DENVER, CO – CaptainU, the youth and college sports network, today announced the spring 2013 CaptainU College Coaches of the Year. Top coaches in their respective sports and divisions were chosen for their teams' inspiring performances both on and off the field.
Dan Greenberg '08, head coach of Williams College men's tennis (23-3) was named the NCAA Division III National Men's Tennis Coach of the Year.
Greenberg led his Eph squad to its first NESCAC title since 2003 and first NCAA title since 2002. The title won by Greenberg's Ephs was the first NCAA men's title won by Williams since 2003 when the Ephs captured the men's basketball title.
Eight members of the Ephs' 2012-13 team earned Academic All-NESCAC honors and senior Bryan Chow was named a Capital One First Team Academic All-American.
Five Ephs earned All-NESCAC playing honors with senior Trey Mayer being named the NESCAC Player of the Year. Earning honors along with Meyer were seniors Bryan Chow and Felix Sun, junior Matt Micheli and freshman Alex Schidlovsky. Greenberg captured Co-NESCAC Coach of the Year recognition.
Trey Meyer and Matt Micheli earned All-America honors by winning the ITA's 2012 National Small College NCAA DIII doubles title, marking the second year in a row a Greenberg tandem had won the crown. Meyer teamed with Chow to win the 2011 doubles championship.
On March 29th in Claremont, California, Williams lost 5-4 to Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS), but a little less than two months later on May 22 the Ephs defeated CMS indoors in Kalamazoo, MI, 5-2 to capture the NCAA title.
