W.T. “Dub” Robinson TENNIS STADIUM

Since 1970, the W.T. Robinson Tennis Stadium has been the home of the LSU tennis program. The “Dub”, as it is affectionately referred to, has also undergone numerous renovations and improvements to keep up with collegiate tennis facilities across the nation. Both the nationally-ranked Tigers and Lady Tigers enjoy state-of-the-art locker rooms, a squad room and brand new showers and bathrooms. The “Dub” was totally refurbished after the 2002 season to include a media room, an equipment room and a ground-floor viewing area for handicapped tennis fans. Robinson Stadium, named in honor of LSU’s former winningest tennis coach, was completed in 1970 and is the site of the Tigers’ and Lady Tigers’ home outdoor matches. It features six varsity courts and six practice courts. Both the varsity and practice courts were resurfaced prior to the 2007 season, and new lights were added to the varsity courts after the season. The varsity courts feature an electronic scoreboard along with six individual electronic scoreboards for each court that were added before the start of the 2009 season. The stadium can accommodate up to 550 spectators. Since Tony Minnis took over the LSU women’s tennis program, the Lady Tigers have accumulated a 171-72 overall record at home. Their best season there came in 2000, where the Lady Tigers remained perfect at home throughout the season for only the third time in the stadium’s history. They advanced all the way to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 that year as well. LSU has only had one losing season at home since the Tony Minnis era began in 1992 with the rest of the years producing above-.500 marks.

“I always knew that I wanted to pursue a professional career once my eligibility was over in college, so I wanted a school that would help me reach that goal. Because of its strong reputation and tradition, I chose LSU. I wanted to go to a school that was hardworking on and off the court and that would also improve its players’ games, and I found that at LSU. Being at LSU brought the best out of me and has made me a better team player, and that has been priceless for me in the real world. I think fondly of my time on the LSU team, and I am proud to be a part of the Lady Tiger family.” “When you go back and get your degree, it says a lot about your work ethic. I accomplished things that I will never forget here. I come home to Miami, but a lot of people don’t know me like everyone in Baton Rouge and the fans. Baton Rouge and LSU has been my home. If I had to do it all over again, LSU would be the only place I would do it.”

“Throughout the entire recruiting process I always knew LSU was the best choice. Being from the great state of Louisiana, LSU was a home away from home. I knew that this would be a place I could grow as a student-athlete and a young man. The coaches, faculty, and the 92,000 marvelous fans only help to make the decision much easier. Looking back on it, I couldn’t have asked for more from the experience.”

“This is a tremendous honor to graduate from LSU. Coming from Texas, I always knew this was the right choice. From my time on the court to the classroom, LSU has been home to me. Getting a degree is what it is all about and I thank everyone who had an impact on my time at LSU. What we accomplished and all of the friends I have made, that will always be a part of my life.”

HISTORY


About LSU Retired Jerseys

The retirement of the jerseys of Casanova, McDonald, Macklin and Augustus comes under a new provision of the LSU jersey retirement bylaws that says the retirement of an athlete’s jersey in a particular sport does not preclude a current student-athlete in that sport from wearing the jersey number in that or any other sport, subject to the discretion of the head coach. This provision applies only to jerseys retired after January 1, 2007, so the numbers worn by Maravich, Pettit, O’Neal, Cannon and Bertman may never again be worn by future student-athletes in their respective sports. To have a jersey retired at LSU, an athlete must have completed intercollegiate competition for LSU a minimum of five years prior to nomination. Athletes must have demonstrated truly unusual and outstanding accomplishments, exceeding and in addition to all criteria used for Hall of Fame selection. Nominees must have a unanimous vote of support from the Hall of Fame committee.

He led the Tigers to two Elite Eight appearances and the 1981 Final Four in Philadelphia. He still holds the school single game rebound record with 32, a mark like some of the great records in any sport that may never be broken.

Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics

LSU

Joe Alleva LSU Vice-Chancellor/Director of Athletics

Joe Alleva enters his third year as LSU’s Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics after being hired to lead one of the nation’s most powerful athletic programs on April 4, 2008. Alleva joined LSU after 10 years of outstanding leadership as the director of athletics at Duke University. He officially took over at LSU on July 1, 2008. The LSU Board of Supervisors approved a promotion in August 2009 for Alleva, adding vice chancellor to his title and expanding his role to the academic side of the university. It’s the first time at LSU that the director of athletics has also held a vice chancellor position. “I am honored to be named vice chancellor at this outstanding institution and thank Chancellor (Michael) Martin, President (John) Lombardi and the Board of Supervisors for the confidence they have shown in me,” Alleva said. “Athletics is the window through which many people view LSU and it is important that we excel in competition and in the classroom while demonstrating the utmost of integrity. I believe my promotion ties athletics closer to the university and that is a good thing for everyone; we are all on the same team.” Under Alleva’s guidance, LSU has reached new heights in terms of athletic success while continuing to be recognized as one of the top enterprises in college athletics. A veteran leader in college athletics, Alleva is dedicated to athletic and academic excellence. He is committed to providing the opportunities and the resources necessary for student-athletes to excel in competition, in the classroom and in the community. Alleva, 57, is well-respected for sustaining high standards of excellence and integrity in athletic programs, hiring the finest coaches in the country and the high level of success achieved by student-athletes. One of Alleva’s big initiatives on the LSU campus is the launching of a strategic plan for the continued success and future improvement of LSU Athletics. LSU Athletics has produced a new booklet called “LSU: Thru and True” designed to introduce a strategic plan for operating a top tier athletics program. The strategic plan booklet is titled “LSU: Thru and True” because, in the words of Alleva, “Our core values run deep and our commitment to excellence is relentless. At LSU, college athletics is an avenue for providing opportunities, for achieving goals, for generating enthusiasm and for nurturing passion.” The subtitle of the booklet is “Excellence in Competition, Distinction in the Classroom, and Contribution to the Community.” The strategic plan addresses various topics including quality of life for student-athletes; academic and athletic excellence; compliance and ethics; financial responsibility; diversity, inclusion and equity; tradition and history, and service and communication. The plan also includes a vision for the future of LSU athletics facilities, highlighted by plans to improve North Stadium Drive between Tiger Stadium and the Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Alleva is an innovator with bold ideas that benefit not only LSU but all of Greater Baton Rouge. Alleva was instrumental in the planning of the inaugural Bayou Country Superfest, a two-day country music concert and festival held in Tiger Stadium last spring. The event attracted nearly 100,000 visitors to the LSU campus and made a tremendous economic impact upon the local community. Seventeen of LSU’s 20 sports programs participated in post-season competition in 2009-10, including the Tiger football squad that played in a bowl game for the 10th straight season. Six LSU teams posted Top 10 national finishes last season, and 12 were ranked among the Top

25. LSU finished in the Top 20 of the Learfield Director’s Cup rankings, which measure overall athletic success for institutions across the country. Under Alleva’s direction in 2008-09, all 20 LSU sports competed in NCAA post-season play for the first time in school history, and it culminated with the baseball team winning the national championship. In addition, six teams finished in the top 10 nationally. LSU was the only school in the Southeastern Conference to participate in a bowl game and the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball tournaments during 2008-09. Furthermore, LSU student-athletes volunteered a total of 2,360 hours for community service projects. LSU earned a ninth place ranking in the 2008-09 Learfield Director’s Cup, as the Tigers were second only to Florida among SEC institutions. LSU accumulated points in 18 of a possible 20 categories in the standings, also a first for the school. Upon being hired at LSU, Alleva immediately made an impact by hiring Trent Johnson to lead the men’s basketball program. Johnson, the 2009 SEC Coach of the Year, wasted little time in turning the Tigers into a winner as LSU claimed the 2009 SEC regular season title and reached the second round of the NCAA Tournament. LSU also had top 10 national finishes in 2008-09 in gymnastics, men’s and women’s indoor track and field and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field. Thirteen of LSU’s 20 sports finished the year ranked among the top 25 in the nation. The Tiger football team capped their 2008 season with a 38-3 win over 14th-ranked Georgia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. During the offseason, Alleva helped secure the funding necessary for the addition of a state-of-the-art artificial turf practice field, which complements the surface the Tigers have in their indoor practice facility. The addition of the outdoor artificial turf field gives the LSU football program one of the nation’s finest all-around facilities. Not only did LSU teams set records but so did the fans, as over 1.5 million fans filled venues on the LSU campus in 2008-09. LSU set the school record for overall attendance in the sports of football, baseball, and softball. Alleva oversaw in the spring of 2009 the grand opening of two of the premier baseball and softball facilities in college athletics, Alex Box Stadium and Tiger Park. In addition, LSU opened a new gift center for its fans – the LSU SportShop. The LSU SportShop, a spectacular, freestanding facility that features the latest in LSU apparel and merchandise, is located adjacent to Mike’s Habitat. Under Alleva’s guidance, LSU has one of the most lucrative apparel and shoe contracts with Nike while also having one of the nation’s most attractive multi-media rights contracts with CBS Collegiate Sports Properties. LSU athletic budget is now approaching $85 million, which allows the university to compete at the highest level in the nation. Alleva has a long-term vision for continued improvements to LSU’s athletic facilities in order to insure that the Tigers are among the best in the country well into the 21st Century. One of his top priorities is the enhancement of Tiger Stadium and making Tiger Stadium and the North Stadium Drive corridor a showplace for the university.

