Women's tennis names Dumitrescu as Assistant Coach

Friday, August 25, 2006

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (August 25, 2006) - With the departure of Margie Brown-Katras, ETSU women's tennis head coach Steve Brooks announced today the addition of Anca Dumitrescu as Assistant Coach for the 2006-07 season.

 

"I am very happy to add Anca to the program," said Brooks. "She brings lots of playing experience and she is very positive and is a hard worker."

 

A native of Bucharest, Romania, Dumitrescu joins the ETSU women's tennis team for her first year as an assistant coach at the collegiate level. She comes to ETSU from Florida State University where she served as the Manager and Volunteer Assistant Coach for the Seminoles.

 

Dumitrescu also played collegiately at Florida State. While there, she was ranked as high as No. 24, led the Seminoles to two NCAA appearances, qualified for the NCAA singles tournament in 2002 and 2004, and was named to the ACC All-Conference team in 2003 and 2004. Additionally, she was named the ITA's South Region Player of the Year and the co-ITA/Arthur Ashe Jr. Award for Leadership and Sportsmanship in 2004.

 

Dumitrescu had an extensive junior career that included being the National Tennis Champion in singles and doubles in 1999 and qualifying for the European Championships. She was also ranked in the Top 500 in the WTA.

A graduate of Colegiul National Ion Luca Caragiale in Bucharest, she attended Virginia Commonwealth University, where she was a CAA All-Conference first team, before transferring to FSU.

 

Brown-Katras stepped down as the assistant coach of the Lady Bucs to pursue volunteer opportunities with the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity.

 

"I'm sad that Margie chose to step down, but I will honor her decision," said Brooks. "Margie will be deeply missed by me and the entire women's tennis team. But I know that Anca will continue the hard work that Margie started and will help the program continue to reach new heights," added Brooks.
