Patric Hynes Resigns As Director Of Tennis Operations
"We've had seven great years here and I'm sad to leave behind two great teams and a wonderful staff and administration at PC," said Hynes. "I'm truly thankful for the opportunity that I've had."
"It's a big loss and we are sad to see him go," Reese said. "Patric has done great work here and we wish him the best."
Patric Hynes just completed his third season as the Director of Tennis Operations at Presbyterian College and the head of both the men's and women's programs, and his seventh overall with PC.
This past season Hynes led the men's tennis team to a Division I era-best 11-14 record, while also taking the women's team to a 9-13 mark, its highest in PC's Division I history as well.
In 2010 Hynes helped both squads increase their win totals from the previous season, and guided the women's team to its first victory over a Big South Conference opponent since the move to Division I with a 4-3 win over Liberty.
In 2009, Hynes' men's squad won its first-ever match over a Division I program - a 6-1 victory over Kennesaw State on Feb. 6.
As the men's head coach, Hynes guided the program into Division I during the 2008 season and posted a 4-12 mark. The Blue Hose earned their first victory as a Division I program over North Greenville on Feb. 9, 2008.
In 2007, Hynes and the Blue Hose, as a NCAA Division II member, parlayed an undefeated conference record into a No. 1 seed in the South Atlantic Conference, picking up another league championship along the way. PC concluded the season ranked No. 35 nationally, which marked the end of their Division II play. In the classroom, the team was equally impressive as three student-athletes were named ITA Scholar-Athletes and five were named to the SAC Honor Roll for academic excellence.
In 2006 Hynes took his team to its third regular-season conference title in four seasons, ending conference play with an undefeated mark and capturing its third consecutive postseason title in as many years. PC earned the league's automatic bid to the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Tournament and earned a No. 16 national ranking. For his efforts on the court, Hynes was named the SAC Men's Tennis Coach of the Year.
In 2005, Hynes led the Blue Hose to a 13-9 overall record, the SAC tournament title and a runner-up spot during the conference's regular season. The team earned a spot to the NCAA Southeast Regional Tournament.
Hynes came to PC from Lees-McRae in Banner Elk, N.C., where he spent the previous season as both the men's and women's head tennis coach.
During his tenure as a college coach, Hynes has coached three conference championship winning teams, 18 ITA Scholar Athletes and three ITA All-American teams. He has coached 18 all-conference student-athletes, three Freshmen-of-the-Years and three Players-of-the-Years.
