Fraser and Garvey Sign with Houston Tennis

Dec. 1, 2009

HOUSTON - The University of Houston tennis program is excited to announce the signing of two standout student-athletes in Celia Fraser and Josephine Garvey who join the squad during the upcoming fall and should have an immediate impact on the program.

"Assistant coach Jo Keene was the point person for these two recruits," said head coach John Severance. "It is very comforting that all of our staff members have the ability to recruit such top-notch athletes to Houston. A good program has its entire staff on that same page, and this recruiting class is a direct result of that."

"My recruiting skills have evolved during my five years here at Houston and having Josephine and Celia sign National Letters of Intent is a testament to all our hard work," Keene said.

Fraser is a 6-foot player who hails from Birmingham, England, and is expected to be a top player in the Cougars' lineup as a freshman, featuring a 100+ mph serve. She holds a top-10 junior ranking in England as well as a current LTA rating of 3.2.

"Celia is one of the best players I've had the chance to recruit," Keene said. "I look for her to be an impact player right from the start."

"We are excited about Celia," Severance said. "She is a fantastic athlete with so many tools - strength, height, movement, athleticism, ability and tennis bravado."

Rounding out the incoming class is Josephine Garvey. Garvey stands 5-foot-8 tall and is a native of Saltburn-by-the-Sea, England. She possesses a solid base of tennis skills, and coaches plan on her continued development as a solid contributor on the Cougars roster for four years.

"Jo (Josephine) has a lot of coachable attributes along with a great attitude," Keene said. "She should be competitive from the start."

"One could deduct that from her court knowledge and work ethic, along with her skills on the court, that Jo is going to be a great asset to our program," Severance said."
