Somethings to think about:
Hello “Coach Mo!”
Clovis Hi tennis coach comes to TACC all the way from Pittsburgh! She was born into a tennis family and has played all her life. You know it snows in Pittsburgh so her very innovative dad built an indoor tennis facility- where Maureen and her siblings “cut their teeth” in tennis.
Maureen was learning the “tennis business” from the front desk to the practice courts—and loved it.
She excelled all through her junior years and into college at Duquesne University. (It’s pronounced Dukane.) Interestingly she was music major and the first athlete going through on a music and tennis scholarships! She persevered and received a Master’s in Classical Percussion.
She left her mark at Duquesne with awards and recognitions: City of Pittsburgh Women in Sports Award for Leadership, MVP senior year, Team Captain and lead her team ably playing singles and especially doubles her favorite.
Maureen’s tennis career is notable in other areas—Manager of the famed Rivera Tennis Club for 15 years. While there Maureen hosted many famous players and tournaments (think Connors, Agassi, and Evert) including the Women’s All American Tennis Championships that she directed; which featured all the top ten American athletes.
So, playing tennis, managing clubs, directing tournaments—all were in Maureen’s purview and she excelled at them, but she found out her favorite of all –teaching. Maureen is a member of PTR Professional Tennis Registry which is huge on the East coast. That brought her to her calling, teaching.
She is now building players and teams at Clovis High School and elementary schools feeding into Clark Intermediate. These players will form the basis of strong high school teams, which can then lead to college, or teaching, or coaching - there are many more options too.
Maureen teaches fundamentals that quickly transition to competition using techniques easy to learn and master. All her students know her funny phrases, and don’t forget them, helping them keep their strokes pure. She is reminded constantly by students coming up to her long after they have "graduated", smiling and saying the phrases she taught them years back.
“I may not always be coaching them, but I’ll always be with them”.