Alleva’s innovative plan is to make a plaza area between the Maravich Assembly Center and Tiger Stadium that would recognize LSU’s national championship teams and distinguished alumni. This special area, along with Mike’s Habitat, and the LSU SportShop, would become the focal point for visitors to campus. LSU opened in the spring of 2010 a basketball practice facility that houses both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The new basketball practice facility features two full length courts as well as locker rooms and other amenities for both squads. Alleva is also overseeing a major renovation to the golf course at the University Club that will be completed in September 2010, and he is developing plans for a new gymnastics practice facility, indoor tennis center and improved soccer facility. LSU’s world-renowned track and field program will receive a state-of the-art running surface this year when a new track is installed in Bernie Moore Stadium. “Joe Alleva brings a wealth of experience and accomplishment to LSU,” LSU President John Lombardi said of hiring Alleva. “I’m confident we’ve found a new leader for LSU athletics who exemplifies the vision and integrity needed to lead our sports programs to new heights, a champion of student athletes who believes in the highest standards of competition both on the field and in the classroom.” Alleva’s impressive tenure as director of athletics at Duke propelled the university into the ranks of America’s top all-around collegiate programs. Among his outstanding list of accomplishments includes the greatest 10-year period in Duke athletics, winning more ACC and NCAA championships than in any other decade in school history. Also, his fundraising reached extensive heights providing new facilities or renovations for all 26 sports at Duke, which enhanced the experience for every studentathlete. Alleva is active on the national collegiate athletics scene, having served on the Football Bowl Certification Committee. He sat on several Atlantic Coast Conference committees and served on the NCAA Division I Championships/Competition Cabinet. Alleva majored in Finance at Lehigh University and received his bachelor’s degree in 1975. While at Lehigh, Alleva was the quarterback of the football team and team captain in 1974. Alleva also played on the Lehigh baseball team. He served as a graduate assistant football coach and earned an MBA in 1976. Alleva began his 32-year career at Duke University in 1976. He spent 28 years in the athletic administration prior to becoming director of athletics in 1998. Alleva played a key role in Durham’s community sports scene. He started Little League Baseball in Durham over 20 years ago, and also began the American Legion baseball program Alleva is a member of the North Carolina American Legion Hall of Fame, Suffern High School Hall of Fame and the Rockland County Hall of Fame. He currently serves on the Louisiana State Board of the Special Olympics. Alleva and his wife, Annie, have three children, J.D., Jeff, and Jenny.

The Southeastern Conference The Southeastern Conference men’s and women’s tennis programs continue to be among the nation’s leaders on the collegiate hard court, and the trend continued this past season. The conference made another strong national showing in 2010 as both the Florida women and the Tennessee men reached the finals at their respective NCAA Division I Tennis Championships in Athens, Ga. Although the Gator women fell to Stanford in the NCAA title match, their run marked the

25th-straight year that at least one SEC team advanced to the national semifinals. In the women’s singles tournament, Georgia’s Chelsey Gullickson became the Bulldogs’ third national champion after upending No. 1 seed Jana Juricova of California, 6-3, 7-6 (7). On the doubles side, the Tennessee duo of Natalie Pluskota and Caitlin Whoriskey made it to the national final before they were taken down by Stanford’s Hilary Barte and Lindsay Burdette. All six of the SEC’s national team titles have come in the

last 17 years with Florida’s four (1992, 1996, 1998 and 2003) and Georgia’s two (1994 and 2000). The league has garnered five NCAA women’s doubles titles since 1989 when Mississippi State’s Jackie Holden and Clair Pollard took the title. The conference’s last national doubles title was in 2001 by Florida’s Whitney Laiho and Jessica Lehnhoff. Seven players have captured NCAA singles titles. This past year, Gullickson emerged as the league’s first singles champion since 1996.

The office of the commissioner was formed in 1940 in Jackson due to the great amount of detail work developing, especially in recruiting and eligibility. Former Mississippi Governor Martin S. Conner took office as commissioner Aug. 21, 1940. Conner later became ill and the secretary of the conference, Dean N.W. Dougherty of Tennessee, served as acting commissioner during the fall of 1946. The office moved to Birmingham with the appointing of Bernie H. Moore as the second full-time commissioner on Feb. 21, 1948. Moore, a former LSU coach, guided the SEC to national respect in his 18-year tenure. A.M. (Tonto) Coleman succeeded Moore upon his retirement April 1, 1966. The Alabama native, who was reared in Texas and experienced in athletic coaching and administration, served six and a half years. Dr. H.

HISTORY


2011 Season Preview

With a lineup featuring a sophomore and three freshmen, LSU’s 2009-10 season was a revelation for several youngsters on the squad who saw what it takes to succeed at the SEC and NCAA levels. While the Lady Tigers missed out on the NCAA Tournament, head coach Tony Minnis feels last year’s experience will push them to bigger and better things in 2010-11. “Last year really opened the eyes of a lot of our players,” said Minnis. “Sometimes you find yourself in a situation where you have a team that makes the tournament pretty much every year and then you miss it one year. I think we’ll be very hungry to get back there.” Gone are three seniors, including Nicole Kantor who played out of the No. 3 position last season and Hannah Robinson who was No. 6. However, coming in is an exceptional recruiting class that includes two five-star recruits, a four-star prospect and a Junior College national champion. Pair this gifted crop of newcomers with a talented young group of returning players that showed promise toward the end of last season, and this year’s squad appears primed to return to the NCAA Tournament. “We started playing some good tennis at the end of last season,” Minnis said. “If we can just focus on doing things right on a consistent basis, we have a shot to do pretty well.”

THE SENIORS

Kylie Adamek returns as the lone Lady Tiger senior, aiming to finish her career with a strong senior campaign. The Baton Rouge native will provide much needed leadership to the 2010-11 squad as the lone holdover from the teams that recorded back-to-back NCAA Tournament second round appearances in 200708 and 2008-09. “When she first got here, we were consistently in the top 25 and making runs, so she has that experience to really communicate to the younger players what it takes to play at that level,” said Minnis. “She’s done a great job as a leader.” Adamek finished the fall season playing well, pairing with Ebie Wilson to pick up a doubles win at the Wake Forest Fall Invitational. Playing possibly the best tennis of her career, she now looks to carry the momentum into the spring season. “I’m more confident in Kylie than I have ever been since she’s been here,” Minnis added. “She’s really improved a lot, and she played really well at the Wake Forest tournament at the end of the fall.”

