Virginia Men's Tennis Signs Justin Shane
CHARLOTTESVILLE – The Virginia men’s tennis team announced the signing of Justin Shane (Falls Church, Va.) to a National Letter of Intent during the November signing period. Shane, one of the top American players in the class of 2010, will join the Cavaliers next fall.
“Justin is the type of player and person we are looking for in this program,” said head coach Brian Boland. “He is a serious student athlete and I fully expect him to excel at UVa. Justin is committed to developing his tennis and playing at the next level, which is consistent with the players on our team. He has a tremendous upside, a strong work ethic and love for the game. He is a perfect fit for UVa and I am excited to work with him.”
Shane is the No. 7 ranked recruit in the class of 2010 by tennisrecruiting.net. He won the Virginia AAA State Championship last season and has won several Boys 18s National Opens. Last summer he reached the round of 16 of the USTA National Hardcourt Boys 18 Championships in Kalamazoo.
“I couldn’t be more excited about becoming a Cavalier,” said Shane. “UVa has it all — great coaches, tennis players, and academics. I am also happy to be able to stay in my home state of Virginia.”
