Jamie King is in his seventh season as head women's tennis coach and director of racquet sports at Hamilton College. King has been named Liberty League Coach of the Year twice, most recently in 2004, when he was honored by the New York State Women's Collegiate Athletic Association as its coach of the year.
King has guided the women's tennis program to new heights during the past two years. Hamilton was ranked 17th in the NCAA Division III Northeast regional rankings at the end of the 2006 spring season. The team's dual match record is 19-11 since the fall of 2004. Hamilton finished in second place at the 2005 state championships for the program's best showing ever in the event.
Hamilton won its first nine matches in 2004 and reached the league championship finals for the first time. One of King's student-athletes was named Player and Rookie of the Year in the Liberty League and in New York State. At that time, King had coached two of the league's past three winners of the player and rookie of the year awards.
King coached the first Hamilton women's tennis player that made the all-New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) team in 2006. Academics is an important part of King's program. One student-athlete was a 2006 NESCAC All-Academic Spring selection.
Earlier in his coaching career, King served as head men's tennis coach and assistant men's and women's squash coach at Vassar College. He was head women's tennis coach at Division I Marist College and racquets director at Poughkeepsie Tennis Club before his Vassar coaching stint.
King graduated from Williams College with a bachelor's degree in political science and American studies. He played varsity squash, tennis and soccer at Williams.
