ST. LOUIS - Saint Louis University head men's tennis coach Jon Zych has announced that Luis Miguel Flores (Mexico City, Mexico) will attend the University and compete for the Billikens beginning this fall.

"Miguel will arrive at SLU as a highly accomplished junior tennis competitor," Zych said. "He has defeated five ATP ranked players and has reached No. 3 in Mexico's rankings for juniors.

"Miguel has a wealth of successful international experience, including competing in the Orange Bowl tournament as a junior," Zych said. "We are confident he will grow personally and competitively as a SLU student-athlete."

A five-time state champion, Flores won a national tournament in Mexico two consecutive years and was rewarded with a month-long trip to Europe to represent his country in competition. In addition to the Junior Orange Bowl, he has competed in the prestigious Eddie Herr and Prince Cup junior tournaments. Flores also has participated in ATP Futures singles and doubles matches since turning 14.
