2009_SECChampions.jpgCounting down the top moments in coach Chadwick's career, we take a look at the 2009 Ole Miss tennis team's success along with a couple of individual milestones. 

Chadwick led the Rebels to their fifth overall Southeastern Conference Championship in 2009.  The Rebels won the title in convincing fashion, going undefeated in conference play for the second time in program history.  The Rebels dominated the nation's toughest conference in the regular season as well as the postseason.  Ole Miss finished the regular season 11-0, with wins over No. 4 Georgia, No. 5 Tennessee, No. 7 Florida, No. 13 Kentucky, and No. 16 South Carolina.  The Rebels continued the streak into the SEC Tournament by going undefeated and winning the SEC Tournament Championship for the second consecutive season, leading to Kalle Norberg earning SEC Tournament MVP honors.  Norberg went 3-0 in singles and doubles during the tournament and also went 9-0 in the SEC in the regular season.  

With five overall SEC Championships, Chadwick trails only legendary football coach John Vaught for most SEC titles won at Ole Miss in any sport (6).

The Rebels also advanced to the NCAA Elite Eight for the ninth time in program history.  The Rebels took down two host teams en route to the Elite Eight, including LSU in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, respectively.  The Rebels would end the season losing to UCLA 4-3, finishing the season 27-3 and ranked No. 4 in the final polls.  This marked the seventh time in Ole Miss history for the Rebels to end the season ranked in the top five.

We will end this week with a moment that is arguably one of the greatest individual accomplishments in the history of Ole Miss sports.  Stay tuned to see who and what capped off one of the best seasons in men's tennis history.

    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.
