Lin Loring - Head Women's Tennis Coach, Indiana University

In his 34 years at Indiana, Lin Loring has been the most successful women's collegiate tennis coach in Midwest history. The 1982 and 1992 National Coach of the Year has produced one national team title, two national singles titles, one national doubles title, 18 All-Americans, and 17 consecutive top 20 finishes. The Hoosiers were undefeated in the Big Ten from May 1978 to May 1985, winning 104 consecutive Big Ten matches. Loring's teams have won 16 Big Ten titles. In 1991 he appeared in Sports Illustrated when he became the first NCAA Division I women's coach in history to record 400 career wins. On Jan. 20, 2008, he became the first coach to record 700 career wins, and his career mark is 748-276 entering the 2010-11 season.

Since moving to Indiana, Azcui has helped the Hoosiers win five Big Ten titles. He has been acknowledged for his coaching, winning the Midwest Assistant Coach of the Year Award in 1997, 1999 and 2004, an award that has only been in existence for 12 years. Also in 2004 he was awarded the ITA National Assistant Coach of the Year.

A 10-year head coaching veteran at Georgia Tech (1994-99) and Miami, Ohio (1989-94), Carson was an assistant coach at Indiana from 1987-89 before launching her own successful head coaching career.

Sunday evening after dinner, all players will be evaluated by Coach Loring and placed into groups of similar ability. Groups will be rearranged if necessary as the week progresses. Biomechanically sound stroke production, correction of existing strokes, and proper footwork will be emphasized with all groups. Extensive drilling to sharpen all strokes and competitive matches will be used to improve each player. Stretching, conditioning, weight training, proper practice habits, and basic and advanced singles and doubles match strategy will also be covered on the court and in the classroom.



-- The camp will use the ten Indiana University Varsity Tennis Courts. In case of rain the camp will have use of the adjacent Indiana University Tennis Pavilion.
