Rapid Fire with Sahana Raman

James Maimonis, Manager, Media & Communications | January 12, 2021

ACTON, MA - Sahana Raman, from Acton, MA, is a senior at Acton-Boxborough Regional High and the current No. 9 ranked junior in the New England Girls’ 18s rankings. Her junior success has led her to commit to Middlebury College in Vermont, where she’ll compete at the NCAA DIII level this fall. 


“Division III has a nice between academics and tennis, which I really like. Middlebury also has a really good pre-med program, which I’ve been possibly looking into as an option,” Raman said. “Coach (Rachel) Kahan was always very nice and transparent about where she was at, and she and the rest of the coaches made a big difference for me when deciding.”


Raman will be joined at Middlebury by New England friend and rival, Nina Farhat, who also committed as part of the Class of 2025. 


In her four USTA New England tournaments since September, Raman has placed third or better in three of them, including a Level 4 Championship at The Tennis and Fitness Center of Rocky Hill and a Level 5 Championship at the Manchester Athletic Club. She hopes to continue her success in 2021.