THE JUNIORS

Whitney Wolf will once again lead the Lady Tigers in the spring season at the No. 1 slot. Since arriving on campus, Wolf has shown the potential to be a very good player who could be the leader of the team. The Pride, La., native led LSU with four wins over nationally-ranked opponents last season. She followed that up by compiling a 7-5 singles record in the fall, including three victories over opponents ranked in the ITA Preseason Top 35, which helped her skyrocket up the ITA national singles poll to No. 33 entering the spring. “The expectations for her are to compete at a consistent level day-in and day-out,” said Minnis. “What she showed us in the fall is she’s capable of being more consistent and competing at a consistent level.” After going 18-21 out of the No. 1 post last season, Wolf hopes to take the experience she gained last year and turn in a big campaign for the Lady Tigers. If she builds off her solid play in the fall, there is no telling how good Wolf could become. “The overall goal for her is to play with more consistency like she showed in the fall, and as well as she did in the fall, to keep working on that and to get it better and better,” Minnis said. “Once she understands mentally how to compete on a consistent basis, she can be one of the best players in the country.” The Lady Tigers will receive a significant boost when junior college transfer Olivia Howlett becomes eligible for competition. The 2010 Junior College national champion is expected to begin play on March 27 against Tennessee and will bring talent and experience to the team. “Winning the Junior College national championship speaks loudly for her,” Minnis said. “She is very similar to Whitney Wolf in her game style. We just want her to become a little bit more consistent.”

THE SOPHOMORES

THE FRESHMEN

Keri Frankenberger returns to lead a talented trio of Lady Tiger sophomores. A 2010 All-SEC Second Team and All-SEC Freshman Team selection, Frankenberger exploded onto the scene last season, collecting a 19-12 overall singles record while going 7-4 in SEC competition. Despite being somewhat limited by injury, the Gainesville, Fla., native managed to tally a 3-2 singles mark in the fall. “As well as she did last year, she’s reached another gear that she’s playing at this year,” Minnis said. “She’s hitting a bigger ball, and she’s playing with more confidence. We just have to focus on keeping her healthy because she had some injuries in the fall.” The former four-star recruit has also proven to be a solid doubles player. She went 20-15 in doubles matches last season and is expected to become even better this season. “In doubles, she’s instinctively one of the best players I’ve seen,” Minnis said. “She has a feel for the game and has some qualities in doubles that are really hard to teach.” Kaitlin Burns arrived at LSU last season with a stellar resume and wasted no time putting together a successful 2010 season. She opened the year with a seven-match win streak on her way to putting together a 20-18 overall singles record. Despite struggling a bit in the fall, Burns is expected to pick up where she left off last season. “She really surprised a ton of people last year by coming in and playing as well as she did,” Minnis said. “She struggled somewhat in the fall, but the ironic thing is she was a better player in the fall than she was a year ago. We just have to get her to relax a little bit more and focus on playing tennis because she’s one of the best competitors I’ve seen.” Ebie Wilson enters the spring season as perhaps LSU’s most improved player. It took some time for the Mobile, Ala., product to adjust to the college game last season, but she won four of her final six singles matches to end the year on a positive note. She built off her late season success by going 4-5 against tough competition in the fall. “Ebie has made the biggest improvement on the team from last year to this year,” said Minnis. “I’m expecting some big things from her just because she came back with the right attitude, the right focus, the right determination, and she’s playing some really solid tennis right now.”

The LSU women’s tennis program welcomed four freshman Lady Tigers to the team in the fall, helping make up coach Minnis’ second-consecutive stellar recruiting class. Hailing all the way from Weert, Netherlands, Yvette Vlaar joined the program as one of this season’s five-star recruits. She was listed as No. 310 in the world rankings and finished fourth in the World Junior Tennis Finals. Leading the freshmen with a 5-8 record this fall, Vlaar has the tools to become a key contributor for the Lady Tigers. “Yvette has unbelievable upside,” said Minnis. “Once she gets stronger and alters her game a little bit, she can be as good a player as we’ve had here.” A five-star prospect by TennisRecruiting.net, Ariel Morton came to LSU ranked as high as No. 34 nationally while in high school. An immensely talented player out of Houston, Morton is still adjusting to the collegiate level. However, with time Minnis anticipates her developing into a very nice player. “She’s got a lot of talent and fundamentally is as solid as any player we have,” Minnis said. “Once we get her stronger and more solid, she’s going to be a very good college player.” Alexus Coats arrived to Baton Rouge as another one of the Lady Tigers’ prized recruits. The Lithonia, Ga., native was a four-star recruit by TennisRecruiting.net and ascended as high as No. 65 in the rankings. With continued development of her game, Coats could grow into an extremely talented player. “Alexus is probably as athletic and as physically imposing a player as anybody we’ve had here,” Minnis said. “Her biggest obstacle is probably in the mental aspect of the game, and she needs to gain more experience. She showed some glimpses this fall of some really good stuff, and we just have to get her to become more consistent.” Hayley Everett joins the team as a walk-on from Mandeville, La. As a senior at Mandeville High School, she led her team to the 5-A state championship and also was part of the doubles championship. Everett compiled a 44-5 overall singles record in high school, and as an extremely hard worker, she hopes to contribute to the team. “Hayley has been working really hard and has improved aspects of her game,” Minnis said. “Her biggest obstacle is understanding the college game and acclimating herself to this level of competition. If she is able to translate practice into matches, I think you’ll see a lot of improvement.”

