Cowgirls Tennis Adds Assistant From Colorado State
LARAMIE -- Erica Medlin, a full-time assistant at Colorado State who played a part in the Rams tennis team putting together it's best season in more than a decade, is moving an hour north. Wyoming women's tennis coach Dean Closer on Tuesday announced the hiring of Medlin as an assistant for the Cowgirls.
“Erica was the first person I called when the job came open and I’m more than excited to have her here,” Clower said. “I have seen her grow as a coach over the past few years and feel she will make an immediate impact on the team and in the community. Erica has the drive and passion to coach at this level and I will lean on her for many things as our assistant.”
Medlin spent the last two seasons with CSU, also working as a club pro at the Fort Collins Country Club and a tennis coach at the Meadow Club of Southampton.
Prior to that, she was an assistant coach at Northern Arizona in Flagstaff, where she helped the Lumberjacks claim the 2016 Big Sky regular-season championship.
Medlin played tennis for two years at San Jose State, and then transfered to Northern Iowa for her junior and senior seasons. In 2015, she won Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year honors. She was two-time All-WAC at San Jose State.
A native of Hawaii, who grew up in Phoenix, Medlin graduated from Northern Iowa with a degree in movement and exercise science, and a minor in coaching. She received her masters in educational leadership during her time at Northern Arizona.
