He's won two national championships in Division II and led a team to the SEC West Championship. He's coached numerous All-Americans and All-SEC players. His teams are notorious for excellence in the classroom. Mark Beyers has accomplished a lot in 17 years as a head coach, and with four of the top seven returning from last year's squad and another talented recruiting class, the Rebels hope to take it to another level in 2016.

For the fourth time in seven years, Ole Miss finished the year ranked in the top 25, earning a final ranking of No. 24 in 2015. The Rebels earned their seventh consecutive NCAA bid and advanced to the second round, narrowly missing out on reaching the Sweet Sixteen. Julia Jones became the 11th All-American in the history of the program and the seventh member of the 100-wins club. She earned All-SEC first team honors, was named the ITA Most Improved Player of the Year and finished ranked No. 12 in the nation.

Julia Jones earned All-SEC second team honors. Off the court, the Rebels earned the ITA All-Academic Team Award and Caroline Rohde-Moe was named to the CoSIDA Capital One Academic All-District Team.

Youth was the name of the game in 2013, as the Rebels did not feature a senior on the team and only two juniors. They earned the program's 16th overall NCAA appearance, and junior Caroline Rohde-Moe participated in the NCAA Singles Championship as well as earned All-SEC honors for the second time. Off the court, the Rebels were one of the best, earning an APR Public Recognition Award and leading all sports at Ole Miss with a 3.64 team GPA in the spring.

In 2012, the Rebels earned their fourth straight NCAA appearance and a final national ranking of No. 18. It marked the third time in the last four years for the Rebels to end the year ranked in the Top 25. The Rebels (18-9) hosted the NCAA first and second rounds for the first time since 1999 and finished among the top four in the overall SEC standings for the second time in three years. The 18 wins are the most since the 1999 team posted 21. The Rebels also advanced to the National Team Indoor Final 16 for the first time since 2000. Kristi Boxx and Abby Guthrie earned All-America honors and were joined on the All-SEC team by Caroline Rohde-Moe and freshman Erin Stephens. Julia Jones made the All-Freshman team along with Stephens.

The Rebels enjoyed an excellent year in the classroom, earning the ITA All-Academic Team Award for the 16th consecutive time, while three players earned ITA Scholar-Athlete recognition. Gabby Rangel was a finalist for the SEC Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete Postgraduate Scholarship and received a Taylor Medal (highest academic honor at University).

Despite dealing with injuries to key players in 2011, the Rebels earned their third straight NCAA bid. Kristi Boxx earned All-SEC first team honors for the third year in a row. Connor Vogel made the second team.

The Rebels ended the year ranked No. 17 in the nation, posted their best finish in the SEC (2nd) since 1999 and their best league record (8-3) since 2000. Kristi Boxx and Karen Nijssen earned All-America honors, while Boxx was one of only nine players in the nation to earn the honor in both singles and doubles. Laura van de Stroet and Connor Vogel joined Boxx and Nijssen on the All-SEC team.

Academic success continued for the Rebels as they earned the Chancellor's Cup for the women's varsity squad with the highest cumulative grade point average. They also received the ITA All-Academic Team Award for the 14th time, while four players were named ITA Scholar-Athletes.

The 2005 season saw the Rebels capture the SEC Western Division Championship for the first time. In addition, the team made its 11th NCAA Championship appearance. Chloe Carlotti became the seventh All-American in the history of the program and joined an elite group of Division I players to earn that distinction at multiple schools. Carlotti and Virginia Tomatis earned All-SEC honors after going 8-3 in the league at No. 1 doubles.
