NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Quinn Gleason and Julie Vrabel have each signed National Letters of Intent to attend the University of Notre Dame in the fall of 2012, Irish head coach Jay Louderback recently announced.

"We are very excited about the impact this year's class can have on our future," said Louderback. "Both Julie and Quinn not only have a chance to impact our singles lineup but also help bolster our doubles. Julie plays an all court game with the ability to hit with some power. She is very smart on the court and can adjust to all types of opponents. Quinn is very athletic and moves well especially forward. She has the game to finish a lot points at the net. Their competitive nature should fit well with our program."

Vrabel, a native of Centreville, Va., comes to the Irish having earned national ranking each of her four years according to tennisrecruiting.net in each the fall, winter and spring seasons. While not competing with her high school team at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, Vrabel competed in several junior tournaments, including winning the 18s doubles title at the National Open as well as finishing second at the national winter championships in Arizona.

Along with the doubles success, she also placed fifth in singles at the National Open, while claiming the title of an L3 national 18s event. Along with her individual accomplishments, Vrabel also took part in a mixed doubles exhibition match in which she and her partner defeated a team anchored by Richey Reneberg who, in '92, was part of the No. 1 ranked doubles team in the world.

Vrabel, a blue chip prospect, ranks as the top player in the class of 2012 from the state of Virginia, while ranking 26th overall and fifth out of the Middle Atlantic region. She finished with four wins against fellow blue-chip prospects in the class of `12, while also going 12-1 against five-star recruits and 8-1 against four-star players.

Quinn Gleason


A native of Mendon, N.Y., Gleason played tennis all four years at Honeoye Falls-Lima High School in section 5 of the New York school district under the direction of Josh Bartalotta, earning varsity letters each of her four years. Over the course of her first three seasons, Gleason helped her team go undefeated along with winning the conference, sectional and regional title each season.

A two-time team captain and three-time team MVP, Gleason also was tabbed all-conference, all-city, all-region, all-county and all-state during each of her first three seasons. Gleason, who played with the boys' team during her senior season, concluded her high school career with a record of 103-2 at No. 1 singles in section 5 matches.

Gleason, the second ranked senior in the class of 2012 in the state of New York, earned national recognition in the recruiting rankings. She represents the 33rd best prospect nationally in the senior class as well as being the eighth-best player coming out of the Middle Atlantic region. In addition, Gleason has put together seven wins against blue chip recruits in the class of 2012, while going 15-3 against fellow five-star prospects and a perfect 21-0 against four-star players.
