Trinity Tennis in the 1960s and 70s: A Historic American Sporting Dynasty

This page is going to serve to show the dominance of Trinity Tennis in the 1960s and 70s. This dominance came as the result of an extremely deep team. Though there were numerous superstars, the ability of every single member of the team to win big matches consistently was critical. This dynasty is comprable to many of the most historic American sporting dynasties, such as the current Alabama football squad, the New England Patriots, and more recent Golden State Warriors. This era was very impressive for a college tennis team, and this exhibit serves to show how impressive they were, and how depth of talent played the biggest role in this success.

President Ron Calgaard

Dr. Calgaard became the 16th President of Trinity University and was in charge from 1979-1999. President Calgaard was elected into the Trinity University Athletic's Hall of Fame in 2005. He is the only University President who has been inducted into the Athletics Hall of Fame and had a profound impact on athletics and the athletic department at Trinity University. 

To this day Trinity University continues to have a nationally competitive Division III athletics program, because of the influence and direction of President Calgaard. Throughout his 20 year tenure as President of Trinity University, Dr. Calgaard developed and approved the plans for the William H. Bell Center, oversaw the transition as the school joined the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference, and created a community environment where students and student-athletes could interact and learn together. Without the guidance of President Calgaard, who knows where Trinity would be today.
