Coach's Corner #1 - A letter from the desk of Coach Gary Glassman
Aug 23, 2013
Stony Brook, N.Y. -
Greetings and welcome to the preseason edition of the 2013-14 Coach's Corner - a newsletter to keep you informed and up to date on Stony Brook Tennis!
Homecoming - aka Wolfstock - aka Long Island's biggest outdoor BBQ will be Saturday, October 5. Both teams will be in town this year and we would love to have a get-together at the courts on Saturday morning. Please let me know if you'll be in town and we'll have bagels, juice and maybe some Seawolves gear to give away.
News and Notes
Mike "Nails" Crooks '06 celebrated his sixth anniversary to the lovely Felicity back in July. On the other hand, "Tiger" Tal Meir '06 has dated the last five consecutive Miss Israel winners, but has not popped the question to any of them. Ilan "Storm" Shvartz '10 will be celebrating his 2nd anniversary in October and has settled in Maryland (land of Jon "Enigma" Epstein '10).
Georgia "Peach" Bushell '04 is healthy and competing again as she made her comeback on the grass back in March. Big congrats to Georgia!! Lauren "Pua" Conching '04, the 2013 Division II National Coach of the Year, made a visit back to campus this summer and I met her husband, Hendrik. Speaking of coming back to campus, "Pistol" Paola Rodolfi '10 will be coming to town September 4 and we're excited to see her again. If any of you are planning to attend the US Open, please let me know and we'll see if we can arrange an ad hoc reunion.
Roope "Sniper" Kailaheimo '12 has completed his course work at the London School of Economics and will finish in December. Chloe "C-Lo" Pike `13 will be starting her graduate work at University of Bath (pronounced differently in the UK) this fall and Robert "Big Bear" Forai '13 will be heading to the University of Glasgow for his graduate studies. Such is the Circle of Seawolves Life.
