Jeff Trivette

Jeff Trivette has been named SoCon coach of the year for women’s tennis. Trivette earned his first coach of the year award on the women’s side after leading UNCG to its first league title since 1999 and first-ever outright SoCon title. The Spartans, ranked No. 74 nationally late in the season, went 10-0 in the league for the first time in school history. Trivette, who was the league’s men’s coach of the year in 2001, is UNCG’s first SoCon Coach of the Year for the Spartan women since Paul Lubbers took the award in 1999. He becomes just the third coach in league history to earn the honor on both the men’s and women’s sides, Phil Perry notes.

UNCG redshirt junior Niltooli Wilkins is SoCon Women’s Tennis Player of the Year. At No. 1 seed, she went 10-0 in conference play. Full story at UNCG Athletics.

On the men’s side, UNCG senior Orcun Seyrek was named SoCon Men’s Tennis Player of the Year for the second time in his career. He was 10-0 in conference play, as the No. 1 seed.
