Championship Environment

NCAA Tennis Championships... an athens tradition the Dan magill tennis Complex has played host to the Women’s ncaa tennis championships and the men’s ncaa tennis championships a combined 28 times. in fact, the first year the ncaa crowned a men’s tennis champion through tournament format (1977), Georgia served as the host site. the Bulldogs took advantage of being at home in 2007, winning the program’s fifth ncaa title. though 2007 marked the first time Georgia has played host to both men’s and Women’s ncaa tennis Championships in the same year, athens was not new to championship tennis. the women’s championship has been held in athens four times since tournament format was implemented in 1982. the first of those was in 1994, in which the hometown Bulldogs captured their first title in program history with a 5-4 victory over stanford. the tournament returned to athens in 2004, 2005 and in 2007. most recently, the Bulldogs advanced to the final four in 2009 and ended the year at no. 3 in the final ita rankings. one of Georgia’s two women’s singles champions earned her honors in athens as well, as angela lettiere was the 1994 ncaa singles champion. Georgia’s best ncaa singles finish recently came in 2009 when freshman Chelsey Gullickson advanced to the semifinals and earned a final ranking of no. 6.

2010 Season Preview

BUllDoGs Battle the Best In athens In 2010

T

he nation’s top teams will descend on Athens in May for the NCAA Tennis Championships, and the Georgia Bulldogs aim to be in the mix for another national title. Head coach Jeff Wallace begins his 25th season at the helm, and his 2010 squad features seniors Lara Fakhoury, Yvette Hyndman and Naoko Ueshima, juniors Cameron Ellis and Alex Raffalovich and super sophomores Nadja Gilchrist and Chelsey Gullickson. Gilchrist and Gullickson are returning All-Americans while Ueshima and Ellis combined to go 42-4 in dual matches to earn All-SEC second team honors. Georgia will be looking to make its 24th consecutive NCAA Championship appearance in 2010. Georgia has been ranked in the top 10 since March of 2007, and there are only two other schools (California and Georgia Tech) that can make that claim. Georgia ended the 2009 season ranked No. 3. During the fall season, the Bulldogs played in a number of tournaments across the country in preparation for the team dual matches. The fall is a time players fine tune their game. For the most part, Georgia battled to keep everyone healthy but the experienced lineup should be poised for a big season when January rolls around. “We had some highlights in the fall, and the most important thing in the spring will be to stay healthy and get the practice time on the courts for the dual match season,” said Wallace. Ellis saw the most action in the fall, posting an 8-5 singles record. She finished up with an impressive showing at the Duals in the Desert event in California, going 4-0 in singles and 3-0 in doubles with Ueshima. In the grand slam touranments, Gullickson advanced to the finals of the Riviera All-American Championships. Then in the ITA National Indoors, she was hampered by a leg in-

jury during her first round match. “The highlights of the fall included Chelsey reaching the finals of the All-American and the way Cameron finished up at the final event in California going undefeated,” said Wallace. With a veteran lineup, the fall season is not so much about the tennis but conditioning as they prepare for the grind of a full collegiate season. In 2009, Georgia had six different players clinch a match and Ueshima led this group with eight match-clinching victories. Gullickson was next with seven while Ellis, Hyndman, Gilchrist and Monika Dancevic had three apiece. The Bulldogs had three matches end 4-3. Ellis got the clinching win in straight sets at #11 Clemson and versus #9 Southern California in the quarterfinals of the ITA National Team Indoors in Madison, Wis. Hyndman secured the win over #7 Baylor in Athens with a clutch three-set victory. “All great teams are full of players who can step up on any given day,” said Wallace. “It was exciting last year knowing a lot of players enjoyed being in that last match, and when it came down to them, they delivered. It brought out their best and now they have that confidence and experience to come through again this season.”

senIor star naoko Ueshima has won nearly 90 percent of her team dual matches, posting a mark of 64-8.

