Anwar, Sosonkin and Williams Sign to Make up Margiasso’s First Women’s Tennis Recruiting Class

PHILADELPHIA – University of the Sciences Head Women's Tennis Coach Nick Margiasso has announced the signings of Myra Anwar, Diana Sosonkin and Myka Williams to complete his first recruiting class at USciences.

"We really reinforced the foundation of a successful women's program and set ourselves up for an even stronger future with the signing of Myra, Diana, and Myka," Margiasso commented. "A lot of the credit here goes to Associate Athletic Director Scott Sisson and Athletic Director Marc Caserio in dealing with bringing this trio in as I was just starting, but being a part of those discussions I knew these three were great fits."

University of the Sciences women's tennis tied a program record by advancing to the CACC Semifinals for the third year in a row in 2018.
