Patric Hynes Named Men's Tennis Assistant Coach
June 27, 2011
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Randy Bloemendaal, head coach of Indiana men's tennis, has announced the hiring of Patric Hynes as his assistant coach. Hynes comes to Bloomington after seven years at Presbyterian College, spending the last two as the head coach of men's and women's tennis.
Bloemendaal said that Hynes brings with him experience at the Division I level and the success of winning conference titles.
"Patric took Presbyterian College from Division II to Division I, which is a very difficult transition, especially when you're managing two teams," said Bloemendaal. "He saw great success at Presbyterian, winning conference titles and going undefeated in their league. Our goal is always to win the Big Ten, and we were one match away from that this season, so Patric's successes and experience should help us right away."
Hynes was the Men's Tennis Coach of the Year in the South Atlantic Conference in 2006, and led the Blue Hose to back to back undefeated conference records and conference titles in 2006 and 2007. In his tenure as a college coach, Hynes has coached three conference-championship teams, 18 ITA Scholar Athletes, and three ITA All-America teams. He has coached 18 all-conference student-athletes, three student-athletes that earned Freshman of the Year accolades and three that garnered Player of the Year honors.
Hynes earned a degree in business administration from Lees-McRae College in 2000. He was an All-Carolinas-Virginia Conference player at Lees-McRae, as was Bloemendaal. Hynes is a native of Melbourne, Australia, and has a daughter, Miriam, with his wife Judi.
