“I am very proud of Aaron, and I know he will succeed not only playing tennis for Brown, but academically as well,” Walsh coach Rocco Cona said in a press release. “He is a very bright, focused young man, and I know he will flourish at Brown.”
Sandberg has received various Sportsmanship awards from the United States Tennis Association (USTA), and was ranked 25thin the country by the USTA at 16 years of age. Sandberg received a Silver Medal in doubles at the 2011 International Children’s Games held in Scotland and finished in the quarterfinals of the Cleveland Racquet Club Professionals doubles tournament in 2013.
“Aaron is a quick, athletic individual who is going to be a big player for us,” Brown coach David Schwarz said in a press release. “He is a team player with great skill and we are very excited to have him join our team.”
Sandberg, a Hudson resident, is a member of the National Honor Society at Walsh and has a 3.7 grade-point average. He plans to major in political science or law at Brown.
