Persistent Solomon Makes a Strong Connection at Belmont

The first time Abigail Solomon emailed Belmont University head coach Maurcio Anton, she never heard back. But Solomon was undeterred. The Knoxville, Tennessee native remained persistent in her pursuit of a response.

Solomon figured Antun was likely extremely busy since he coaches both programs at Belmont. A short time later, Solomon sent another email. Within 30 minutes of sending the second email, Antun emailed Solomon back and they arranged a phone call.

“He actually said during that first conversation that we had good energy together and it's really true,” Solomon said. “I wanted a coach that I could be really open with about my tennis and that I feel like really understands me, and I feel that way with him."

The coach, the proximity and the education were all factors that led Solomon to commit to Belmont. The four-star rising senior took official and unofficial visits to the campus in nearby Nashville and felt comfortable in the environment.

"Nashville is a really cool city and the campus is really close to downtown," Solomon said. "I am also close enough to home to see my parents on the weekend if I want and they can come visit and watch me play as well."