With its top-notch facilites, Georgia has the luxury of playing a majority of its matches at home in 2010. Outside of a few trips around the Southeastern Conference and a day trip to Atlanta, the Bulldogs will compete at the Dan Magill Tennis Complex. Georgia begins the 2010 season with a 19-match home winning streak including going 13-0 last year. The Bulldogs will play host to the SEC Tournament (April 2225) and the NCAA Championships (May 20-31). Georgia will look to again serve as an NCAA first and second round host site, meaning the Bulldogs could make their last trip in early April. “There are three big team events each year -- the Indoors, the SEC Tournament and NCAAs, and we’ve got two of them here in Athens so that’s exciting,” said Wallace. “We’re really looking forward to that.” Georgia will enter 2010 as the defending SEC regular season champions, and it has won three straight SEC Tournaments. The Bulldogs were in the hunt at the National Team Indoors as finalists and at the NCAAs by reaching the semifinals. Georgia aims to be right in the thick of the title chase once again.

a

s the nation’s winningest active women’s tennis coach, Jeff Wallace enters his 25th season at the helm of the Georgia Bulldogs. Wallace has built the Bulldogs in to one of the most elite college programs that both wins and plays host to NCAA Championships. In 2009 following another memorable campaign when Georgia advanced to its 10 NCAA Final Four, Wallace became the first person to ever be named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association National Coach of the Year four times. The 2010 and 2012 NCAA Championships will be played at UGA once again. Georgia went 27-3 and ended 2009 ranked No. 3 after advancing to the NCAA semifinals. It

was the 21st time in Wallace’s 24 years that the Bulldogs concluded a season ranked in the top 10, and it was the program’s best finish since 2002. The Bulldogs reached the finals of the ITA National Team Indoors, won another Southeastern Conference title and followed that up with their third straight SEC Tournament title.

proven winner During his tenure, Wallace’s squads have claimed two NCAA championships, three USTA/ITA National Team Indoor titles and seven Southeastern Conference crowns. A four-time National Coach of the Year recipient and four-time SEC Coach of the Year, Wallace’s career record is 527-127. His .806 winning percentage is the best among active Division I coaches with a minimum of 400 victories. Wallace’s teams are the picture of consistency. With the 2009 NCAA bid, Georgia has appeared in 23 straight NCAA Tournaments and has advanced to the “Final Four” 10 times. Only once during his time as coach of the Bulldogs has the team missed the NCAA Tournament, and that was his first year back in 1986. In 2008, Georgia’s lineup did not feature any All-Americans yet maintained a top 10 ranking throughout the season, getting as high as No. 2 twice, and posted a final record of 22-5. Georgia avenged three of its losses during the year including over top-ranked Georgia Tech in Atlanta and one to Florida that earned the Bulldogs another SEC Tournament crown. Wallace, who notched his 500th career win in 2008, was named the Wilson/ITA South Region Coach of the Year.

NCAA singles semifinals and tied a school record with 69 combined wins. Gullickson and Gilchrist became the first freshmen in school history to play No. 1 doubles. Another example is Agata Cioroch who arrived from Poland in 2001 and played No. 5 for the Bulldogs as a freshman. Two years later, she became Georgia’s top talent and in 2004 was the No. 1-ranked player in college tennis for much of the season. Cioroch concluded her career as a five-time All-American with two grand slam singles titles. Strong doubles teams are a key component for a successful college tennis team. There have been six Bulldog tandems under Wallace to finish the season ranked No. 1. Georgia tennis has thrived under Wallace. While the depth of talent can vary each season, the results remain consistent. This was no more evident than in 2002. Despite having only one player earn All-America honors, Georgia went undefeated during the regular season, won the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor title, the SEC championship and advanced to the NCAA “Final Four.” The 2002 squad finished with a 26-2 record and final national ranking of No. 3. Georgia went 13-0 at home and extended its home winning streak to 50 straight. In 2007, he led a squad ranked 24th in the preseason to a final ranking of No. 4 and an NCAA Quarterfinal appearance. They dropped just one regular-season contest en route to becoming SEC regular season and tournament champions. Wallace was named the 2007 SEC Coach of the Year for his efforts. In 2008, Georgia repeated as SEC Tournament champions and finished the year ranked No. 8.

Developing talent His record for developing players and having them maximize their potential has been evident throughout his tenure. In 2009, two of Georgia’s top players were freshmen Chelsey Gullickson and Nadja Gilchrist, and by the end of the year, they had earned All-America honors. Gullickson was named the ITA National Rookie of the Year, advanced to the

success in wallace era In 21 of the past 24 seasons, Georgia has finished with a top 10 national ranking including No. 1 in 1994 and 2000. In the Wallace era, six Bulldogs have won grand slam titles, two have won the Honda-Broderick Award for tennis, 26 Bulldogs have earned All-America honors 80 times, and 44 Bulldogs have been listed on the SEC Academic Honor Roll.

