Coach of the Year

Mike Anderson, now in his 13th season as Bainbridge varsity tennis coach, was named Metro Mountain Coach of the Year.

Anderson has continued Bainbridge’s success in the state tournament. The Spartans have had at least one player in the state tournament 21 of the last 22 years. Seven Spartans – three singles players, and two doubles teams – have already earned District Tournament berths.
