Student-athletes at UNCG have enjoyed a tremendous amount of success over the years. Although the athletic department celebrated its 45th season in 2010-11, athletics at UNCG date back to the 1940s in the days before the university became co-ed. Golfer Nancy Porter, who went on to a successful pro career, is regarded as one of UNCG’s first student-athletes, competing in tournaments on the national level in the late 1940s. In 1963, as the university prepared to go co-ed, UNCG began to formally organize athletic teams. Women’s basketball, under head coach Ellen Griffin, women’s tennis, women’s golf and field hockey were started. LPGA Hall of Famer Carol Mann was on one of the early UNCG women’s golf teams. In 1967, UNCG began men’s athletics and the intercollegiate athletics program received formal recognition from the university. In the fall of 1967, the Spartan was adopted as the program’s mascot. In 1968, UNCG’s men’s teams joined the Dixie Athletic Conference, known today as the USA South Conference, on the NCAA Division III level. Women’s teams competed as part of the AIAW early on, with UNCG being one of the lead organizers of the organization. Two of the first men’s sports were basketball and bowling. In 1971, with the emergence of the five-player rule in women’s basketball, UNCG finished fourth in the National Collegiate Tournament. Two years later, the women’s golf team won the AIAW national title – UNCG’s first-ever team national crown. Porter coached the squad and future professional golfer Donna Horton White was on the squad. Since then, UNCG has enjoyed a number of successes: • Five national titles in men’s soccer during the 1980s and a runner-up finish in women’s tennis. • An unprecedented five-year move from Division III to Division II to Division I -- went from Division III in 1987, to Division II in 1988-90 and have been Division I since 1991. • A trip to the “Big Dance” – the NCAA men’s basketball tournament – in just its fifth year of Division I status. • Men’s soccer coach Michael Parker and women’s basketball coach Lynne Agee were the first to lead teams to the NCAA tournament

in all three divisions. • A baseball squad built from scratch by Mike Gaski that made it to the NCAA tournament in just its fifth season of play. • A men’s soccer program that conquered all comers for two months to become the No. 1 team in the nation in 2004, the beginning of UNCG’s three straight NCAA tournament Round of 16 appearances and four in five years. • Kyle Hines, who became just the sixth player in college basketball history to record 2,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 300 blocked shots in a career. • Individuals like wrestler Dock Kelly, who overcame birth defects that left him without legs, qualifying for the NCAA Championship. • Students like Siggi Eyjolffson, who earned Academic All-American honors three times. • Men’s basketball games moved off campus to the Greensboro Coliseum, one of the premier facilities in the country. From major league pitcher Brian Moehler to MLS champion Alejandro Moreno to LPGA star Becky Morgan, Spartan alumni have gone on to successful careers in sports. That success isn’t just limited to the playing field, either. The late Doug Hamilton was one of the pioneers within MLS and played on the UNCG national championship teams of the 1980s. Eyjolffson returned to his native Iceland and is one of the top people in his native country’s soccer federation, currently serving as their women’s national team head coach. Spartan athletics has had its success stories over the years … and the best is yet to come.

Constructed in the summer and fall of 2000, the UNCG Tennis Courts serve as the home facility for the Spartan men’s and women’s tennis teams. The current facility was built on the site of UNCG’s previous facility at a cost of $1.4 million. Situated between the UNCG Soccer Stadium and Fleming Gymnasium, the facility includes 12 lighted courts, allowing for both the Spartan men’s and women’s teams to play or practice simultaneously during the day and at night. The facility includes a meeting area on the south end of the courts, 24 player benches and elevated seating for approximately 350 fans. The facility underwent renovations in the summer of 2010. The courts have been completely resurfaced to an attractive blue color of the same style used at the U.S. Open since 2005 and at the Australian Open since 2008. The facility will be outfitted with various Spartan marks and is having its drainage upgraded and serviced in completing the renovation.


2013-14 UNCG W o m e n ’ s T e nn i s

2013-14 UNCG W o m e n ’ s T e nn i s As assistant coach in 1998-99, Trivette helped guide the women’s team to the SoCon regular-season title and a national ranking. Also, the men’s team finished runnerup in the conference.

HEAD COACH JEFF TRIVETTE

With Trivette on staff, the men’s team was the Big South Conference runner-up in 1992, 1993 and 1994 before winning its first conference championship in 1995. The women’s team was the Big South regular-season champion in 1996 and 1997 and Big South tournament champion in 1997 after a runner-up finish the year prior.

15TH SEASON AS HEAD COACH • UNCG, 1992 Jeff Trivette begins his 15th season as the women’s tennis coach at UNCG in 2013-14. Trivette was permanently named head tennis coach on July 1, 2000, after serving one year as interim head coach. He had been an assistant coach at UNCG for 10 years prior to that.

In addition to working with the Spartan teams for more than two decades, Trivette has assisted with the university’s summer tennis camp and has been tournament coordinator for the Intercollegiate Tennis Association/Rolex Summer Circuit event that is played annually at UNCG.

