Kendall Brooks begins her fourth season as head coach for the St. Edward's University women's tennis team. In 2016, Brooks brought the Hilltoppers back to the NCAA Regional Tournament for a second-straight year. They would finish as Heartland Conference runner-up, earning the No. 4 seed in the NCAA Regional, and close the year ranked 41st in the country.
The 2016 squad featured four All-Heartland Conference players and the South Central Region Rookie of the Year. This improves on a 2015 season that saw the Hilltoppers head back to the NCAA Regional Tournament for the first time since the 2012 season. They would finish as Heartland Conference runner-up and a No. 3 seed in the NCAA Regional. In 2014, Brooks led the Hilltoppers to a spot in the Heartland Conference Tournament Semifinals, featuring a doubles team ranked 19th in the nation.
Brooks came to St. Edward's after serving as the director of Junior Development and academy coach at the Austin Tennis Academy for seven years. While at the Austin Tennis Academy, Brooks was the coordinator for the junior tennis team and the director of all women's programs. As the junior coach, she led the 18-and-under team to national titles in 2009, 2011 and 2012. She led the 14-and-under team to a national championship in 2012. During this time, Brooks was named the Capitol Area Tennis Association Pro of the Year in 2010, as well as the United States Tennis Professional Association's Texas Section Touring and National Touring Coach of the Year in 2011. Brooks was the Team Texas coach for the United States Tennis Association Boys' and Girls' 14 Zone Team Championships in 2012 and 2013.
Before the Austin Tennis Academy, Brooks served as assistant coach for Texas Tech during the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 seasons. The Red Raiders were nationally ranked in both seasons and finished with a combined 24-21 record.
Brooks was a four-year letterwinner for Texas Tech, where she compiled a career singles record of 61-58 and a doubles mark of 41-17, playing primarily at the number two and one positions, respectively, for the Red Raiders. Brooks still holds the school's career record for winning percentage in doubles play. Her sophomore season, she was the Big XII Conference winner at her positions in both singles and doubles. She was named preseason All-Big XII before her junior season and was team captain her junior and senior seasons. Brooks graduated from Texas Tech in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science, with a minor in English and Spanish. She is a Corpus Christi native.


Kendall Brooks Accepts Head Role At SEU | Austin Tennis Academy

Kendall Brooks Accepts Head Role At SEU Austin Tennis Academy Coach Kendall Brooks has accepted a position as the new Head Women's Tennis Coach at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. Coach Brooks, who has been at ATA for 7 years, previously served as an Assistant Coach at Texas Tech University for 2 years. "I have always wanted to get back into college coaching," Coach Brooks said. "My dream has always been to be a head college coach. This position gave me the opportunity to fulfill that dream while also staying at home in Austin." On top of her team tennis experience as a player and then an assistant coach at Texas Tech University, Kendall also served as the Coordinator of USTA Junior Team Tennis at ATA, logging four National Championships along the way. "I love the team atmosphere," Coach Brooks said. "Competing and winning (or losing) as a team is really what gets me motivated, as a player and as a coach. Not everyone gets to experience this as a junior player on the USTA circuit, or even a pro player on tour." Looking ahead, Coach Brooks expressed her excitement about the opportunity to have her own program and put together her own team. "I also think that I am really going to like St. Edward's," Kendall said. "It is a smaller school with a family-like feel and I'm looking forward to getting back on a college campus that has a lot of pride in athletics." St. Edward's University is a private, liberal arts university in downtown Austin with roughly 5000 undergraduate students. Set just off of South Congress Ave, the campus' Main Building is one of the highest points in Austin proper, offering breathtaking views of the downtown skyline. Coach Brooks will take over a Hilltopper team that finished the season ranked #31 in the nation, with a record of 11-8. She will look to improve on this past year's season where the team lost in the Heartland Conference Championship to St. Mary's University. "My goal is to bring St. Edward's to the top of the Heartland Conference, and within a few years be competing with the top D-II schools in the country and putting ourselves in position to play post-season tennis each year," Coach Brooks said. "I hope to do so by bringing in some of the Texas talent that I have been watching grow for all these years!" While Coach Brooks will start a new chapter in her coaching career, she will not be closing the book completely on ATA. "I have been at ATA for 7 years, so leaving was always going to be hard," Coach Brooks said. "The good part about this new job is that it will still allow me to be a part of the ATA family. My role will definitely be changing as I take on this new challenge, but I plan on being around and involved as much as I can." While Kendall has taught junior athletes at ATA for 7 years, the learning has definitely gone both ways.

...
Good luck, Coach Brooks! The ATA community will be cheering for you and your Hilltopper team!