playing/Coaching Career A 1985 graduate of the University of Georgia, Wallace capped his playing career under legendary Bulldog head coach Dan Magill in 1984 after winning the SEC singles title at the No. 6 spot. The very next season, his first as coach of the Bulldogs, Wallace led a struggling team up the path of respectability by posting a 20-9 mark and landing a spot in the final Volvo Tennis/ITCA Top 25 poll. In 1987, just two years removed from a losing record, Georgia advanced to the national championship match. Although they didn’t win it that year, the Bulldogs would have their day. 1994 ncaa national champions The 1994 season ranks as one of the most dominant ever in women’s tennis history. It found Georgia on the champion’s pedestal in every major team tournament possible: NCAA Champions, USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Champions, and SEC regular season and tournament champions. Top that all off with a 27-2 overall record including a perfect 14-0 SEC mark and a season sweep of arch-rival Florida and it’s easy to see why Wallace was named coach of the year.

2000 nCaa national Champions The 2000 Bulldogs went 27-2, winning the Southeastern Conference title and the NCAA National Championship. In the title match on the campus of Pepperdine, Georgia dethroned the defending champion Stanford Cardinal 5-4, snapping a 48-match winning streak. Wallace was named the Wilson/ITA National Coach of the Year. Usta/Ita national team Indoors Under Wallace, the Bulldogs have been among the most successful teams at the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Championships. The annual event held in Madison, Wis., attracts the nation’s finest programs. The Bulldogs have won the title three times (1994, 1995, 2002) and have reached at least the semifinals 14 times. family A native of Portland, Ore., Wallace is married to the former Sabina Marie Horne. They have two children, Brittany Sabina (21) and Jarryd Jeffrey (19). Brittany is a junior at Valdosta State while Jarryd is a sophomore at Georgia. Jarryd was a member of the Bulldog cross country team but a leg injury cut short his career. Sabina, a former All-SEC distance runner at Georgia, was inducted into the North Bay (Ontario, Canada) Sports Hall of Fame in 1996. She has continued to run competitively and has helped Wallace train for road races and marathons. Sabina is the track representative for Georgia’s “G” club, an alumni association for University of Georgia letter-winners. Also, Wallace received the 2002 Distinguished Alumni Award from the Recreation and Leisure Studies department of the University of Georgia’s College of Education.

A Program of Excellence: Georgia Tennis History

T

he Georgia tennis program began from humble origins in 1966 as a club sport under Jo Ann Kemp. It was established under the auspices of the AIAW in the 1973-74 season and later the NCAA in 1982-83. The Bulldogs have amassed an all-time record of 707-230 for a .755 winning percentage. The first head coach for the program was Jane Kuykendoll, and she directed the team for four seasons (55-16). Greg McGarity took over in 1978, and the team won the GAIAW State Tournament earning the program’s first post-season berth, qualifying for the AIAW Regionals. McGarity led the program until 1981, posting a 51-44 career mark. Lee Meyers served as the third coach (1982-83). In 1982, Georgia made the AIAW Nationals. After Meyers, Cissie Donigan was Georgia’s fourth coach, going 34-29 in two seasons. It was during this time that Georgia had its first All-American, Lisa Spain. She won the 1984 NCAA singles title and also was the Honda Award winner for tennis. Current coach Jeff Wallace became the fifth coach in school history in 1986, and in 2008, he notched his 500th career win. The program has become one of the nation’s best with two NCAA team titles to date. In Georgia’s first trip to the NCAAs, coming in 1987, the Bulldogs advanced to the finals. In 1994, Georgia dominated the collegiate tennis world going 27-2. They won the SEC championship (14-0) as well as the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor Title, and ultimately the NCAA Championship as they defeated Stanford 5-4 in the finals before a crowd of 3,117 in Athens. Angela Lettiere, the 1994 College Tennis Player of the Year and recipient of the prestigious Honda Award for tennis, led the Bulldogs to their first NCAA team title, and a few days later, she won the singles title. In 2005, Lettiere was inducted into Georgia’s Circle of Honor, the highest honor a Bulldog student-athlete or coach can achieve. In 1995, Georgia won its second straight USTA/ITA National Team Indoor title. They were ranked No. 1 for almost the entire year before finishing No. 3 after reaching the semifinals of the NCAAs. In 1998, the Bulldogs advanced to the NCAA semifinals for the fourth time in school history. In 2000, Georgia claimed its second NCAA title, dethroning Stanford 5-4 and ending a 48-match Cardinal winning streak. Georgia won the national championship on the campus of Pepperdine in Malibu, Calif. The following year, the Bulldogs won the SEC Tournament and advanced to the NCAA semifinals. In 2002, Georgia captured the USTA/ITA National Team Indoor title, the SEC championship and went undefeated during the regular season for the first time since 1975. The Bulldogs advanced to the NCAA semifinals for the sixth time in school history and finished up 26-2. In 2004, Georgia went 20-5, advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals and ended the year ranked seventh nationally. Georgia continues its tradition, making NCAA appearances and earning a final ITA ranking among the nation’s Top 25. In 2007, the Bulldogs won both the SEC regular season and the SEC Tournament, finishing with a 24-2 overall record and final ITA rank of No. 4. The Bulldogs repeated as SEC Tournament champions in 2008 and finished with a final ITA rank of No. 8. In 2009, they won the SEC again and made it three in a row at the SEC Tournament. Then, they advanced to the 2009 Final Four and ended up with a final ITA rank of No. 3 The Bulldogs benefit from one of the best facilities in all of collegiate tennis in The Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The complex has played host to the NCAA Men’s Tennis National Championships 24 of the past 32 years and has served as host to the women’s event in 1994, 2004, 2005 and 2007. The event returns to Athens in 2010 and 2012.

