Lenoir-Rhyne's Brigit Folland has been named the ITA Regional Men's Tennis Assistant Coach of the Year. Folland helped the Bears to the most wins in a single season in program history.

"Brigit has been instrumental in turning around the culture and competitiveness of Lenoir-Rhyne Men's Tennis," said Head Coach Tom Rees. "When she came in two years ago, the guys record was 11-10 and they were unranked and eighth in the SAC. At the conclusion of this season, the guys went 18-5 (8-2 in conference) and tied for second in the conference along with being ranked No. 21 nationally. She has endless energy, tremendous hunger to grow as a coach and cares deeply for her players."

Folland helped LR beat No. 5 Wingate and coached six players to All-Conference selections. Off the court, the Bears completed over 140 hours of community service and had a team GPA of 3.65.
