Chadwick Top Moments: No. 31

On the heels of the Ole Miss men's tennis program producing its first ever All-Americans, Billy Chadwick led his team to yet another unprecedented achievement.  In 1989, the Rebels earned their first ever NCAA Tournament bid.

However, in 1989, tRandall_Dave_action.jpghe NCAA Tournament field was not the same as it is today.  When the Rebels earned their first invitation, the NCAA only selected 16 teams to compete in the prestigious NCAA Championships.

Ole Miss was led by a familiar name in team captain Dave Randall, who ranked as high as No. 9 in the Volvo Tennis/Collegiate Series poll in 1989.  That year, the Rebels defeated 10 nationally ranked teams en route to the program's first NCAA Tournament appearance. 

"The road to the NCAAs was an exciting journey," said Ole Miss coach Billy Chadwick.  "Week after week this team put forth great effort.  Anytime you beat the likes of SMU, Pepperdine and Clemson, you have had a great year."

A great year by the Rebels indeed.  As a result of the successful season, the Rebels also became the first Ole Miss men's tennis team ever to finish the season nationally ranked (No. 15).  The Rebels fell to Miami in the first round of the NCAA Championships, ending the season with a 17-10 record and the No. 15 national ranking.

In addition to Randall, the Rebels were paced by sophomores Keith Evans, Jamie Booras and freshman Mike Knowles.  Evans reached the finals at No. 2 singles at the SEC Tournament and was a member of the All-SEC team.  Booras and Knowles reached the SEC Tournament finals at No. 2 doubles, while Booras teamed with Randall for the duo's second NCAA doubles appearance.  Randall capped the year by winning the prestigious Rafael Osuna National Sportsmanship Award, presented to the most outstanding collegiate tennis player that demonstrates both great skill and exemplifies sportsmanship.

Stay tuned next week for Nos.30, 29 and 28.

    How can you have five straight top 25 recruiting classes and look as bad as Ole Miss has this year. Easy lack of coaching fundamentals. Look at Mason at Vandy, nothing but 2 and 3 star recruits out of high school and he developers players that want to win. Hugh freeze has 3, 4 & 5 recruits and he expects them to win because of what they were in High School. Mr. Freeze you have not been teaching the fundamentals of football or winning in life. Mr. Freeze you have quit on your players because you have some false expectations of what they are instead of what you can develop in them. Either do your job or quit. Oh yea, please quit running your smoke and mirrors offense, everyone has figured it out. Run a physical offense that can open up holes for your running backs and then your pass attack want require 12 are 14 four and five star receivers. Mr. Freeze you have problems and you need to know that you are not smarter than the rest of the coaches in the SEC.

    Not every pass can be caught. Too low, too short whatever. Not every Kelly pass is perfect. Records were broken by receivers also. But they sre not going to catch every ball thrown. The loss to Auburn was not one players fault. You win or lose as a team.
