CCHS tennis coach named High School Coach of the Year

CCHS Boys' Tennis Coach Art QuinnArt Quinn, boys’ tennis coach at Cherry Creek High School, has been named 2017 High School Coach of the Year by Tennis Industry Magazine.

Quinn, a former varsity tennis player, has coached the CCHS boys’ tennis team for the past 12 years. In fact, he has never coached at another high school.  Under Quinn’s leadership, the CCHS tennis program has established a remarkable record and tradition of excellence. During Quinn’s tenure, the team has won ten 5A State Championships and players have earned 78 individual or doubles state titles.

Cherry Creek, which is the largest high school in the state of Colorado with more than 3,600 students, often has as many as 225 players try out for and stay involved in the tennis team, making it one of the largest no-cut programs in the state.

“We are a challenge-match-driven team. Those who are willing to put in the time will get to play,” Quinn said during an interview with Tennis Industry Magazine. “We strive for excellence and for well-rounded participants, which is a tribute to their parents and other coaches, as well.”

Fritz Garger, Colorado Executive Director for the U.S. Tennis Association, told Tennis Industry Magazine that Quinn’s commitment to the sport of tennis and tennis players extends far beyond Cherry Creek High School.

“It takes a lot of passion and dedication to make all the pieces work,” Garger said. “In addition to running such an impressive program, Art is supportive of Colorado tennis in general and steps up time and again to help.”

Quinn is one of 24 people or organizations honored as 2017 Champions of Tennis by Tennis Industry Magazine.
