Women's Tennis Adds Two in Class of 2016
The two have impressive regional and national credentials, making Princeton's class No. 12 in the nation according to the TennisRecruiting.net winter rankings. Seven of the eight Ivy League programs are ranked on that list's top 25 or receiving votes.
Both future Tigers are from the Mid-Atlantic region, with Amanda Muliawan coming from Wyckoff, N.J. and Emily Hahn from Richmond, Va.
Muliawan is the top player in her class in New Jersey according to the April 11 rankings on TennisRecruiting.net, as well as the No. 4 player in the Mid-Atlantic region and No. 23 player in the nation. Muliawan's status as the top player in the Garden State is nothing new, as the Star-Ledger named her its Player of the Year for 2009 after she won the NJSIAA singles championship. TennisRecruiting.net also ranks her as one of just 25 blue-chip recruits in the nation.
On the high school circuit, where girls tennis is a fall sport in New Jersey, Muliawan finished her career at Ramapo High with a 63-2 record, all at first singles.
Hahn, who has spent the last two school years competing at the Saviano High Performance Tennis Academy in Florida, was named the 2009 all-metro Girls Player of the Year at Douglas Freeman High by the Richmond Times-Dispatch before she headed for the Sunshine State. Hahn is the No. 1 Virginian in her class according to the April 11 TennisRecruiting.net rankings while standing as the No. 7 player in the Mid-Atlantic and No. 32 in the nation. The site ranks Hahn as a five-star recruit.
The pair will help the Tigers recover from graduating two accomplished seniors in Hilary Bartlett and Rachel Saiontz. Bartlett, Princeton's top singles player, has won first-team All-Ivy League honors in both singles and doubles in each of her first three years while being named the 2010 Ivy League Player of the Year. Saiontz has earned three straight second-team All-Ivy singles honors, two straight second-team All-Ivy doubles honors and one All-Ivy honorable mention in doubles as a freshman.
