Off court success is just as important as on court success for Jackrabbit Tennis. Our staff and players realize the importance of academics and have alumni who have graduated in multiple fields such as pharmacy, engineering, economics, psychology, and pre-medicine. Last season, 6 out 8 players made the commissioners list of academic excellence and achieved the Summit League team academic achievement award. Academics is not a recent success for Jackrabbit tennis, as the men’s program consistently holds a team GPA above 3.4. Our staff ensures you will not only leave SDSU a better tennis player, but a person who is ready to be successful in all aspects of life.
The tennis coaching staff at SDSU all believe in getting the full potential out of every player that wears the Jackrabbit Tennis uniform. There is not a day that goes by where we do not get better on and off the court. Being a relatively new coaching staff, we believe we have out the pieces together to be a very successful program in the years to come. We are not afraid of hard work and going the extra mile to ensure our players maximize their potential. This “think win” mentality is going to get us to the next level and help our players achieve their goals after graduation.
The Jackrabbit Tennis program is on the rise. With a new coaching staff last year, we have made it clear we want to be an elite team in the Summit League and in the NCAA. We have set high goals for our tennis program, and work hard every day to achieve these goals. We are establishing a fresh, successful tradition that is going to stay with the tennis program for many years to come. Our staff believes in this new tradition, our players believe in this new tradition, and our athletic department believes in this new tradition. There is not a better time to become a member of the Jackrabbit Tennis family!
