Mary Washington class of 1995 alumnus Patrick Catullo has been named as his alma mater's new women's tennis coach in the summer of 2004. Catullo, who played in the Mary Washington program for four years, returns to MWC having won the past two National Junior College Association of America national championship as the women's coach at Broward Community College in Florida. "We're really excited to have Patrick on board, and believe that he will bring the same kind of success that he's had the past few years at Broward", said MWC Athletic Director Ed Hegmann. "The student athletes involved in the interview process feel he can lead them to the next level of NCAA success. The fact that he is an MWC alumnus and his familiarity with the standard excellence here makes him a perfect fit." Catullo has coached at Broward Community College since 2000, and has produced thirty state champions, eight national champions, and 18 All-Americans. His Seahawk teams have posted a 76-22 overall record, including a 43-1 conference mark during that time. Prior to his work at Broward CC, where he also worked as sports information director and assistant athletic coordinator, he served as an assistant coach at Flagler College and as a tennis pro at the ATP Country Club in Ponte Vedre, Florida. He is a member of the USPTR, and is a certified teaching professional from that organization. "It is an incredible honor to return to Mary Washington as the women's tennis coach", said Catullo. "There is a distinguished honor about the women's team and a great tradition of success. I look forward to challenges as well as the successes that lay ahead for the MWC Tennis Team." Catullo will inherit one of the most successful programs in the history of MWC athletics - one that has won three national championships and advanced to eighteen NCAA Tournaments, including in each of the past six years. Catullo and his wife, Linda, currently live in Coconut Creek, FL, and will relocate to the Fredericksburg area this summer.
