The Jersey Community High School (JCHS) Panthers tennis coach Dan Diamond was recently named the 1A Boys Regional Coach of the Year by the Illinois High School Tennis Coaches Association (IHSTCA).
Coach Diamond said it’s an honor to be recognized, but feels the credit really goes to his team and their families.
“I have been coaching boys tennis for 15 years, I can’t say enough about the players on our team last season,” Diamond said. “We had a 12-3 record in our regular meets, and finished strongly in tournaments. We placed third overall in a very tough IHSA Sectional in Springfield. We qualified a doubles team and singles player for the IHSA State Tournament and they had a lot of success. It’s an honor to be recognized by the IHSTCA with this award, but all the credit honestly goes to my players and their families. They were a great group to work with and their effort and attitude enabled us to have a great season.”
The IHSTCA will recognize Coach Diamond and the other regional coaches at their winter workshop on February 3, 2023.
