Preparing to finish up his first year as LMU women’s tennis head coach, Agustin Moreno recently finalized the addition of two players for the fall of 2016, as Camila Tumosa and Siobhan Anderson have officially signed NLIs to play for the Lions.

Tumosa, a native of Rosario, Argentina, earned a No. 2 national ranking at the age of 15 in the Under 16 division, while also earning her first WTA point. She cracked the WTA rankings with three points at the age of 16, and won two Grade 4 ITF Tournaments when she was 17 en route to being tabbed No. 265 in the ITF rankings. Most recently, she earned three more WTA points in singles while also competing in doubles.

“Camilla brings a wealth of experience having played on the WTA Tour at the Futures and Challenger level,” Moreno said. “Obviously she has a lot of experience playing around the world, and Argentinians are well-know to be hard workers in the sport, and I am sure she will be a great contributor to our program.”

Anderson, a native of Sydney, Australia, played at Queenswood and was the top player at her high school for the six consecutive years she competed. A semifinalist at the prestigious Tildesley Shield Tournament her final year, she only dropped one game in the six years she played singles at the annual Queenswood School Championships. She is currently ranked the 76th player in Australia for all age groups, and 13th for her birth year. Anderson recently won a Bronze Australian Money Tournament (AMT) in both singles and doubles. She also won a Gold AMT in Newcastle and reached the semifinals of a Platinum AMT in singles in Adelaide earlier this year.

“Siobhan has played a lot in the Australian circuit, and has done very well,” Moreno said. “Australia has a long history of producing some of the world’s top tennis players, so she has experience playing at a very high level. I think Siobhan and Camila will both contribute and help push our program forward toward our goals when they arrive in the fall.”

 

 

LMU is preparing to play its final two matches of the regular season this week, traveling to San Francisco on Friday (11 a.m.) and Santa Clara on Saturday (12 p.m.).
