Following up on Frank’s request, Alison Swain, the incredibly successful former coach of the Williams women’s tennis team, is off to great things at USC:
The USC women’s tennis team has secured yet another trip to the NCAA tournament by locking down the No. 13 seed. The Women of Troy (18-7) will be participating in their 36th appearance in the NCAA tournament and will host the First and Second Rounds at Marks Stadium on May 4-5. If the Trojans should advance, they will participate in a Super Regional for the Round of 16 next weekend (May 10-11). The Round of 8 and beyond, in addition to the NCAA Individual Championships, will be held in Orlando, Fla. from May 17-19. Under the tutelage of head coach Alison Swain, USC will face Illinois State (20-6) on Saturday (May 4) at 12 p.m. Should the Trojans defeat the Redbirds, USC will take on the winner of the First Round match up between UNLV and Texas Tech on Sunday (May 5) at 1 p.m.
In her second season as the USC women’s tennis head coach, Alison Swain has brought the Trojans back into national recognition and prepared them for a championship run to bring home the team’s third NCAA team title.
I’m far from an expert on USC tennis, but this sounds like a successful start for Coach Swain!
