Rowland Hall’s boys tennis program is truly a powerhouse. With 17 state and 18 region championships, the program has dominated the competition for decades.
Coaching staff teaches players important life lessons that will stay with them beyond graduation, including the value of hard work, commitment to their team, and perseverance. As a program, we focus on developing strong student-athletes who are successful not only on the court but also in the classroom.
On the court, players are taught the fundamentals of the game, along with how to be mentally strong in a competitive environment. We focus on the little things that make all the difference between a good player and an exceptional one.
Meet the Coach
Rowland Hall's boys tennis team is coached by one of the winningest coaches in Utah High School Activities Association history, Rich Francey. After 10 state championships with the team between 1991 and 2004, Rich moved to Southern California, where he worked for some of the biggest names in tennis, including Prince, Babolat, and Nike. After returning to Utah, Rich resumed his coaching role at Rowland Hall, seeking to add to his already impressive coaching record.
Meet Our Alums
Having won the second highest number of state championships in Utah, it's no surprise that some of our boys tennis players have gone on to play at the next level. Meet them, as well as the other alums who have competed beyond Rowland Hall.
Winged Lion Legacy
As the winningest program in Rowland Hall history, there is a lot to reflect on: from the first interscholastic boys tennis team in 1962 to the team's seven consecutive state championships between 1990 and 1996, and their many tournament runs in the 2000s and 2010s. Take a look back at the history of boys tennis at Rowland Hall.
