OXFORD, Miss. - Ole Miss men's tennis head coach Billy Chadwick, who is retiring at the end of the season, built one of the best programs in college tennis on and off the courts, and as a result, the Rebelsboast one of the top fan bases in college tennis. For the seventh consecutive year, the Rebels ranked among the nation's top 10 in attendance, finishing third in the recently released ITA Attendance Race standings.
The Rebels played in front of 4,345 fans this season. Ole Miss also boasted the fourth largest crowd for a single match, with 622 fans coming out to watch the Rebels defeat Texas A&M 4-3 in Chadwick's last home SEC match.
"We have the best fans in the entire nation, and our success is a tribute to them," Chadwick said. "It's great to be recognized again, and for the players our fans are what make their Ole Miss experience something special."
Ole Miss earned its 21st consecutive NCAA appearance and advanced to the second round, before dropping a tight 4-2 decision to No. 13 Notre Dame, Sunday.
The Rebels were led by SEC Player of the Year Nik Scholtz, who will continue his season next week in the NCAA Singles Championship. Scholtz is seeded for the third straight year.
