ROSEMONT – The Rosemont College Athletic Department has named Charles Nedzbala the head coach for the men’s and women’s varsity tennis programs. “I’m very excited for this opportunity,” said Nedzbala. “Coaching at the collegiate level has been a dream of mine for a long time. This is where I belong.”
Nedzbala relocates from New Hampshire where he was the Head Coach for Girls Varsity Tennis at Hollis Brookline High School. There, he led the team to an 11-3 record his first season and had one of his players make it to the elite eight in the state tournament.
“I’ve gained a lot of great experience from [Hollis Brookline],” added Nedzbala. “I’m going to bring enthusiasm, desire and a real energy. I want to see [Rosemont succeed] and make it better.”
Nedzbala graduated from the United States Military University of Health Sciences in San Antonio, Texas with a Bachelors Degree in Business Management and Economic Science. While there, he lettered in basketball and baseball. After, he served as a Combat Medic for the 82nd Airborne Division in the U.S. Army for 16 years and is a veteran of Desert Shield.
Nedzbala will begin his tenure with the men’s program in the spring of 2010. The team’s first match will be on Monday, March 15th against Eastern University.
“For my first season, the goal will be to put ourselves in a position to succeed,” Nedzbala said. “I want a team of players that will give their effort, time and energy to this great opportunity they have.”
