Clemson’s Coin And Malroux Earn ITA Southeast Region Accolades

May 15, 2003

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson women’s tennis sophomore Julie Coin and assistant coach Sylvain Malroux earned ITA region honors, as announced by the Intercollegiate Tennis Assocation. Coin was named the Southeast Region Player to Watch, while Malroux was tabbed the Southeast Region Assistant Coach of the Year. The ITA Player to Watch Award goes to a player who has an outstanding season and is expected to perform at a high level the rest of his or her career. This award’s criteria also includes a player’s sportsmanship and character.

A sophomore from Amiens, France, Coin was named to the 2003 All-ACC team, and earned ACC Player of the Week honors on four occassions this season. She is currently ranked 19th in singles, and is ranked 27th in doubles with teammate Laurence Jayet. Coin will compete in the 2003 NCAA Individual Championships in singles and doubles. She has a 19-3 record in dual matches and was 7-1 in conference play in her first season at Clemson. In doubles, Coin and Jayet posted a 16-6 dual match record and a 6-1 mark in ACC play.

Malroux is in his second year as an assistant coach with the Tigers. The native of Narbonne, France, has helped guide Clemson to back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Team Championships. Last year, Malroux helped coach then-freshman Alix Lacelarie to a second-round appearance in the NCAA Individual Tournament. This year, Lacelarie and Coin will compete in the singles tournament, while Coin and Jayet compete in the doubles draw.

Coin and Malroux are eligible for the ITA national awards, to be announced on May 18 in Gainesville, FL.