Tony Minnis enters the 2011 season as the most decorated coach in LSU’s 35-year program history. Entering his 20th season as head coach of the LSU women’s tennis team, Minnis has collected a host of accolades that make him one of the most respected coaches in the nation. With the Lady Tigers 5-2 win over Oregon in 2009, Minnis captured his 250th-career victory and was named the Southwest Regional Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his 18-year tenure. “I don’t really think about that much,” he said. “One thing I’ve learned as a player and a coach is to instill in yourself and your team an attitude that when one thing is over you move on to the next. It’s nice to know I’ve had those accomplishments in my career here, but I try to focus on each year.” After his team finished the 2009 season ranked No. 23 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association polls with a 14-11 overall record and reached as high as No. 16, Minnis was selected as the head coach of the Southern Girls 18s National Team at the USTA National Teams Championships. The Baton Rouge native led the team to the USTA National Championship as it claimed the title for the first time since 1997. Minnis also led his Lady Tiger team to the NCAA Tournament for the 14th time in his 18-year tenure in 2009 as he was named the Southwestern Regional Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his career. Minnis also received the award in 1995, 1999, 2004 and 2007. The Lady Tigers advanced to the second round of the tournament for the second consecutive season. Under Minnis’ direction, the team reached a few milestones in 2009 as the Lady Tigers defeated the Florida Gators for the first time in program history. Outside of the SEC, the Lady

Tigers knocked off Texas A&M, 4-3, in College Station, Texas, for the first time since 1997. In the fall, Megan Falcon and Mykala Hedberg advanced to the finals of the ITA Southwest Regional Doubles Championships, and the duo claimed the first championship win during the Minnis era. After a season in 2005-06 in which LSU did not make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 11 years, Minnis guided a youthful, inexperienced Lady Tiger team to the NCAA Tournament in 2006-07 as the Southeastern Conference Western Division co-champions. The 2006-07 season marked the second time LSU finished atop the SEC West standings since the conference switched to Eastern and Western divisions in 2002. Moreover, Minnis led the team to the top of the SEC West standings even though three, four or sometimes five newcomers started during the season. The team also advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the eighth time in Minnis’ career as LSU’s head coach. Minnis was instrumental in bringing in three-time singles All-American Falcon, who finished her sophomore season in 2007 at 38-3 and raced all the way to the semifinals of the NCAA Individual Championships. Falcon’s semifinal finish was the furthest any LSU player has reached at the NCAA Individual Championships, surpassing two other Minnis recruits - Bruna Colosio in 2000 and 2001 and Suzana Rodrigues in 1994 - who both made it to the quarterfinals. Falcon was also named the SEC Player of the Year in 2007, the second player under Minnis to receive the honor after Colosio was selected as the league’s top player in 2001. With the conclusion of her senior campaign in 2009, Falcon listed as No. 8 on LSU’s all-time

winningest players list and became the only Lady Tiger in program annals to earn three singles AllAmerica honors. Besides great play on the tennis court, Minnis has also stressed hard work in the classroom, and the results have shown as the team was named an ITA All-Academic Team with a cumulative grade point average of 3.385 in the 2007-08 year. Not only was the team as a whole honored for its performance off the courts, but a school-record seven Lady Tigers were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for maintaining a grade point average of at least a 3.50. In 2009, five Lady Tigers earned ITA Scholar-Athlete accolades, and fifth-year senior Staten Spencer became the first women’s tennis player at LSU to earn an NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship. Minnis returned to his hometown in 1992 to take over the LSU women’s tennis team. By earning his 80th career victory at LSU in 1997, he passed Phillip Campbell (1984-88) as the winningest women’s tennis coach in Tigers’ history. Minnis came to LSU knowing what it takes to excel in the sport. He was a tennis star at Southwestern Louisiana from 1984-88. He served as team captain his freshman and senior seasons and is USL’s all-time winningest singles player with an impressive 94-40 career mark. He followed his playing career with a job as an assistant tennis coach at USL as well as working as the club professional at several tennis clubs in the Lafayette area. But, Minnis said his LSU experience has taught him the most about the game. “I’ve learned a lot over my career, especially about how very, very important it is to communicate with your players,” he said. “I know the roller coasters that come with coaching, and I’ve learned to take them in

