UGA's memorable run caps Wallace's illustrious career
Another trip to the NCAA semifinals - Georgia's 14th appearance under head coach Jeff Wallace - brings to a close Wallace's remarkable 38-year tenure as the head coach of the Bulldogs' women's tennis program.
The 2023 Southeastern Conference Tournament Champions fell to No. 1 North Carolina, 4-0, Friday evening at the USTA National Campus. Georgia ends the season with a 26-5 overall record, while UNC improves to 34-1.
Wallace, who announced earlier this month he will retire at the end of the 2022-23 season, wraps up his head coaching career with an overall record of 818-199 (.804). As the only women's tennis head coach to be named National Coach of the Year on four occasions, Wallace led Georgia to six national championships, 14 NCAA semifinals appearances and 20 Southeastern Conference titles.
While the team season is officially over for the conference, the NCAA singles and doubles tournaments begin on Monday, May 22. Draws will be announced over the weekend.
