Chadwick's Top Moments: No. 8

chadwick500.jpgSwitching gears to 2006, we recognize a duo of major accomplishments from Ole Miss head coach Billy Chadwick.  On March 22 of the 2006 season, Chadwick notched his 500th career win as a head coach, defeating Memphis in Oxford 7-0.  The 500th win includes 107 victories as the women's head coach in which Chadwick was in charge from 1979-1986.

Additionally, in the summer of 2006, Chadwick was recognized for his impact on the game of tennis as a coach and player, as well as his consistency and longevity of success.  In July of 2006, Chadwick was inducted into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame, becoming only the eighth tennis inductee.  Chadwick added this award to his list of accomplishments, including two-time SEC Coach of the Year.  

In 2006, the Rebels enjoyed yet another successful season.  The Rebs earned their fifth straight SEC West title by defeating Mississippi State 4-3, along with the program's 11th trip to the "Sweet Sixteen."  Ole Miss hosted a regional for the sixth time in seven years, and defeated No. 17 Florida State 4-2 in the Oxford regional sending the Rebels to Palo Alto, California, where they would fall to No. 3 Texas.  At the conclusion of the 2006 season, Chadwick and the Rebels boasted a 24-1 record against SEC West opponents since the league split in 2002.

The Rebels would finish the season 22-6 (8-3 SEC), the eighth 20-win season in program history, and ranked No. 13 in the final national rankings.  The Rebels were paced by All-Americans Erling Tveit and Eric Claesson.

Next week, we near the top five moments of the countdown as we close in on Billy Chadwick's legendary run as Rebel head coach.  Stay tuned to see the latest and greatest from Chadwick and the Ole Miss tennis program.

    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.