eorgia national champion tennis player Angela Lettiere was one of three former Bulldog athletes honored at a Circle of Honor induction banquet in September 2005. The UGA Circle of Honor is the school’s highest tribute paid to former Bulldog athletes and coaches. The all-sports recognition program is designed to recognize and pay tribute to extraordinary student-athletes and coaches who, by their peformance and conduct, have brought honor to the university and themselves, and who by their actions have contributed to the tradition of the Georgia Bulldogs. The criteria also stipulates that each recipient has earned his or her academic degree. Along with Lettiere, the Class of 2005 featured All-America football player Jim Wilson and national champion gymnast Corrine Wright. Lettiere concluded her collegiate tennis career on a high note, winning the 1994 NCAA singles championship and leading the Bulldogs to both the NCAA and SEC team titles. During her career, she was one of only two players in collegiate history to play in three consecutive ITA Grand Slam Finals in one season: the NCAA Championships, the Rolex National Indoor Championships and the Riviera All-American Championships. In addition to her singles dominance in 1994, Lettiere teamed with Michelle Anderson to become Georgia’s first women’s Grand Slam national champion doubles team, winning the Rolex National Indoors. Lettiere and Anderson finished 1994 as the nation’s top-ranked women’s collegiate doubles team. In 1994, Lettiere was named National Player of the Year and SEC Player of the Year while earning All-America honors in both singles and doubles. Lettiere, a marketing major, also made the SEC Academic Honor Roll as a senior.

dan Magill Tennis Complex

The Dan Magill Tennis Complex plays host to numerous events including an annual Tennis Block Party to promote the game to children.

The Dan Magill Tennis Complex When it comes to facilities, the University of Georgia tennis programs are second to none. Many visiting coaches have tabbed the Dan Magill Tennis Complex on the UGA campus as “the best in the nation.” Georgia played host to the 1994, 2004, 2005 and 2007 NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships It returns in 2010 and 2012. In 1994, the Bulldogs delighted the home crowd by winning their first NCAA team title. Georgia beat Stanford, 5-4, in front of 3,117 fans.

Evolution

The first tennis courts on campus were located east of the Arch alongside Broad Street at the turn of the century. In the 1930s and 1940s, there were six red clay courts in front of LeConte Hall, where the Journalism-Psychology complex is today. Since then, there have been several projects that have helped make this facility one of the best in the land: 1958: Georgia’s tennis facility was relocated in the spring when six rubico (dirt) courts were constructed. 1968: Georgia changed to a hard surface as the courts were converted to Grass-tex. 1977: The current Henry Feild Stadium (4,500) was built and named for the late Henry Feild, the Bulldogs’ No. 1 player in 1964-66. Feild died in an automobile accident in January of 1968. Georgia began to play host to numerous national tournaments including a 13-year run of the NCAA Championships (1977-89). 1980: Thanks to the generosity of alumnus Lindsey Hopkins, Jr., Georgia’s 1,200 seat indoor facility was built. 1984: The Joe Heldmann Pavilion was constructed along with the men’s Collegiate Tennis Hall of Fame. 1986: The Mid-Court grandstand was added. 1987: Tournament headquarters was built behind court four plus a locker room and press room were added. 1988: An electronic scoreboard was added to the stadium by court one thanks in part to alumnus Alfred E. Thompson. 1989: A restaurant pavilion was constructed adjacent to the first three courts. 1991: Actress Kim Basinger, an Athens native, was largely responsible for the addition of lights to Henry Feild Stadium. 1992: A new press box was added atop the grandstand of the upper courts. 1993: At the 1993 NCAA Men’s Championships, the entire tennis facility was named the Dan Magill Tennis Complex for the legendary Georgia coach. 1994: A renovated pavilion area adjacent to court one was completed. Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 1999: A new electronic scoreboard/message center was added, allowing fans to follow the action on all six courts. 2003: New men’s and women’s tennis clubhouses along with 12 new courts completed. 2004: Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 2005: Georgia played host to NCAA Women’s Tennis Championships. 2007: Georgia played host to NCAA Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships for first time in same year. 2010: Georgia will play host to the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Tennis Championships and again in 2012.

