Head Coach Hall-Holt Inducted into Hometown's Hall of Fame

Aug. 26, 2010


Kansas head tennis coach Amy Hall-Holt was inducted into the Henderson County (Ky.) Sports Hall of Fame over the weekend. Hall-Holt, along with the other 2010 inductees, were honored at halftime of the Henderson County High School football game Friday, Aug. 20, and was recently featured in the Henderson Courier Press.

An alumnus of Henderson County High School, Hall-Holt was recognized for efforts as a two-sport athlete for the Colonels. The seventh-year head coach was a standout athlete during her prep career, playing on the varsity tennis team for six years and was a four-year varsity basketball player.

Hall-Holt has been with KU for 15 years, and was handed the head coaching reigns in 2004. Under the guidance of Hall-Holt, six Jayhawks have garnered all-Big 12 Conference accolades and her teams have thrived academically. In just her second year as head coach at KU, the tennis team was recognized for having the highest overall GPA of all of Kansas’ athletic teams. Three of Hall-Holt’s squads have also been named ITA All-Academic Teams, with the third award coming just this year.
