Ferguson named coach at Limestone

Alan Ferguson
GAFFNEY, S.C. -- Limestone College and vice president for intercollegiate athletics Mike Cerino have announced that Alan Ferguson, after completing a season as interim men's and women's coach, has been named to the permanent position for both programs effective immediately.

A 25-year collegiate coaching veteran, Ferguson brought a wealth of coaching expertise to the Saints this season, including 10 NCAA tournament appearances, six of which came at the Division I level.

"We were fortunate to have an experienced individual such as Alan Ferguson lead our tennis programs on an interim basis this past year," Cerino said. "Seeing the success that both teams enjoyed, it made perfect sense for him to take over the programs on a full-time basis and we are looking forward to his continued leadership in that role."

This season he took over a men's tennis program that lost a pair of Intercollegiate Tennis Association first-team All-Americans and a young women's team. The men went 13-8 overall and 5-3 in Conference Carolinas play and advanced to the league tournament semifinals.

The women posted a 12-9 campaign overall but a 7-2 league mark that set them up as the No. 3 seed. The Saints defeated North Greenville 5-1 in the Conference Carolinas tournament quarterfinals before dropping a 5-0 semifinal decision to Pfeiffer. They beat Mount Olive for third place in the tournament for the third consecutive year, again with a 5-4 score.

The men's team earned a pair of All-Conference third-team honorees in Antoine Le Dore and Stefano Soares while the latter was also named all-tournament as a freshman. The women produced a program-record-tying three all-conference selections as Alexandra Boulbin, Marian Pinate and Manon Janin collected those honors. Boulbin was also named all-tournament.