Both times they defeated long-time nemesis Stanford for the title. In 1994, it was only fitting considering the Cardinal had ousted Georgia in six of its first seven NCAA appearances. In 2000, Georgia dethroned the defending national champion Cardinal and halted its 48-match winning streak with a 5-4 victory. Prior to the 1994 national title, Georgia’s best showing came in its debut in 1987. That year, the Bulldogs reached the finals, falling to Stanford, 5-1. Georgia has served as an NCAA first/second round site nine times since 1999, owning a perfect record of 18-0. Georgia did not play host to the early rounds in 2003 and 2006. Individually, the Bulldogs boast two national champions. Lisa Spain, Georgia’s first All-American, captured the NCAA singles title in 1984. Angela Lettiere captured the 1994 national singles title a decade later. In 1992, Shannan McCarthy was the runner-up to Florida’s Lisa Raymond. In 1994, the All-America tandem of Lettiere and Michelle Anderson was the nation’s topranked doubles team and top seed at the 1994 NCAAs, but a foot injury sidelined Anderson. Consequently, the duo was forced to withdraw from the tournament, but they had accumulated enough big wins to remain No. 1 in the final rankings. Similarly, in 1998, Georgia’s top-ranked and FINAl FouR FINAlIsTs top-seeded doubles tandem of Vanessa Castellano and Marissa Catlin were forced to withdraw when Catlin contracted mononucleosis a week before the championships. That duo finished the season ranked third.In 1999, the All-American duo of Catlin and Castellano posted one of the greatest seasons in history, winning two Grand Slam titles (Clay and Indoor) and reaching the finals in the other two (All-American and NCAAs). 2009 2000 1987 They were ranked No. 1 the entire regular season and at season’s end. In 2000, the tandem of Catlin 2001 2002 1994 and Lori Grey clinched the NCAA team title and then 1995 1998 a few days later advanced to the doubles final. They 1989 1991 also finished the season ranked No. 1.

Grey and Agata Cioroch became the fifth Georgia duo to end the season ranked first in the nation in 2003. They reached the 2003 NCAA quarterfinals in doubles while Cioroch made it to the semifinals of the singles. In 2005, Shadisha Robinson and Caroline Basu gave the Bulldogs their sixth duo to end the season at No. 1 in the ITA rankings as the pair went a school record 28-4. Georgia played host to the NCAA Championships in 1994, 2004, 2005, and 2007. This season, and again in 2012, the NCAA Championships return to Athens and the Dan Magill Tennis Complex.

Road to the National Championship

T

he 1994 team will always be remembered for winning the national championship at home, but that was merely a culmination of the achievements that year. Georgia posted a 27-2 record including a perfect 14-0 in the SEC. Georgia claimed its first-ever team title in early March, winning the USTA/ITA National Indoors. In fact, Georgia won 21 of the 24 matches it played and never had to play doubles, which was a first for the indoor team champion. Senior Angela Lettiere and freshman Michelle Anderson became the first Bulldog duo in history to capture a “Grand Slam” doubles title, winning the Indoors while Lettiere was also a singles finalist. Lettiere later would win the NCAA singles title. With the Indoor team title, Georgia assumed the No. 1 ranking, marking another first for the program. At that time, the Bulldogs had every player in their lineup ranked among the top 100 in singles along with two of the nation’s top three ranked doubles teams. The NCAA finals saw Georgia go up against its long-time nemesis, Stanford, a team that had eliminated them in six previous NCAAs and one they had never beaten. At times, it looked like Stanford would take a 4-2 lead into doubles, but Stacy Sheppard won her singles match to tie it at 3-3. Then, Georgia’s outstanding doubles duos took over to win 5-4 as Sheppard and Tina Samara clinched the title much to the delight of the 3,117 sun-drenched fans at Henry Feild Stadium. The Bulldogs had won it all.

