Clemson’s Julie Coin Named 2004 ACC Women’s Tennis Player Of The Year

April 15, 2004

GREENSBORO, NC – Clemson’s Julie Coin was named the 2004 Atlantic Coast Conference Women’s Tennis Player of the Year as announced by the conference on Thursday morning. It is the 12th time in program history that a Tiger women’s tennis player has earned the conference’s top honor, and the first time since Sophie Woorons garnered the award in 1996. The Tigers’ Daniela Alvarez and Maria Brito were also named to the All-ACC team for the 2004 season. It is the seventh time in school history that Clemson has had three or more student-athletes named to the all-conference women’s tennis team.

Duke led all teams with four players on this season’s All-Conference team, while the Tigers placed three on the team. Florida State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina and Wake Forest each had two student-athletes selected and Maryland, NC State and Virginia rounded out the All-Conference team with one selection apiece.

Coin, a junior from Amiens, France, is ranked eighth nationally by the ITA in singles. She has compiled an overall season record of 23-7, including a 17-4 record in dual match play and a 7-1 conference mark at flight one singles. Coin has collected 27 wins for the Tigers in doubles competition while maintaining a 6-2 record in ACC doubles play. Coin and Brito won the 2003 ITA Southeast Regional Doubles Championship during the fall season, becoming the first doubles team in Clemson history to capture the title. This is the second consecutive year that Coin has been named to the All-ACC team.

Alvarez, a native of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, is also a two-time All-ACC honoree. The sophomore, currently ranked 84th by the ITA in singles, has tallied a 23-8 overall record with a 16-5 dual match record and a 6-2 record in ACC singles action. In doubles play on the season, Alvarez is 19-5 overall, 16-4 in dual match play and 7-1 in the conference.

Brito earns All-ACC honors after recording a 25-9 overall record in singles play (16-6 dual, 6-2 ACC). The freshman from Mexico City, Mexico is currently ranked in a tie for 114th in the ITA singles poll. Brito has compiled a 30-6 overall record in doubles on the season, including a 19-3 dual match record and a 7-1 mark in league play.

The Tigers begin play at the 2004 ACC Women’s Tennis Championships on Friday at 9:00 a.m. at the Millbrook Exchange Tennis Center in Raleigh, NC. Clemson is the top-seeded team in the tournament after claiming the regular season ACC title with a perfect 8-0 record, and will face the winner of eighth-seeded Maryland vs. ninth-seeded NC State on Friday morning.
