Workman Waves Goodbye After Hall of Fame Career at Seward
05/22/2012

Darin Workman

After 14 years recruiting and coaching tennis players from all over the world on a tiny tennis complex in Southwest Kansas, Darin Workman just coached his last tennis tournament.  Workman's Saints backed up a 10th place NJCAA finish in 2011 with a 12th place finish last week in Plano, Texas.  Workman also coached the Seward women the week before in Tyler, Texas. 

The coach will continue as a music intructor at SCCC/ATS but says he will leave the tennis coaching duties with someone else to spend more time with his family.  His daughter Caitlin just finished her sophomore year at Seward.  Workman says he is also troubled by the fact that beginning next season, NJCAA tennis teams can only bring in two international men and two international women to the program making recruiting a much bigger headache. 

He says he was shocked when he was inducted into the JUCO Hall of Fame at the NJCAA Tournament.  But Workman's men's teams have won three straight academic national championships.
