Huskies Add In-State Prospect For 2012-13
Nov. 12, 2011
SEATTLE - Washington men's tennis coach Matt Anger has added another top local prep to the Husky men's tennis team, as Wenatchee's Hudson Barnhart has committed to UW. Barnhart is the first member of UW's 2012-13 class.
Barnhart attends Wenatchee High School, and is rated as the No. 2 recruit in the state of Washington for the class of 2012 by tennisrecruiting.net. The same site lists him as a four-star recruit and he has been as high as 58th nationally this year, and 40th nationally in 2010.
"Ever since I was young I dreamed of playing tennis for Washington," says Barnhart. "The coaching, team, facilities, and academics at UW were everything I was looking for in the right college for me."
Barnhart was third in the 2011 Washington State 4A Singles Championships, and won the 2009 4A state doubles title.
"I think Hudson is a smooth all-around player who has the capability to really jump up once he's in our program," Anger says. "I'm very impressed with how he's done being from a small town without a lot of high level practice opportunities."
He'll join an increasing list of talented Washington state players to become Huskies over the last three years, including Max Manthou of Tacoma, Nicholas Kamisar of Sammamish, Emmett Egger of Issaquah, and Dragos Puscalau of Newcastle.
