Chadwick Top Moments: No. 20

1997BlueGray.jpgToday, we break into the top 20 moments by shifting into 1997 for moment No. 20.  The Rebels have experienced extremely successful years under head coach Billy Chadwick in the past 30 years.  However, the great programs tend to have one of those "special" years that separate themselves.  The Rebels had one of those special years in 1995 and experienced one again in 1997.  

After advancing to the semifinals of the National Team Indoor Championships and losing to UCLA 4-3, which is an accomplishment in of itself, the Rebels began a nine match winning streak that included our top moment in the middle.

In 1997, Montgomery, Ala., played host to the Blue/Gray National Championship.  Coming off wins against No. 28 Alabama and No. 22 Auburn, the Rebels went undefeated in the tournament by topping Tulane 4-1, No. 17 Kansas 4-3, No. 22 Auburn 4-1, and No. 9 South Alabama 4-1 to claim the Blue/Gray title.

The Rebels were led by Sebastien DeChaunac, Johan Hede, and Johan Landsberg.  All three earned All-America honors and all three played a major part of that historical year for the Rebels in 1997.

Friday, we will continue our run through 1997, including a great variety of team, individual, and first-time accomplishments for the Ole Miss tennis program.  Stay tuned for moment No. 19 on Friday.

    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.
