Providence, R.I.-Rhode Island College has named Briana Tartaglione as an assistant women’s tennis coach. She will assist Head Coach Adam Spring with all facets of the program including scouting, recruiting, administering practice and match coaching.


Tartaglione is currently a teaching assistant at Wellesley Middle School, a position she has held since August 2014. She is responsible for monitoring student’s progress, as well as helping them develop skills and knowledge in areas not otherwise taught in general education programs. Tartaglione previously served as an in-school substitute at Cabot Elementary School.




“I’m beyond excited to have to opportunity to work with the women’s tennis program at Rhode Island College,” Tartaglione said. “Not only are the ladies motivated and driven individuals, but we share a passion for the sport, which has been exemplified during the start of our season. “


“Briana is an outstanding leader and motivator,” Spring said. “These qualities will be of great assistance to our program as we move forward. As a former captain of my Smithfield High School team, she always demonstrated the highest level of competitiveness and sportsmanship while on the court. I’m confident she will bring that same spirit to our program and I am grateful for the opportunity to work with her this fall.”


Tartaglione graduated from Northeastern University in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in communication studies.


She currently resides in Smithfield, Rhode Island.


The Anchorwomen are currently 3-1 on the season and will host Gordon on Thursday, Sept. 10 (4 p.m.).