T

he 2000 tennis team captured the program’s second NCAA title, including the first one on the West Coast. Prior to this title, Georgia’s men’s and women’s teams had combined to win four NCAA crowns, but all came in Athens. Georgia displayed the potential to win it all early in the season, rolling through league play with an undefeated 11-0 mark and an SEC title. In fact, by April, the lone blemish on a 19-1 overall record was a 4-3 loss to top-ranked Stanford in the semifinals of the USTA/ITA National Team Indoors that took place in February. In the SEC Tournament, No. 5 Florida upset No. 2 Georgia, but the Bulldogs avenged that loss and one to Stanford at the NCAA Championships in Malibu, Calif. Georgia cruised through the early rounds, winning its first two matches in Athens and then two more in Malibu before posting another win over Florida in the semifinals. Georgia had set up its rematch with Stanford. The Cardinal, riding a 48-match winning streak, was an overwhelming favorite to repeat as champions by everyone not wearing red and black. The Bulldogs forced Stanford to doubles, splitting the singles as Aarthi Venkatesan, Marissa Catlin and Anne Nguyen won at Nos. 1, 3 and 6 in the lineup. Venkatesan outlasted Marissa Irvin, who was ranked 78th in the world, in the feature match. In doubles, the No. 2 team of Venkatesan/Knox picked up a win and then at No. 1, the second-ranked duo of Catlin/Lori Grey clinched the national title 9-8 (3), winning a tiebreaker over the fourth-ranked team of Irvin/Teryn Ashley.

2009 sEC Final standings

The Nation’s Top Tennis Conference The Southeastern Conference women’s and men’s tennis programs continue to be among the nation’s leaders on the collegiate hardcourt and the trend continued this past season. The conference made another strong national showing in 2009 as Georgia advanced to the NCAA semifinals. On the men’s side, Georgia and Ole Miss advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals. All six of the SEC’s national women’s team titles have come in the last 15 years with Florida claiming four (1992, 1996, 1998 and 2003) and Georgia two (1994 and 2000). In the NCAA individual championships, Florida has won four singles and four doubles titles while Georgia has two singles crowns and Mississippi State has one in doubles. Meanwhile, all six national men’s team titles for the league have been captured by Georgia (1985, 1987, 1999, 2001, 2007, 2008). In the 2009 NCAA women’s singles tournament, Georgia freshman Chelsey Gullickson advanced to the semifinals while in doubles, the Tennessee duo of Natalie Pluskota and Caitlin Whoriskey advanced to the semifinals. A total of seven student-athletes were named ITA All-Americans to put the totals at 110 singles and 120 doubles honors since 1990. The league has garnered six NCAA women’s singles titles since 1984 and five NCAA women’s doubles titles since 1989. The last NCAA individual title won was in 2001 by Florida’s doubles team of Whitney Laiho and Jessica Lehnhoff. In the 2009 NCAA men’s singles tournament, Ole Miss freshman Devin Britton claimed the title with a three-set win over Ohio State senior Steven Moneke. The SEC has 17 NCAA singles champions in men’s tennis dating back to 1930, with nine of those titles coming since 1984. Six of the ten doubles titles have come since 1993. Seventeen ITA All-America honors were bestowed upon SEC players in 2009.

In 1995, the second team consisted of all doubles honorees (by position and at-large). In 2006, the format was changed again, removing distinctions between singles and doubles. 1981 Lisa Spain 1982 Leigh Shepard, Lisa Spain 1983 Lisa Spain 1984 Lisa Spain 1986 Jane Cohodes 1987 Alice Reen 1989 Shannan McCarthy, Caryn Moss, Stacey Schefflin, Jill Waldman 1990 Caryn Moss, Shannan McCarthy, Stacey Schefflin 1991 Angela Lettiere (S), Shannan McCarthy 1992 Shannan McCarthy, Shawn McCarthy, Stacy Sheppard 1993 Anne Chauzu (D), Angela Lettiere (D), Stacy Sheppard 1994 Michelle Anderson (S&D), Anne Chauzu (D), Brooke Galardi (S) Angela Lettiere (S&D), Lisa Salvatierra (D), Tina Samara (D), Stacy Sheppard (S&D) 1995 Michelle Anderson (S&D), Anne Chauzu (S&D), Tina Samara (D), Stacy Sheppard (S&D) 1998 Vanessa Castellano (D), Marissa Catlin (S&D), Aarthi Venkatesan (S&D), Jane Reid (D) 1999 Vanessa Castellano (S&D), Marissa Catlin (D) 2000 Marissa Catlin (S&D), Lori Grey (D), Esther Knox (S), Anne Nguyen (S), Aarthi Venkatesan (S) 2001 Agata Cioroch (S) 2002 Agata Cioroch and Lori Grey (D), Tina Hojnik and Mariel Verban (D) 2003 Agata Cioroch /Lori Grey (D), Tina Hojnik/Douglas Wink (D) 2004 Jitka Schonfeldova (S), Alexandra Smith (S), Douglas Wink/Natalie Frazier (D) 2005 Caroline Basu (D), Shadisha Robinson (D) 2006 Caroline Basu, Natalie Frazier 2007 Natalie Frazier, Monika Dancevic, Yvette Hyndman 2008 Monika Dancevic, Yvette Hyndman 2009 Moika Dancevic, Chelsey Gullickson, Nadja Gilchrist