stride. I have been so fortunate to be in this tremendous environment at LSU because you get to learn from every single coach here. There are some great coaches, and that’s the beauty of having an athletic department as good as this one.” With those years of experience and lessons, Minnis and his Lady Tigers have come away with a pile of awards and achievements. In 2004, Minnis guided the team to a final ITA ranking of No. 20 in a season that included an NCAA Tournament berth, an SEC Western Division Championship and an appearance in the SEC Tournament semifinals. The Lady Tigers lost to eventual SEC Champion Florida. During the 2001 campaign, Minnis and the Lady Tigers put together a solid campaign and finished the season with a 14-10 overall record. The squad advanced to the NCAA Tournament and finished the year with a No. 27 national ranking. Bruna Colosio, who graduated after a recordbreaking senior season in 2002, was one of the top five players in the nation and the 2001 SEC Player of the Year. She excelled under Minnis’ constant tutelage and received All-America status in both 2000 and 2001. During an unexpected run at the NCAA Championships in 2000, Minnis led LSU to its second Sweet 16 appearance in school history. The Lady Tigers upset sixth-ranked Pepperdine, 5-4, in the second round of the tournament. The upset is considered the most impressive victory in team history. LSU fell in the Sweet 16 to USC. In 1999, Minnis was named the Southwest Regional Coach of the Year after reaching the NCAA Tournament for the fifth straight season. The season was supposed to be a rebuilding one, but Minnis led his squad to upset victories over both 10th-ranked Tennessee and 15th-ranked Arkansas on its way to a final ranking of No. 28 in the nation. In 1997, Minnis was named the SEC Coach of the Year when he led LSU to the regional finals.

The Lady Tigers advanced to the championship match of the Southwest regional by beating Texas A&M, 5-0. Minnis was recognized as the Louisiana Coach of the Year for the third time in four years. Senior Suzana Rodrigues finished her career ranked fifth in all-time singles wins at 108-42 overall. She and teammate Laura Olave won the 1996 National Clay Court Doubles title. The tandem earned All-America honors after placing 10th in the final doubles rankings. LSU posted its highest national ranking ever under Minnis in April of 1995 when the Lady Tigers leapt from No. 30 to No. 15 after upsetting 11th-ranked Tennessee, 5-3, in the opening round of the NCAA Championships. The Lady Tigers fell to eventual NCAA runner-up Florida, 5-0, in round two. Minnis was named the Southwest Region and Louisiana Coach of the Year after guiding the Lady Tigers to their first-ever win at NCAA’s and their first postseason appearance since 1991.

His father, Howard, was the head tennis coach at Southern University for several years and was a professor there before he passed away. His sister, Patricia, was a four-year letterwinner at LSU from 1988-91. His brother, Patrick, was USL’s No. 1 singles player after Minnis’ departure. Minnis played high school tennis at Redemptorist in Baton Rouge. He graduated from USL in 1988 with a degree in finance and earned an MBA in 1996.

Jackson 2007 Southwest Regional Assistant Coach of the Year

Lisa Jackson is entering her sixth year as an assistant coach for the Lady Tigers, and she has been instrumental in the success of the LSU women’s tennis program, helping the team advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament in back-to-back seasons in 2007-08 and 2008-09. Jackson has been a vital part in the recruitment process for the Lady Tigers as she travels all over the country and world to secure top-notch players who will add to the program’s future success. She assisted in signing a stellar recruiting class for the 2010-11 season, which included a pair of fivestar recruits in Yvette Vlaar and Ariel Morton and transfer Olivia Howlett, a 2010 Junior College singles national champion. Before the 2006-07 season, Jackson, along with head coach Tony Minnis, reeled in the nation’s 17th-ranked recruiting class according

to TennisRecruiting.net Not only has Jackson been an outstanding recruiter for LSU, but she has also been a hands-on coach, picking up the racket and practicing with the team to help them improve. It is not odd to see Jackson at practice hitting back and forth with a player to provide her with a practice partner for the day. Her hands-on approach helped the Lady Tigers rebound from a 12-12 season in 2005-06 to go 16-10 the following year and guide the team back to the NCAA Tournament. Because of her efforts and the team’s improvement, Jackson was awarded by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association as the 2007 Southwest Regional Assistant Coach of the Year. Jackson has also been steady at helping Minnis manage the day-to-day operations of running the

program, something Jackson did when she was at UL-Lafayette. She served as the Ragin Cajuns’ associate head coach for two years before arriving in Tiger Town. “She was like a head coach at ULL, so she has brought that added experience of being a head coach,” Minnis commented on his assistant. “She has a lot of enthusiasm, and the work ethic she brings is a real positive for our program.” In her first year in Lafayette, Jackson led the ULL tennis team to a 7-14 record, a vast improvement from the team’s 1-13 finish a year before. In 2005, she went even beyond that, leading the team to a 10-9 finish, its first winning season since 2001. “I think one of the things that was so impressive and one of the major reasons I looked to hire her was what she was able to do at Lafayette,” Minnis explained. “We competed against ULL the past couple years and saw the major improvement in the team and how much better they got in that short time span. I was very impressed with what she did for that program.” Coming all the way from her homeland of Johannesburg, South Africa, Jackson started her own college career at William Carey College in Gulfport, Miss. While there she was selected as an NAIA second-team All-American and was also the MVP of her team. After one season she decided to transfer to the University of Texas at Arlington for the remainder of her collegiate career. Her impressive career there included earning a top-30 national ranking in doubles, becoming a two-time recipient of the Southland Conference Player of the Year Award in 1999 and 2000 and helping her team win the Southland Conference Championship all three years. At UT-Arlington, Jackson also earned both her bachelor’s (2001) and master’s (2003) degrees in psychology. She stayed on staff at UT-Arlington as a graduate assistant with the tennis program until earning her master’s degree.

