VESTAL, N.Y.—Binghamton men’s tennis coach Adam Cohen has secured another European standout to bolster his roster for the 2013 spring season.
Cohen will welcome Sid Hazarika (Coventry, England) to campus in January. Hazarika signed a National Letter of Intent last April but deferred enrollment until the spring.
Hazarika was ranked among the top-10 in both 18’s and 16’s in the United Kingdom. His highest ITF junior ranking was No. 292 and Hazarika reached a year-end junior ranking among the top 40 in the ETA in boys’ 16’s.
“I am excited to have Sid join our men’s tennis team this upcoming semester,” Cohen said. “Sid has enjoyed a good amount of success at the junior level both within England and Europe. I believe he will make a strong contribution to our team’s success this upcoming semester and the years to come.”
Cohen’s 2013 roster will include players from nine different countries.
Binghamton men’s tennis is one of the premier programs in the America East in any sport. Cohen, four-time conference Coach of the Year, has led the Bearcats to five consecutive America East crowns. His program has also produced the highest team GPA of any sport from any school in each of the last two years.
The Bearcats open their spring season with a match at Toledo on January 26.
