Saint Anselm tabs Tiberii to lead women's tennis

MANCHESTER, N.H. – Saint Anselm College has announced the hiring of Matt Tiberii as the Head Coach for the women's tennis program.

Tiberii comes to the Hilltop from Suffolk University where he guided the Rams women's tennis program for the previous two seasons. He also served as the Associate Head Coach for the men's tennis team at Suffolk.

"Matt's enthusiasm for the sport and his experience as a successful collegiate head coach will elevate our program," remarked Director of Athletics Daron Montgomery. "His knowledge of the New England tennis landscape will help Saint Anselm recruit strong student-athletes."

Appointed as the interim Head Coach for the Rams men's and women's tennis programs prior to the 2017-18 campaign, Tiberii's charges made back-to-back appearances in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference (GNAC) postseason and recorded 13 victories across those two campaigns.

With the men's program, Tiberii mentored the 2018 GNAC Rookie of the Year and his team was cited by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) with two student-athletes earning Scholar-Athlete distinction.

"I am very excited to join the Hawks family as the Head Coach for the women's tennis program at Saint Anselm," remarked Tiberii. "I am thankful for the opportunity to lead this team and mentor distinguished student-athletes on the court and in the classroom."

Tiberii has more than 20 years of tennis teaching experience, working as a Tennis Professional for the Parks and Recreation Department in North Reading, Mass. He served as the Director of Tennis at the Resorts North Country Club from 2013 through 2018 and was the boys tennis coach at Austin Preparatory School in 2016 and 2017.

"I am grateful for my time at Suffolk, but I am looking forward to a new challenge in NCAA Division II," said Tiberii. "The athletics administration at Suffolk provided me with my first collegiate coaching position and I am thankful for their support of the program and my leadership."

He currently serves as the Head Coach of girls tennis at North Reading High School, guiding the Hornets to a 25-14 (.641) record and two Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) State Tournament appearances.

Tiberii is also an active tennis professional at the Woburn Racquet Club and the Marcus Lewis Tennis Center. A native of North Reading, Tiberii is a graduate of fellow Northeast-10 Conference member American International College and continued his education at Salem State University.
