FWCD Tennis Program Director and Coach Named USPTA Texas College Coach of the Year

Texas Wesleyan University Head Women's Tennis Coach Angel Martinez, who also serves as FWCD’s Tennis Program Director and Coach, was named the U.S. Professional Tennis Association Texas College Coach of the Year for the 2015-16 season. The award was presented during the USPTA Texas Annual Conference in Horseshoe Bay in February.
 
Martinez led Texas Wesleyan back to the court last season after a 13-year hiatus, and the team had immediate success. The Lady Rams were the top team in the Sooner Athletic Conference. They went 11-4 in the season and reached the final of the NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Unaffiliated Group Regional Tournament before falling just one win shy of the NAIA National Tournament.
 
Martinez came to Texas Wesleyan after 31 seasons of coaching in the high school ranks, which included 18 District Championships. His impressive resume includes three USPTA Texas High School Coach of the Year awards as well as a USTA Starfish National Coach of the Year award in 2009.
