Nov. 6, 2003
SEATTLE - Washington women's tennis coach Patty Fendick McCain will be inducted into Stanford University's Athletic Hall of Fame, Friday, Nov. 7. McCain, a four-time All-American and two-time NCAA singles champion, is one of 10 former Cardinal greats to be honored this weekend.
The Hall of Fame Class of 2003 will be formally inducted Fri., Nov. 7 and will also be honored during halftime of the Stanford-Arizona State football game on Sat., Nov. 8. Also included in this year's class will be Don Bunce (football), Dante Dettamanti (men's water polo), Steve Dils (football), Jenna Johnson-Yonker (women's swimming), Alan Mouchawar (men's water polo), John Revelli (men's basketball), Larry Reynolds (baseball), Kim Schnurpfeil (women's track/cross country) and Teresa Smith (women's volleyball).
McCain, currently in her seventh season at the helm of the Husky women's tennis program, is the only Stanford player (men's or women's) to win back-to-back NCAA Singles titles. She led Stanford to three NCAA Team Championships and a combined record of 95-7 (.931) during her tenure. The 1987 Pac-10 Southern Division Player of the Year, she posted a career dual singles record of 77-11 (.875). McCain competed for the Cardinal from 1984-87.
McCain played professionally on the WTP tour from 1987 to 1995 and was ranked as high as fourth in the world in doubles (best ever by a Stanford player) and 19th in singles. She won 26 doubles titles and three singles championships and was a Grand Slam doubles semifinalist, finalist or champion nine times.
McCain's success on the court translated to success as a coach, as she has led the Huskies to the NCAA Tournament in each of her six seasons in Seattle. McCain has twice been named Pac-10 Coach of the Year, in 2001 and 2003. She was also named the 2001 Northwest Region Coach of the Year. Last year, McCain led the Huskies to their highest final national ranking in school history (sixth). Her 2001 squad advanced as far as the NCAA Quarterfinals, the best ever NCAA Championship finish for a Husky women's team.
