Starkey came to Columbia in 1998 and inherited one of the weakest teams in the nation. At the time, the Tigers had not won a Big 8 or Big 12 team match since 1981. Similar to what occurred at Maryland, Starkey’s Tigers have enjoyed a big turnaround and his teams have been the strongest in program history. He credits this to his teams being true “teamsâ€?. He is pursuing 200 team wins and is the winningest tennis coach in Mizzou program history. The Tigers have become a dangerous squad posing a threat to any team in the Big 12, as well as any in the country. His ladies have defeated every Big 12 team with the exception of Baylor. In 2003, the Tigers were unique in pulling off the NCAA trifecta - they sent an individual to the NCAA’s in singles, a doubles team to the NCAA’s, and the entire team competed for the NCAA Team Championships. This is a difficult feat, and has only been achieved by a handful of coaches. 7KHVH1&$$DSSHDUDQFHVZHUHĂ€UVWV in Missouri program history. The Tigers reached their highest national team ranking in program history that year at No. 32 (out of 314 teams nationally) following their win over the Texas Longhorns.

While he has coached a doubles tandem that reached a No. 3 national ranking and won the Big 12 twice, his ultimate coaching goal is to win a Big 12 team title. What occurs off the court is also very important to Starkey. His Tigers have DQQXDOO\ ÀHOGHG RQH RI WKH EULJKWHVW athletic teams in the conference and are one of the brightest of all sports teams at Mizzou. The Tigers have been an Academic AllAmerican Team for numerous years, and his players are regulars on Missouri Dean’s lists and on the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll. He keeps the Tigers active in numerous community service HIIRUWV EXW PRVWO\ VHUYLFHV EHQHÀWLQJ children. In 2009, Starkey was honored as the USTA Missouri Valley Coach of the Year. Through the USPTA, Coach Starkey is a USPTA P-1 instructor. He recently participated in a USTA High Performance program in Berkley, California this past year, and has been selected for the upcoming High Performance program in Florida. As Mizzou’s coach, Starkey is actively involved in numerous tennis efforts in Columbia, and throughout the state of Missouri. Starkey’s wife, Julie, is the Assistant Dean for Campus Life at Columbia College. They have two children; Emily (15) and Samuel (12).

This Is The University of Missouri


Great Teaching With the Green Tennis Center’s opening in 2002, Missouri Tennis now boasts one of the nation’s elite teaching facilities for tennis. Head Coach Blake Starkey has taken Mizzou Tennis from three consecutive winless seasons in the Big 12 to one of the nation’s more competitive programs. Steven Stuckenschneider (pictured) is the head instructor and manager of the Green Tennis Center. Stuckenschneider is one of the top teaching instructors in the state of Missouri. The Green Tennis Center is named after the father of the late Jerry Green, who donated $500,000 for the construction of this spectacular facility. Green died in 2007, but his impact on Tiger Athletics will live on due to his generosity and passion for collegiate sports.
