Bouchelaghem Joins Husky Roster
SEATTLE -- At the start of winter quarter, Washington welcomed in a new addition to the current roster, as France's Cesar Bouchelaghem arrived in Seattle and has been practicing with the squad now for over a week. Bouchelaghem will shortly be eligible to compete for the Dawgs this season.
A native of Pallud, France, Bouchelaghem is a young and talented player, just seventeen years of age, but with a career-high Universal Tennis Rating of 12.55, which ranks fourth among current Huskies.
"While Cesar is still young, he has good experience playing in Europe and I think he has a great foundation with his game to continue improving," said Head Coach Matt Anger.
Bouchelaghem is ranked 198 in the ITF world junior rankings and he has reached the semi-finals or better in ITF events in five different countries.
"I am so happy to have found this coaching staff and this university and I can't wait to play with my teammates," said Bouchelaghem.
