Frostburg State University Tennis Center Court to Be Dedicated in Memory of Lonnie D. Athey
Frostburg State University will dedicate the Center Court of its newly refurbished tennis courts in the memory of former coach Lonnie D. Athey, on Saturday, April 6, at 12:30 p.m. The dedication will occur between the matches that the women’s and men’s tennis teams will play against Christopher Newport University.
Athey, who passed away in 2006, coached the FSU men’s team from 1989 to 2001, and the women’s team from 1997 to 2001. The men’s team had a 123-55 record during Athey’s tenure, including an undefeated season in 2001. He was named Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Coach of the Year in 2000 and 2001.
The dedication is made possible through the generosity of Chip Carr, a member of the FSU class of 1993, who wanted to honor his coach and mentor. Carr, Athey’s widow Paula, other members of the Athey family, friends, former players and coaches will be in attendance.
