Head Coach Lola Oredugba
(Reflecting on the season)
"When reflecting on the 2019 – 2020 season for our Men’s and Women’s Tennis Teams I’d say there were a lot of firsts… It’s my first year as the Head Tennis Coach for a D1 Collegiate Institution and with that comes many hats. In this role I learned quite a bit more about NCAA regulations, ITA Rules, OVC, Compliance, Academics, etc. – but my previous experience aided with efficiently navigating through these various tasks. Another first, I hired our Assistant Coach Quinton (better known as Coach Q) whom stepped into his role and did tremendous work with our Student-Athletes. I met and built a rapport with Coach Staci (Boost Performance) and she's been wonderful with ensuring our Players' bodies are prepared to withstand the season. The Student-Athletes put in work each day and were able to make tremendous strides in practice and against other Schools during competition. Although this “first” season was unfortunately cut short, I’m happy that the positive outweighed any challenges. I’m truly proud of the resilience of my Players and excited about the future of the Tennessee State University Tennis Program."