(Only Named from 1980-81, ’84-’89) Note: There were no SEC individual champions in 1982, ’83 and 1990-present, since the championship tournament followed a dual match format in those years. Therefore, the players which are listed for 1980, ’81 and 1984-89 are individual winners of a flighted format. However from 1993-94, the SEC singles and doubles champions were those singles players and doubles teams which won the Coaches’ Indoor Tournament held each fall. No singles or doubles champions have been recognized by the SEC after the 1994 season.

The Jeff Wallace Georgia Tennis camp is held on the campus of the University of Georgia at the nationally renowned Dan Magill Tennis Complex. The $7.5 million upgrades to the complex make it a showcase for collegiate tennis and camps. Approximately a one-hour drive from Atlanta, the Magill Tennis Complex consists of 12 outdoor courts, four indoor courts along with a fine clubhouse. Campers will be housed at one of our fully supervised, air-conditioned dormitories just a few minutes from the courts. Dining facilities are adjacent to the dormitories and will provide healthy, wellbalanced meals. The camp will be strictly monitored to ensure that campers do not stray unsupervised at any time.

T

he Athletic Scholarship Endowment Program was instituted to allow supporters of the University of Georgia Athletic Association to invest in the educational opportunities of

UGA student-athletes. The program is vital to the future of Georgia Athletics by providing the long-term solution of keeping pace with escalating expenses. A gift to establish a scholarship provides income towards funding a scholarship each year and permanently memorializes the donor or any individual whose honor the scholarship is named. A full scholarship is endowed through a gift of $150,000. There are four women’s tennis scholarship endowments including one established by the UGAAA in honor of the 2000 team which won both the NCAA and SEC titles. For more information about the Athletic Scholarship Endowment Program or other giving opportunities, please contact the UGAA Development office at (706) 542-9220.

Leighton Ballew Scholarship Endowment Naoko Ueshima is the 2009-10 recipient of the Leighton Ballew tennis scholarship. It is awarded annually to an international student-athlete who has demonstrated commitment to the University in an outstanding manner, both in the classroom and on the court. If no international student-athlete exists, selection of a student-athlete recipient is based on the aforementioned criteria. The late Mr. Ballew was a UGA faculty member for 40 years and founded the drama department. 1999: Vanessa Castellano 2000: Zoe Mellis 2001: Aarthi Venkatesan 2002: Tina Hojnik 2003: Agata Cioroch 2004: Agata Cioroch

Barbara Hartman Howell Scholarship Endowment Nadja Gilchrist is the 2009-10 recipient of the Barbara Hartman Howell tennis scholarship. It is awarded annually to a scholar-athlete on the women’s tennis team who has a stated purpose of graduating. The scholarship was established by Barbara Hartman Howell’s lifelong friends Vickie Pruitt Farmer and Leon Farmer, Jr. for her many years of dedication to and love of the Georgia Athletic Association and in memory of her daughter, Amanda, who passed away suddenly on July 22, 2007 at the tender age of 26. Vickie and Barbara graduated from Athens High School Class of 1969 and were Phi Mu sorority sisters at UGA. 2009-10: Nadja Gilchrist Doyle E. Mote Scholarship Endowment Cameron Ellis is the 2009-10 recipient of the Doyle E. Mote women’s tennis scholarship.

