BRONXVILLE, N.Y. – The awards keep piling up for the Concordia College Clippers in Bronxville, as the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) named assistant coach Daniel Rockhill its National ITA Assistant Coach of the Year.
The 14-year veteran assistant coach helped guide the men’s tennis team to a 20-2 record this season, peaking with a national ranking of sixth in Division II.
The award comes on the heels of Rockhill being named the East Region ITA Assistant Coach of the Year. This is the second time he has earned national honors from the organization.
Rockhill is a 1990 graduate of Concordia College, where he was ranked ninth national in doubles, served as a team captain, and remains the only player in Division II history to win both singles and doubles conference championships in the New York Collegiate Athletic Conference and the Metropolitan Collegiate Tennis Conference in the same season.
Neil Tarangioli, the longtime head coach of the Clippers, said that Rockhill’s experience on the court gives him an edge on the sidelines.
“Daniel is a phenomenal recruiter,” he said. “His background helps him accurately evaluate prospective student-athletes and he is able to attract very talented players to Concordia from all over the world.”
