1997_SEC_Champions.jpgContinuing with 1997, we reveal moment No. 19 in our chronological countdown of the top moments in Ole Miss head coach Billy Chadwick's tenure.  Today, we highlight one of the prestigious team moments that the Rebels encountered that year.

It is well documented how difficult and rugged the Southeastern Conference is; there are no bad teams.  Not only are the teams not bad, the majority of the teams annually rank among the nation's top 25 in the country.  In 1997, the SEC had six teams finish in the top 10 of the ITA national rankings.  In that same year, the Rebels captured the overall SEC Championship  for the second straight year.  

The Rebels posted a 12-2 conference record on their way to becoming champions of the best league in college tennis.  The Rebels led the SEC with three players named to the All-SEC First Team: Johan Hede (third consecutive year), Johan Landsberg, and Sebastien DeChaunac.  The Rebels ended conference play, including the SEC Tournament, on a 10-game winning streak that included wins over No. 30 Florida (4-2), No. 3 Mississippi State (5-2), at No.5 Kentucky (6-1) and No. 2 Georgia (4-2).  The Rebels finished the season 25-4 overall, 12-2 in the SEC.

With three additional moments from 1997 that even further proves the Rebels as one of the top programs in all of college tennis, do not miss out on the remembrance of these great events.  Stay tuned.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.