Originally from Calhoun, Doyle graduated from the University’s School of Pharmacy in 1950 and was a pharmacist in Lynchburg, Va., for 36 years. 2002: Mariel Verban 2003: Anne Nguyen 2004: Agata Cioroch 2005: Caroline Basu 2006: Caroline Basu

The 2002-03 season marked the first year the UGAA Women’s Tennis Scholarship Endowment was awarded. 2003: Lori Grey 2004: Douglas Wink 2005: Natalie Frazier 2006: Natalie Frazier

Graduates of the University of Georgia, Vickie (AB ’73) and Leon (BBA ’64 and JD ’67) have fully funded multiple scholarships for studentathletes in 12 different Bulldog sports. A women’s tennis student-athlete received one of these endowments in 2006 (Shadisha Robinson) and 2007 (Natalie Frazier). Doris Marie Ramsey Scholarship Endowment Established by the late Bernard B. Ramsey in honor of his beloved wife, Doris Marie Ramsey, this endowment creates 10 athletic scholarships, continuing the legacy of the Ramsey name. These scholarships benefit two scholar-athletes in football, two in other men’s sports, two in women’s sports, and four pursuing post-graduate educations at UGA. Women’s tennis standout Alexandra Smith was a recipient of one of these scholarships from 2002-04.

President, Athletic director and Senior Staff dr. Michael F. Adams

damon Evans

University President

Director Of Athletics

Dr. Michael F. Adams was named the 21st president of the University of Georgia on June 11, 1997. He immediately focused on securing UGA’s future as one of America’s premier public research universities. Widely recognized as a leader in higher education administration, he also has held a number of significant leadership positions in intercollegiate athletics. He is currently the chairman of the NCAA Executive Committee, the highest governance body in the NCAA. It is composed of 13 campus presidents and chancellors who oversee association-wide issues. The committee is charged with ensuring that each division operates consistently with the basic purposes, fundamental policies and general principles of the association. He has been chair of the Southeastern Conference and is a member of the Knight Commission on Intercollegiate Athletics. A college athlete himself - he lettered in track at Lipscomb University - he values athletics as an important part of the college experience for athletes and non-athletes alike. A strategic plan, completed in 2001 at his direction, identified three themes for UGA’s growth in the first decade of the 21st century: Building the New Learning Environment, Maximizing Research Opportunities and Competing in a Global Economy. Under Dr. Adams’ leadership, student quality has risen steadily and the University of Georgia has been recognized as one of the nation’s very best public research universities for eight of the past 10 years by U.S. News & World Report. External funding for research, public service and instruction totals more than $200 million annually. Private giving is at its highest level ever; UGA completed the Archway to Excellence Campaign on June 30, 2008 with more than $630 million, well above the $500 million goal. He holds a bachelor’s degree in speech and history from David Lipscomb College. He earned a master’s in political communications and a doctorate in political communications, with a cognate emphasis in educational administration, from The Ohio State University. At OSU, he was named a University Fellow, the highest academic recognition given by the graduate school. He holds an academic appointment as a professor of speech communication at UGA.

UGA letter winner and double degree holder Damon Evans was selected as Director of Athletics in December 2003, and assumed the duties officially on July 1, 2004. At the time he was just 34 years of age, and one of the youngest athletic directors in the country. However, he had already established himself as an up and coming athletic administrator. Evans has received several honors including the Street and Smith’s Sports Business Journal “40 Under 40 Award” for 2004, 2005, and 2007, the UGA Terry College of Business Award as the “Outstanding Young Alumnus,” and Sports Illustrated’s “101 Most Influential Minorities in Sports”. Today, Evans oversees a nationally recognized program with 21 intercollegiate sports teams involving more than 600 student-athletes, an $84 million budget and a 260 person staff. He is a member of several Southeastern Conference and NCAA Committees, Chairman of the NCAA Division I Leadership Council, and is involved in volunteer and community service roles across the state of Georgia. He was born in Nebraska, but spent much of his youth in Gainesville, Georgia where he graduated from Gainesville High School after a stellar career both athletically and academically. During his football career at Georgia (1988-92), Evans earned a starting assignment four consecutive seasons, played in three bowl games (‘89 Peach, ‘91 Independence, and ‘92 Citrus) and was a member of the ’91 and ’92 teams that won nine and ten games, respectively. He earned two degrees from the University of Georgia, receiving a bachelor’s degree in finance in 1992 and a master’s of education in sports management in 1994. Evans joined the staff at the University of Missouri, serving as Director of Compliance and Operations (1994-95). After holding the positions as a Director and Assistant Commissioner for Eligibility and Compliance Services at the Southeastern Conference (1995-98), he returned to his alma mater. Before his appointment as UGA Director of Athletics, he held titles of Associate and Senior Associate A.D. for Internal Affairs. He is married to the former Kerri Budd of Atlanta and they have two children, Cameron and Kennedy.