2009-2010 Season Review

Seniors Sloane Mathis, Hannah Robinson and Nicole Kantor with Coach Minnis and Jackson

Youth Movement Growing Pains

Head coach Tony Minnis knew his young Lady Tiger squad would take some early-season lumps last season. After Megan Falcon -- one of the greatest players in program history -- and standouts Mykala Hedberg and Staten Spencer wrapped up their collegiate careers in 2008-09, the program would be ushering in a youth movement in 2009-10 with three freshmen and a sophomore playing prominent roles. Seniors Nicole Kantor, Hannah Robinson and Sloane Mathis complemented the young lineup with their leadership and experience, and Kantor led the Lady Tiger upperclassmen in the fall. The St. Louis native won the main singles draw of the Hoosier Classic, advanced to the quarterfinals of the ITA Southern Regional Championships and represented the squad at the ITA All-American Championships. However, the coaches also saw promise out of the team’s youth. Gifted sophomore Whitney Wolf began to showcase her immense potential as she claimed her first tournament title at the Harvard Invitational and joined Kantor in the quarterfinals of the ITA Southern Regional. The Pride, La., native also led the squad with a 10-3 singles mark during

the fall. Freshman Ebie Wilson earned a tournament title of her own, capturing the Flight ‘B’ championship at the Hoosier Classic. The Lady Tigers struggled in the first half of the spring season as the young underclassmen adjusted to their new roles in the lineup against top-flight competition. Wolf shouldered the responsibilities of facing the opponent’s top player out of the No. 1 singles slot for the first time in her career, while pairing with talented freshmen Keri Frankenberger and Kaitlin Burns in the team’s No. 1 doubles slot. Burns and Frankenberger took on the challenge of holding down the second, third and fourth slots of the singles lineup throughout the spring, and fellow freshman Wilson spent most of the spring season playing in the No. 5 position. After their slow start in the first 10 matches of the season, the Lady Tigers picked it up in mid-March and enjoyed a solid second half with eight of their 10 victories coming after March 12. In early April, the squad put together a string of three consecutive victories against SEC competition, prevailing over Auburn, Alabama and Kentucky. The Lady Tigers earned the No. 8 seed in the SEC Tournament and emerged victorious over No. 9

Alabama in their first-round match before falling to top seed and eventual NCAA runner-up Florida.

Individual Highlights The development of sophomore Whitney Wolf and the freshmen tandem of Keri Frankenberger and Kaitlin Burns highlighted the team’s athletic success in 2009-10. Wolf took a big step forward from her freshman season as she not only welcomed the challenge of facing off against opponents’ top players, but delivered a team-best four victories versus nationally-ranked players. Wolf also earned a national singles ranking during the season and was a part of two separate doubles squads to be ranked during the season. Teaming with Frankenberger, Wolf helped lead the Lady Tigers with a 15-9 record, while she recorded a 4-6 mark with Burns. Frankenberger, who held a team-high winning percentage of .613 with a 19-12 singles mark, was named to the All-SEC Second Team, All-SEC Freshman Team and All-Louisiana First Team and was selected as the 2010 Louisiana Freshman of the Year. In addition, the Gainesville, Fla., native

Hannah Robinson was recognized as the SEC Freshman of the Week following her efforts in wins over Tulane and Grambling State. Burns, a 2010 All-Louisiana Second Team member, posted a team-best 20 singles wins on the season, and captured her first career victory over a nationallyranked opponent. Senior Nicole Kantor finished her final collegiate season with 19 singles victories and wins over two nationally-ranked players.

Classroom Excellence Minnis preaches the importance of maintaining a healthy balance between athletics and school work, and it comes as no surprise that the 2009-10 season was another banner year for the Lady Tigers beyond the courts. For the fifth consecutive season, LSU women’s tennis placed at least five student-athletes on the SEC Academic Honor Roll with seven athletes -- Kylie Adamek, Kaitlin Burns, Nicole Kantor, Sloane Mathis, Hannah Robinson, Ebie Wilson and Whitney Wolf -- earning recognition. In addition, Kantor, Mathis and Robinson were named ITA Scholar-Athletes for the fourth straight year, while Wilson represented the Lady Tiger freshmen on the distinguished list.

HISTORY


1976 Lady Tigers: Inaugural Season

Illustrious TENNIS HISTORY In the fall of 1973 the Lady Tigers’ tennis team was formed as a club sport with Pat Newman as head coach and Jay McCreary as the Coordinator of Club Sports. The fledgling program began with eight players who bought their own racquets and balls. It has since developed into a national collegiate tennis power over the decades. From the early days of limited schedules and funding, the LSU program has come a long way, becoming a dominant tennis power in the state of Louisiana and making its presence known regionally and nationally. In 1975, the Lady Tigers signed their first collegiate player to an athletic scholarship for the following season, acquiring Ann Ellis from Houston. Next was Karen McCarter, a walk-on from a big tennis family in Shreveport, La. The following year, Kay McDaniel, another Shreveport product, and Elizabeth Palfrey of Baton Rouge joined the Lady Tiger family, and LSU was on its way to becoming a national power, finishing in the top 20 in the nation for the first time. The Lady Tigers experienced an outstanding recruiting season in 1976-77, signing the No. 1-ranked player in the South in Ebie Taylor of Mobile, Ala. From Texas came two outstanding players in Lisa Boettcher of Pasadena and Carol Reger of Fort Worth. With those players, LSU won the state championship, placed in the top 10 at nationals and produced the first Lady Tiger All-Americans in tennis, Kay McDaniel and Ebie Taylor. The program has continued to flourish, finishing in the top 30 of the final national rankings 11 times since 1991.

