Mariemont’s tennis coach Lane Merten remembers going into a room to meet her team’s parents and discuss the upcoming season.
Seven players usually make up a game for a club with three singles and two doubles. So the magical number of players for a high school coach is 14 – seven for college and junior college. When Merten came in, she saw a sea of parents – 31 children had signed up to play tennis.
She knew that Tracy Glassmeyer was the reason for the increased attendance.
Glassmeyer was a two-time state semi-finalist with Kettering Alter before moving to the University of Wisconsin, where she helped the Badgers win the Big 10 for the only time in program history en route to an Elite 8 berth. As a tennis professional who teaches around 70 to 80 athletes all year round, Glassmeyer serves as a kind of farm system for the Mariemont University program.