Trivette coached both the men’s and women’s programs at UNCG for five seasons before relinquishing the men’s title before the 200405 season to current coach Thomas Mozur. In Trivette’s tenure, UNCG has reached the semifinals of the Southern Conference Championship six times. He has had six first-team All-SoCon singles selections, including two-time honoree and 2008 SoCon Player of the Year Alejandra Guerra, and nine first-team doubles teams picked. Eight have earned second-team all-league singles laurels under Trivette, while three doubles teams have earned second-team honors. UNCG has had at least one first-team singles and doubles selection in six of the last sevens seasons.

Trivette, an assistant men’s tennis coach at Greensboro College in 1989, is a 28-year veteran of coaching. Prior to entering coaching, Trivette played at Charlotte and also competed professionally.

Trivette has also put three student-athletes on the SoCon All-Freshman Team since its inception in 2009, the third-most in the league in that span. Last season, UNCG finished with a 14-7 record earning a trip to the Southern Conference semifinals falling to the College of Charleston. The Spartans earned a No. 65 national ranking during the season after a 9-4 start. The Blue and Gold was 6-1 at home and 8-2 in the conference to earn the No. 4 seed. Senior Niltooli Wilkins earned first team All-SoCon and finished with a 24-10 overall record. In 2012, Trivette earned his first coach of the year award on the women’s side after leading UNCG to its first regular season title since 1999 and first-ever outright SoCon title. The Spartans finished with a 18-6 mark, including a perfect 10-0 in SoCon play before falling just short against College of Charleston, 4-1, in the SoCon tournament final. Trivette coached junior Niltooli Wilkins to her first SoCon Player of the Year award after breaking the school record for most wins with a 30-6 record. UNCG also entered the ITA rankings at No. 74 late in the season.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise and sport science from UNCG in 1992 and a master’s degree in sport psychology from UNCG in 1994.

GRADUATE ASSISTANT COACH

ALEJANDRA GUERRA SECOND SEASON AS GRADUATE ASSISTANT COACH • UNCG, 2009

In 2011, Trivette guided the Spartans to 15-7 overall mark and a second-place Southern Conference finish at 9-1 in the league. Four players earned first-team All-SoCon honors, with Niltooli Wilkins taking the distinction in singles and Wilkins, Alex Whitehead, Lucy Dougherty and Stephanie Macfarlane doing so in doubles play. UNCG also made a brief appearance in the national rankings, topping out at No. 70. The Spartans reached the semifinals of the SoCon Championship for just the fifth time in school history.

Former Spartan, Alejandra Guerra, has been named as graduate assistant coach for the women’s tennis program, as announced by head coach Jeff Trivette.

Trivette had UNCG ranked 66th in 2009-10, but the Spartans had to deal with an injury at the top of the lineup and finished the season with a 10-11 ledger that included a 4-6 league mark. Despite the sub.500 record, UNCG had three student-athletes earn All-SoCon honors, while Whitehead and Annette Rios were SoCon All-Freshman selections, as well.

In 2012-13, Alejandra helped the Spartans to a 14-7 overall record, including a 8-2 mark in conference matches. The Spartans were ranked as high as No. 65 last season. Senior Niltooli Wilkins was named first team All-SoCon after earning 24 victories during the 2012-13 campaign.

TRIVETTE (LAST SIX YEARS)

2007-08 12-10 SoCon quarterfinals 2008-09 15-6 SoCon semifinals 2009-10 10-11 SoCon quarterfinals 2010-11 15-7 SoCon semifinals 2011-12 18-6 SoCon regular season title; SoCon finals 2012-13 14-7 SoCon semifinals Total 84-47

Guerra went 18-2 in the 2008 spring season and compiled a 17-match winning streak en route to being named the league’s player of the year. Guerra was named all-conference in singles, while Guerra and Arielle VonStrolley combined to earn a doubles all-league slot, as well.

As the men’s coach for five seasons, he compiled a 55-57 mark overall. In his second season with the men’s team, Trivette was named the Southern Conference Coach of the Year in 2001-02. He guided his squad to a 9-1 mark in conference play (15-5 overall) and a tie with Furman for the league title. In addition, the women’s team finished third in the SoCon that same season with a 7-2 mark (10-9 overall). Both teams advanced to the conference tournament semifinals. As interim head coach in 1999-2000, Trivette led the men’s team to a national ranking, a 16-7 overall mark and a third-place finish in the Southern Conference (8-2).

Guerra contributed to the Spartans as a player from 2007 to 2009. She was named Southern Conference Player of the Year in 2008. Guerra was a two-time First Team All SoCon selection in singles and doubles in 2008-2009. She placed as high as No. 38 in singles and No. 12 in doubles in the ITA national rankings. In 2008, Guerra went 18-2 in singles and ended the season with a perfect record of 9-0 in SoCon matches. She followed that season with 29-8 record in singles and a 9-1 ledger in the SoCon in 2009. The Tampico, Mexico native ended her career with 47 victories in singles and a total of 37 double wins. She held the record of most wins in a season with 29 until last year when Niltooli Wilkins broke the record with 30 wins. Guerra is pursuing her Master’s degree in Liberal Arts and is expected to graduate in 2015.
