After three years as the head coach of the Westmont Women’s Tennis Team, Kendyll McManigal has announced her resignation. McManigal posted a record of 37-30 and has taken the program to the second round of the NAIA National Championship Tournament in each of the three years she has been head coach.

“Under Kendyll’s leadership the Women’s Tennis Program has gained national prominence – as they have competed in the national tournament for each of the three years she has been head coach,” said athletic director Dave Odell. “The program has also benefited from the tough schedule that Kendyll has had our teams play – a schedule consisting of matches against top caliber NCAA Division I, II, and III teams.”

McManigal’s involvement with Westmont began in 2001 when she played tennis for the Warriors from 2001-2004, under Coach Kathy LaSage. During her time as a player, McManigal played at number one singles for three out of her four years, advanced to the NAIA National Tournament three times and was named to the All-GSAC team three times.

After a highly successful season that included a GSAC regular season championship as well as a GSAC Tournament Championship, #7 Westmont Women’s Tennis (10-8) fell to #10 William Woods (19-2) in the second round of the NAIA Women’s Tennis National Tournament by a score of 3-5.

Today’s loss hurts,” said head coach Kendyll McManigal. “You always know in post season that it could be your last match but I was just hoping it wasn’t today. We were very close today and it was an emotional loss for me as this great season came to end sooner than I hoped, and for the seniors who were playing their last match.”

“William Woods came out with nothing to lose and it showed – they played well,” explained McManigal. “We went down 1-2 after doubles which is never ideal. The goal is always 2-1, but a big win at #1 doubles kept us from going down 0-3. Lauren and Isabel started setting each other up more and then Lauren took over at that the net which just shut the other team down.”

Earlier this season, seventh ranked Westmont Women’s Tennis became the Golden State Athletic Conference Regular season co-champions, alongside Arizona Christian. Today, the Warriors (10-7) stand alone as the GSAC Tournament Champions, after defeating the Firestorm (17-4) by a decisive score of 5-0.

“We are so excited about this win,” shared head coach Kendyll McManigal. “It was a team effort and everyone contributed. From the start we had great energy and really got some momentum.”

The Warriors harnessed momentum early on when they swept in doubles 3-0.

“Going up 3-0 after doubles was so pivotal,” continued McManigal. “Honesty I don’t think against a top team or rival we have ever done that. We strive for going up 2-1 and don’t always get two doubles points so three was extra special. It wasn’t easy. But the girls rallied and gained momentum when they saw their teammates winning.”
