Julie Coin Earns Second Straight All-America Honors

June 6, 2005

CLEMSON, SC – Julie Coin of the Clemson women’s tennis team was named to the 2005 ITA All-American team in both singles and doubles. It marks the first time since Sophie Woorons earned both honors for the 1996 season that a Tiger women’s tennis player has done so. Coin met all three requirements for selection as she was the number two seed in the NCAA Singles Championships, reached the final eight of the tournament and was ranked #2 in the final ITA poll.

Coin finished the 2004-05 season with a 38-5 overall record, including a 26-2 mark in the dual matches. The native of Amiens, France became the first Clemson women’s tennis player to advance to the round of 16 of the singles championships twice in her career before falling in the Elite Eight. Her statistics for the year rank her among the top 10 in the Clemson record book for several individual season categories. Her 38 singles wins rank fifth in history and her singles winning percentage of .884 ties Susan Hill for sixth. Coin also won 74 sets, placing her eighth in that category.

Coin also earned All-America honors in doubles with fellow graduate Alix Lacelarie after the Tiger tandem finished the season ranked 10th in the final ITA doubles poll. Coin and Lacelarie compiled a 14-3 overall mark and 10-1 dual match record for the 2004-05 season. The duo posted five upsets over higher ranked teams during the year, including wins over the #2-ranked team from Northwestern in the NCAA round of 16, North Carolina’s fifth-ranked team in the final eight of the national tournament and three top-15 teams during the regular season.
