A trip to Hollywood last spring wasn’t enough of a consolation prize for Ole Miss men’s tennis coach Billy Chadwick. The Rebels’ long-time coach may not have been too far from Beverly Hills on May 12, 2011, but a win over UCLA in the second round of last season’s NCAA Tournament would have been worth more than anything located on the famed Rodeo Drive.
Ole Miss finished the 2011 campaign with a 13-10 overall record and a second-round exit in the NCAAs, something that is uncharacteristic of a team coached by Chadwick.
The Rebels, who start the new season ranked No. 24 in the nation, are looking to change their fortune in 2012 and get back to hosting NCAA regionals in Oxford. (January 17, 2012, Page 8)
