W&M Announces Change in Leadership of Women's Tennis Program
Williamsburg, Va. - The William and Mary Athletics Department announced a change in leadership of the Tribe women's tennis program on Monday. Meredith Geiger-Walton has resigned the women's tennis head coach position at the College, and Director of Athletics Terry Driscoll will begin a national search for a replacement immediately. No timetable has been established to name a successor.
Geiger-Walton spent the last four years as the head coach of the Tribe program, leading W&M to a 46-48 dual match record (.489). In 2011, W&M won the program's 21st Colonial Athletic Association Championship and advanced to its 18th NCAA Tournament.

In total, the College produced 18 All-CAA honoree (10 singles/8 doubles) over the last four years.
"We appreciate all that Meredith has done for the Tribe women's tennis program," Driscoll said. "We would like to thank her for her four years at William and Mary. Now, we will turn our attention to identifying a head coach who can help in continuing the longstanding tradition of our women's tennis program."
The Tribe women's tennis program is storied both nationally and in the CAA.
