Joining Storz as an individual award winner in 2011 was teammate Mariel Herrera of Agnes Scott who was named the Women’s Tennis Freshman of the Year finishing undefeated in GSAC play at 7-0 also not dropping a set to a conference foe.

For his efforts guiding the Scotties to a regular season championship in women’s tennis, Agnes Scott Head Coach Glen Hill was named the GSAC Coach of the Year for the third time in four years. The veteran leader’s squad finished the league season undefeated at 7-0 to earn the #1 seed in the upcoming championship tournament to defend their 2010 title.

On the men’s side, Moses Das of Piedmont College earns his second straight nod as the GSAC Player of the Year finishing league action with a 5-1 record taking 11 of the 14 sets he played in conference. The GSAC Men’s Tennis Freshman of the Year is Tyler Creamer of Huntingdon College who carried an undefeated 6-0 record at the #2 singles slot for the regular season champion Hawks.
