Samford University tennis coach Pat Breen was named the Trans America Athletic Conference Women's Coach-of-the-Year, in voting done by the conference head coaches and released by the conference office on Tuesday.

    Breen, who earned TAAC Women's Coach-of-the-Year honors in 1993, plus two men's Coach-of-the-Year awards, guided the Samford women to a 12-9 record and a second-place finish in the TAAC Tournament last month in DeLand, Fla.

    Samford placed Robert Sproul, a former Briarwood Christian standout, and Bernie Staub on the honorable mention men's team, while senior Danielle Dodds earned a spot on the honorable mention women's team.
