Colleagues Select Baum as Conference's Top Coach in 2007-08

April 22, 2008

MADISON, N.J. - Goucher not only placed a singles player and a doubles team on the 2008 All-Landmark Conference Women's Tennis Team, but also produced the Coach of the Year.

Carly Heinz (Scotch Plains, NJ/Scotch Plains-Fanwood) is Goucher's representative on the inaugural All-Landmark Team for singles play and the duo of Christina Grimm (Greenwich, CT/New Hampton) and Chloe Scott-Giry (Amagansett, NY/The Ross School) earned all conference recognition for its performance in doubles competition.

The All-Landmark Team consists of a first and a second team, with six singles players and three doubles pairings per team. Voting is done by the conference's eight head coaches.

Heinz, who fashioned a 12-6 record in singles play this season, was one of the six singles players to land on the All-Landmark first team. She primarily was used at No. 2 in Goucher's singles line-up, going 9-3 at that position. She moved up to first singles three times and won two of those matches.

The Grimm/Scott-Giry tandem captured one of the three first-team spots reserved for doubles teams. When paired together, they achieved a 14-3 record, finishing one win shy of the single-season school record for victories by a doubles team.

Grimm and Scott-Giry also placed first in the first doubles draw at the Goucher Invitational back in October.

Baum, who guided the Gophers to an 11-8 record in her 26th season as Goucher's head women's tennis coach, was the choice of her colleagues as Coach of the Year in the Landmark Conference. Baum was previously named Co-Coach of the Year in the Capital Athletic Conference in 2004-05.
