Four are Maryland natives, three are from Virginia, two hail from New Jersey and one is from Ohio.
Among the women's recruits is former Central High School standout Molly Barb, who played No. 1 singles and doubles for the Falcons this past season as she advanced to the VHSL Group A state semifinals.
The other two women's recruits are from New Jersey. Amy Rapp and Amber Lake were teammates at Pennsville High School.

The fall seasons begin in September and conclude with their respective ITA Regional Tournaments.
