the lines are still good

Follow the happenings of an animated college tennis coach and his teams in their pursuit of an NCAA National Tennis Championship. It is always the impressive trophy that is displayed for all to admire that gets the attention, but it is the journey to claiming that trophy, the relationships built, the people served and the memories created, that live forever...and what I hope you will find interesting...

Deja vu...

My all-time favorite Concordia Tennis picture (top) with Rodrigo and Kirill represents the rise of the program to the national level.  These two major players in our history led the program to its first "Sweet 16".  Also significant is the advent of a culture of players playing for each other rather than only for themselves.  I have so many fond memories of the 2004-2005 season. 

Of course, the baton has been passed time and time again to where we now stand.  As most of you know by now, Dani and Benas (bottom) captured the ITA National Small College Championship (NCAA D2) in doubles a few weeks ago and were involved is some great matches along the way.

I hope that this sense of togetherness is contagious and we grow together as a team and to a level higher than just the sum of the parts.

I really like my team.
