In recognition of his invaluable contributions to the tennis program, a court at the Emory Tennis facility was dedicated to former coach Don Schroer on Sunday afternoon.
With a number of his former players in attendance, as well as his family and members of the Emory community, Don's legacy and vision in laying the foundation for the current success of both the men's and women's teams were hailed by Athletics Director Tim Downes and former Eagle Roy Martino.
During his 31-year tenure as tennis coach, Schroer accumulated 503 victories that made him the fifth-winningest coach ever in NCAA Division III history. His teams were ranked among the top 20 nationally for 19 consecutive years, and he qualified an individual for the Division III national championship every year from 1978 through 1999. He guided the Eagles to a runner-up berth in the 1996 NCAAs and fourth-place performances at the 1995 and 1998 national championships. During the 12 years that he coached in the University Athletic Association (1988-1999), he directed the program to 11 conference titles and was a nine-time recipient of the UAA Coaching Staff of the Year.
