Head tennis coach Scott Dicheck was named the Coach of the Year for the United States Tennis Association (USTA) New Jersey for 2007. Dicheck, in his eighth season as the coach at TCNJ, has directed the men’s and women’s programs to considerable success over the years.
He guided the Lions’ women’s tennis team to an NCAA Division III Tournament bid in May of last year, capping a 15-2 season. During the fall of 2007, the women’s team reeled off the program’s 25th consecutive NJAC Championship after winning its 121st consecutive NJAC dual-match win. Since the fall of 1982, the women’s tennis team is a perfect 121-0 in NJAC dual-meet competition.
Also last spring, Dicheck guided the men’s team to an 11-3 mark. The men also had representation at the 2007 NCAA Division III Team Championships, as well as the 2007 NCAA Division III Doubles Championships.