WOMEN’S TENNIS

All-Americans In its 33-year history, the LSU women’s tennis program has produced an All-American 12 times. Only three years after the official inaugural season, two Lady Tigers were named All-Americans in 1978 as Ebie Taylor and Kay McDaniel, Nos. 2 and 12 on the all-time wins list at LSU, respectively, earned the honor. Sixteen years later, the next selection came in the form of Suzana Rodrigues, who earned her status as a singles All-American as a freshman in 1994. Fifth on the list of all-time wins, Rodrigues was named an All-American again as a senior in 1997, that year receiving recognition for her outstanding doubles play. Her partner Laura Olave shared the All-America distinction that year. Another pair was recognized as All-Americans in 2000 when Bruna Colosio and Ana Paula Mores won the award. Fittingly, they each ended their careers with the same number of match wins, 97, which places them in a tie for eighth on the all-time wins list. Colosio was named a singles All-American again in 2001, finishing her career as one of the top players to wear the Purple and Gold.

LSU’s latest All-American, Megan Falcon had arguably the most successful season in Lady Tiger history as a sophomore in 2006-07. The Alameda, Calif., native enjoyed a stellar debut, reeling off win after win at the ITA All-American Championships in the fall of 2006. By the time the tournament ended for Falcon, she had defeated nine ranked opponents, including five in the top 50. After her fast start, Falcon began the spring of 2007 ranked No. 2 in the nation. Playing all of her dual season matches at the No. 1 spot in singles, Falcon went 24-0 and ran her record to an amazing 34-2 heading into the NCAA Individual Championships. Accomplishing something no other Lady Tiger had ever done before, Falcon raced to the semifinals of the championships, only dropping one set along the way. En route to the final four, Falcon knocked off four ranked opponents, pushing her record

against ranked adversaries to 26-2 on the year. However, Falcon’s pursuit of the individual national championship was denied when USC’s Lindsey Nelson defeated her, 7-6(2), 6-2. Overall, Falcon finished 38-3 and tied for seventh in school history with 38 wins in a single season in 2006-07. After an amazing individual season, Falcon deservingly received several accolades. She was named an ITA All-American in singles - finishing ranked No. 2 in the nation - the 2007 Southeastern Conference Player of the Year, First Team AllSEC, Southwest Regional Player to Watch, ITA National Co-Player to Watch, Honda Award Finalist, LSWA Louisiana Player of the Year and the LSWA Newcomer of the Year. One season later in 2007-08, Falcon followed up her brilliant sophomore campaign by earning a second singles All-America honor. To open the fall season

For the second straight season Falcon led LSU in wins with a 27-7 record, including 12 victories over ranked opponents, and she finished the year ranked No. 15. Falcon again captured the ITA All-American Championships consolation title in the fall. Just like in 2007, Falcon earned First-Team All-SEC honors and was named LSWA Louisiana Player of the Year as well as earning ITA Scholar-Athlete recognition for the first time in her career. For her senior campaign, Falcon completed her incredible run at LSU, listing eighth on the program’s all-times wins list with a 99-18 career record. The three-time Louisiana Player of the Year earned her third-consecutive singles All-America honors, while also being unanimously named First-Team All SEC for the third straight season.

1978 SINGLES ALL-AMERICAN Kay McDaniel, who played for LSU from 1975-79, racked up 92 wins in a Lady Tigers’ uniform, a number that places her 12th on the list of all-time winningest players in LSU women’s tennis history. She is also third on the list of match wins in a single season with 43 in 1977-78. McDaniel became the first LSU women’s tennis All-America selection, along with Ebie Taylor, in 1978, a year that saw the Lady Tigers go 19-5 and earn the title of Louisiana AIAW Champion. She next toured the professional courts from 1980-86, competing against such players as Billie Jean King, Chris Evert, Martina Navratilova and Steffi Graf. She once ranked as high as No. 30 in singles (1983) and No. 20 in doubles (1986). The United States Tennis Association Tennessee Hall of Fame named McDaniel to its list of 2005 inductees, and she was honored at a banquet on Feb. 5, 2005, at the Nashville Marriott in Nashville, Tenn.

HISTORY


WTT Smash Hits Charity Event

On Dec. 8, 2009, the Baton Rouge Area Foundation and Pennington Foundation presented the 17th annual WTT Smash Hits, a charity tennis event to raise funds for AIDS organizations, at LSU’s Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Music icon Elton John and tennis legend Billie Jean King squared off as each headed a pair of teams with professional stars such as Andy Roddick, Serena Williams and Anna Kournikova. Team Elton John prevailed, 16-13, for his ninth event victory, and the endeavor raised more than $640,000 to benefit the Elton John AIDS Foundation and local AIDS charities.
