The girls varsity tennis team has yet to experience a losing season, compiling a career record of 226 wins and only 49 losses. For years the performance of the team at the season’s end de Villafranca tournament included multiple first places and runner-up positions. We now compete in the Class A Division of the NEPSAC sanctioned team tournament. Our success comes from our depth. Most of the players compete in other sports during the year. Our top seniors have gone on to not only play at the collegiate level, but also to earn “Rookie of the Year” status in programs at Colby, Hamilton, Georgetown, and Johns Hopkins. Some have earned captaincies at colleges that include Harvard, Skidmore, St. Lawrence, Hamilton, Middlebury, Trinity, and Bowdoin. Honors gained at Trinity College included MVP, All-NESCAC, and Academic and Collegiate All-American Scholar.
It has been exciting and encouraging to see the quality of our players improve steadily over the years. In the past the All-American sports tennis camp and the Nick Bollettieri Tennis camp have periodically used our facility for summer clinics and programs. Deerfield boasts a total of 21 “no fault” medium speed hard courts, 18 of which surround our traditional pagoda on the “lower level.”
Girls tennis at Deerfield is coached by Christian Austin. For more information about the program, please contact Coach Austin.
