“We are very excited that Coach Drossman will be joining us for the upcoming season,” said Athletics Director James Lally. “With the women’s season right around the corner, we are anxious to get to work on what will prove to be an exciting year for Bears tennis.”
Drossman joined the Bears last spring as assistant men’s tennis coach for the team’s first season in the Skyline Conference.
“I’ve been a part of this program for a year now and believe that I know what it needs for St. Joseph’s tennis to be a force in the Skyline Conference,” said Drossman.
The North Carolina native possesses over 20 years of tennis coaching experience and is a tennis pro at the Prospect Park Tennis Club, where he teaches all ages and abilities.
Drossman played collegiately at Guilford College, where he competed at the top singles position and in his junior year was ranked No. 33 in the nation. Drossman still has his name etched in the Quakers record book, ranked 2nd in career overall wins and 3rd in career singles wins.
Playing from 1996-99, he amassed 100 victories, compiling a career 57-30 record at singles and a 43-34 record in doubles. He was ranked as high as ninth in the state of North Carolina as a junior tennis player.
The women’s tennis team will open a 13-match 2016 slate on September 6 at Rutgers University.
