Jesuit’s Pagliarulo to play tennis for St. Joe’s

Jesuit senior tennis player David Pagliarulo has committed to St. Joseph’s University, Tigers coach Joe Curtis said Monday.

Pagliarulo was a member of last season’s Jesuit team that won its 17th district titles in 18 seasons and finished fourth at the Class 2A state tournament, as the then-junior captured his third district individual title at the Tigers’ No. 3 position.

Curtis said Pagliarulo is slated to move up to the No. 2 position this season behind Jordan Nasser as the Tigers will be losing last season’s No. 1 Jamie Sullivan, who has decided not to play high school tennis.

Paglarulo will join Nasser as the Tigers’ No. 1 doubles team, where Jesuit finished as the 2A state runner-up a season ago (Nasser and Sullivan).

“David is a very experienced, four-year starter for us who is adept in singles and doubles,” Curtis said. “He has been one of the best players on the court playing from the No. 3 individual spot and with the No. 2 doubles team, now he’ll step up in the No. 1 doubles and I know he certainly has the ability to be successful there as well.”
