TEMPE, Ariz. – Senior Mae Coyiuto was selected as the National ITA Arthur Ashe Leadership and Sportsmanship Award winner and assistant coach Andrew Cohn took home ITA Assistant Coach of the Year as announced by the ITA.
Cohn has now earned the National ITA Coach of the Year Award for the second time in the past three years (2015, 2017) as he helped lead the Sagehens to the Regional Finals this season where they fell to No. 1 seeded Claremont-Mudd-Scripps. Cohn has taken over as interim head coach twice during his tenure at Pomona-Pitzer and helped the Sagehens earn an ITA Indoor National Championship, SCIAC Championship and send multiple athletes to compete in the NCAA Doubles and Singles Tournaments.
Coyiuto has compiled a 63-26 career record, and played anywhere from No. 1 to 4 singles, and all three doubles positions. Coyiuto has a cumulative 11.785 GPA (on a 12.0 scale), has been a three-year team captain and been a vital member of the culture, leadership and success of the program despite battling injury after injury. Throughout her career, Coyiuto has found success on court, being regionally and/or nationally ranked in all four of her playing seasons. She began her career playing toward the top of the lineup at No. 2 as a freshman and line one singles as a sophomore before a torn labrum injury in her hip sidelined her for her third season. Coming back into the team, Coyiuto regained her form and has continued to find success and push our team to greater heights. Throughout her career, she has a 63-26 record against top national competition. Above all her on court accomplishments is the amount Coyiuto gives back to everyone she encounters.
