Head Coach Linda Andrews
The 2011 Centennial Conference coach of the year earned her 200th career win when the Mules defeated McDaniel, 8-1, in 2012. She has coached Muhlenberg to a .500-or-better record in the highly competitive CC each of the last 13 years.
After a two-year break, Andrews returned as head coach of the Muhlenberg women's tennis team for the 2001-02 school year and has led the Mules to some of their best seasons ever.
In 2002, Muhlenberg won a school-record 12 matches and earned a share of the Centennial Conference championship. The 2003 team won its final 10 and produced the program's first CC singles champion. In 2004, the squad captured its first outright CC title, again won 12 matches, shut out a school-record seven opponents and had players in both the singles and doubles finals of the conference tournament.
The 2005 team again tied the school record for wins and received the program's first bid to the NCAA Championships.
Playing against a challenging schedule, Muhlenberg is 113-75 (.601) overall and 94-36 (.723) in the Centennial the last 13 years. The Mules annually appear in the regional rankings and finished the 2004 campaign ranked 28th in Division III.
One of Andrews' players received bids to the NCAA Championships and earned All-America honors – both program firsts – in 2005 and 2006.
A 1968 graduate of Springfield College, Andrews coached the Mules from 1983 to 1999, compiling a record of 100-98 and winning 10 division championships in an 11-year span.
Andrews has played tennis for more than 20 years, holding numerous singles and doubles titles at her local club.
Andrews also serves Muhlenberg as coordinator of the physical education curriculum and director of the Wellness Institute and was head coach of cross country from 1990 to 2004. Prior to coming to Muhlenberg, she was women's tennis coach at Willamette University in Salem, Ore.
