Rice men’s tennis coach Efe Ustundag announced Tuesday the signing of Polish junior standout Karol Paluch to a letter of intent to join the Owls for the 2018-19 season.
Paluch is currently ranked 322nd in the ITF junior rankings and has a Universal Tennis Rating of 12.93. He is a member of the Polish national team, a six-time national champion in doubles and was ranked in European Top 30 in the E-16 division.
“Karol is a solid addition to our team and will join with Adam Oscislawski (who signed in December) to give us two talented freshmen to join our team this fall,” Ustundag said.
Ustundag’s Owls will open their 2018 fall season with a return trip to Alabama’s Four in the Fall Tournament in September.
