More Pictures from the past

I found some more pictures that I hadn’t put up on flickr. These photos were from my first trip to the NCAA’s as a Whitman Coach. At the time this was probably one of the best freshman classes in the nation — 5 freshman all playing in the top 5. I believe that year we reached a high ranking of #12.

2003 Halloween Pictures

Been going through photos on my computer and ran across these gems. I think these photos were from a Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) varsity athletic event on Ankey field. Question for the day — should I tag and put on facebook?

USTA Campus Showdown = Alumni Showdown

Recently the USTA/ITA started a new program called the Campus Showdown. These events are one-day, open tennis events held on college campuses. I figured hosting a campus showdown would be a great way for some of the guys to play extra matches. I didn’t figure on the alumni getting wind of the event and coming out to play! Saturday’s Whitman Campus Showdown will feature 8 Whitman alumni, 6 current team members and 2 PNW junior players. So really this is a Whitman tennis alumni showdown! (more…)

Christoph 1st team Academic All-American!

As a capstone to a stellar academic and athletic career, Whitman College tennis player Christoph Fuchs has earned Academic All-America First-Team honors.

Christoph Fuchs

Fuchs, a four-year mainstay in the Whitman tennis lineup, graduated magna cum laude in late May with honors in his biology major.
The Academic All-America first, second and third teams, sponsored byESPN The Magazine, are selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Fuchs, who was part of three Northwest Conference (NWC) title teams at Whitman, is one of 17 student athletes voted to the men’s At-Large Team in the College Division.
The At-Large Team represents a number of sports, including tennis, swimming and golf, while the College Division includes all schools affiliated with NCAA Divisions II and III and the NAIA.
Whitman students have earned Academic All-America honors 10 times since the school began submitting nominations in 2003. Fuchs is the first Whitman athlete, however, to receive first-team recognition at the national level. (more…)
