Middle School Girls' Tennis
The Middle School Girls’ Tennis team won the 2017 GCMSAA Championship and were undefeated in regular season play. Charlotte Latin School’s middle school sports philosophy is that participation provides the opportunity for many teachable moments of life’s lessons. In athletics, honoring yourself, your team, your opponent, officials and the game you play are qualities we encourage in our student-athletes every day.
Coach Thompson has worked in the tennis industry for more than 40 years in virtually every aspect of the sport (teaching, playing, programing, consulting, writing). He was named Pro of the Year in 2015 by the Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), and he came to Latin to lead the middle school girls’ and boys’ teams in 2016.
Coach Hanson is a 1989 alumna who has worked with the Middle School Girls' Tennis Team since 2016. She played and taught tennis during her years at Georgetown University, where earned a B.S. in marketing before going on to complete an MBA at Harvard Business School. Coach Hanson has three children at Charlotte Latin.
