HEAD COACH: NICHOLAS LEWIS
Nick Lewis comes to us from the International School in Dallas. He began playing tennis at a very young age. And has not stopped since. While he had many memorable individual moments playing nationally in USTA events, his most meaningful tennis experiences come from being part of a team. His high school tennis team was one of the best in the state of Ohio. During his senior year, he won the OHSAA State Doubles title. After high school, he attended Davidson College, a small, liberal arts school that competed in a Division 1 Conference. While it was extremely competitive and difficult, he had an amazing team. Hard working. Fun. Lively. Dynamic. And more. They remain his closest friends to this day. Coach Lewis learned so much from his college coach and mentor Jeff Frank, a man who led the Davidson Wildcats for over 30 years. A true legend. Coach Frank inspired his team to be unified and invested in the sport and in each other.
For the past 10 years, Coach Lewis has tried to mirror that very atmosphere with the teams he has coached. He strives to create an inclusive environment where players are pushed to learn, to improve, and to care about each other. And while he wants the team to work hard, Coach Lewis also loves to have fun. A vital component of a healthy life.
Nick Lewis just recently moved to San Francisco with his wife and his energetic dog, Huxley. He teaches IB English and Theory of Knowledge at International High School as well.
Regarding the next school year and athletic competition, we have been following the California Interscholastic Federation press release announcing new dates for sports seasons, and we are working with the North Coast Section and Bay Area Conference to introduce a plan for a complete sports offering for student-athletes WHEN THIS IS PERMITTED.
While we are still working out details, we know that we will not be starting a traditional fall season on August 10th, as originally planned. Our Athletic Department is working with coaches to hold regular, synchronized workouts and team meetings for our student-athletes when school begins in late August.
More information will be available in mid-August, and we encourage all students interested in participating in athletics to complete their required yearly physical. When we are able to compete again, that will be required. More information will be directly communicated from our Athletic Department, but in the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact Director of High School Athletics, Sara Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
