In 11 seasons as the head women’s tennis coach at the University of Mary Washington, Patrick Catullo has led the Eagles back to greatness. The Eagles have dominated the Capital Athletic Conference dating back to the 1990s, and have advanced to more NCAA Championships than all but one school in all of NCAA Division III.
The Eagles have become more and more of a national championship-caliber team each year under Catullo’s tenure in Fredericksburg, and have posted a cumulative record of 175-70, including a mark of 167-62 over the past nine seasons. In 2015, he was named the ITA Regional Coach of the Year.
A Mary Washington alumnus, Catullo has led the team to 10 Capital Athletic Conference championships and 10 NCAA Tournament appearances after coaching for five years at Broward (Fla.) Community College. While at Broward, Catullo produced 30 state champions, 12 national champions, and 23 All-Americans. A two-time NJCAA National Coach of the Year, his Seahawk teams posted a 76-22 overall record, including a 43-1 conference mark.
Prior to his work at Broward CC, where he also worked as sports information director and assistant athletic coordinator, he served as an assistant coach at Flagler College and as a tennis pro at the ATP Country Club in Ponte Vedra, Fla. He is a member of the United States Professional Tennis Registry.
“There is a distinguished honor about the women’s team at Mary Washington, and a great tradition of success. I look forward to challenges as well as the successes that lay ahead for the UMW tennis team,” said Catullo, who with his wife, Linda, and two sons, Ryan and Chase, reside in Fredericksburg.
