Fall Signing Week '13: Miller and Broda Pick Notre Dame

It seems that life is much more fun when you can do things with your friends. Even going to college!

Brooke Broda is heading to Notre Dame
That is the case of Blue Chip recruits Allison Miller and Brooke Broda, two friends who decided to become members of the University of Notre Dame women's tennis team. Miller, from Norcross, Ga., and Broda, who hails from West Chester, Ohio, will sign their National Letters of Intent later this month, as they will become members of the Fighting Irish program next year.

The two future collegiate stars have been friends for about two years. Broda and Miller have played doubles together on two occasions, at Winter Nationals and a National Open. They were on opposite sides of the court in doubles at Spring Nationals, but have never met in singles.

"We've practiced together many times," said Miller, ranked No. 25 on the Babolat Recruiting Lists. "She's an incredible practice partner, very focused, and gets right to work." The hard-working Broda, to whom her friend referred, is ranked No. 8 on the national recruiting lists.

The Notre Dame women's tennis team is led by head coach Jay Louderback, in his 25th season at the Irish helm. Louderback has guided his team to national top-30 finishes in each of the last 21 seasons, and skippered the Irish to the NCAA Championships a total of 20 times. In addition to nine Round of 16 appearances and three trips to the quarterfinals, Notre Dame made the Final Four in 2009 and 2010. Notre Dame left the Big East Conference this year and is now competing in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Broda, who is ranked No. 8 nationally, is a 5-foot-7 left-hander, also considered North Carolina, and Northwestern.

"I am very excited to be going to Notre Dame, especially with Allie," Broda said. "I feel as though this is the best place for me, both academically and athletically, and I am looking forward to beginning this next chapter of my life."
