Big East. The competition will be extremely strong and I will be able to travel all over. That’s really something cool to me and exciting.”
The 5-foot-9 Migliorini hasn’t lost a match in the regular season since her first one as a freshman. She has a 74-4 record over the last three years.
She also considered Marist, Fairfield, Holy Cross, Trinity and Conn College. But they all seemingly paled in comparison to Providence. The Friars’ tennis coach, Jakob Klaeson, texted Migliorini on Tuesday.
“He said he was eager to know my decision and I didn’t want to keep him waiting,” Migliorini said. “So I gave him a call and told him that I wanted to be a Friar. He can bring my tennis to the next level. I made sure to ask that he was sticking around as a coach to help me reach that next level.”
Migliorini now gets to begin her final year at North Haven without the pressure of having to decide where she will continue her tennis career.
“I’m very happy that the recruiting process is all over with. I can go into my senior year stress-free knowing I’m going to college and playing tennis in college. It doesn’t get much better than that.”
