Chadwick has been coaching at Ole Miss for what will be 35 years and, as a tribute, we are going to reflect and try to highlight the 35 top moments of Chadwick's tenure.  For a coach that has accumulated over 600 wins during his career, picking out only 35 is no small feat.

We are going to begin with #35 today, and we will countdown until the last match of the season.  

Chadwick began his coaching career at Ole Miss in 1979 as the women's tennis coach, laying the foundation for the excellent team they have today.

No. 35 on our list is Chadwick's first big win as the women's tennis coach at Ole Miss.  In 1982, he led the Lady Rebels to the SEC finals with a big upset over No. 2 Georgia (5-4) in the semifinals.  They also beat No. 4 seeded Vanderbilt 8-1 in the quarterfinals.

The Lady Rebels went on to finish seventh in the AIAW Nationals and earned the program's first top 20 national ranking.  

Stay tuned for #34 on Thursday.  We are just getting started.
