gatoradebath.jpgMoving along chronologically, today we delve into the top 10 moments of Ole Miss men's tennis coach Billy Chadwick continuing with the 2005 season, which was one of the most exciting seasons in Ole Miss tennis history.

In 2005, the Rebels would capture their second consecutive Southeastern Conference Championship and fourth overall (1996, 1997 and 2004).  The Rebels posted a 10-1 conference record, highlighted by wins over No. 12 Kentucky, No. 20 Auburn, No. 7 Florida and No. 20 Mississippi State.  The Rebels would claim the SEC in thrilling fashion.  On the last day of the regular season, Chadwick and the Rebels marched into Starkville and clinched the SEC with a 4-3 win over their arch-rival, making it the 10th straight win over MSU for Chadwick and the Rebs.  The Rebels won the SEC West as well, bringing their record against SEC West opponents to a dominant 20-0 since the 2002 season.

The Rebels were paced by team captain Catalin Gard, who opened the season ranked No. 1 in the country, junior Juan Pablo Di Cesare, along with freshman phenoms Erling Tveit, Jakob Klaeson and Bram ten Berge.  Di Cesare won the clincher in Starkville to propel the Rebels to the SEC title.  Tveit made his presence known early and often, going 9-2 in the SEC as a freshman and earning All-SEC honors.  Klaeson and ten Berge were instrumental as a doubles tandem, posting an 18-9 overall doubles record.

Winning the rigid Southeastern Conference was just the beginning of the success that the Rebels would encounter throughout the magical 2005 season.  Tune back in on Friday as we divulge the depths in which this Rebel squad went in the postseason.

    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.
