Karen Clark

• Between both men's and women's programs, Karen is the longest running volunteer tennis coach in Denver Tennis history, volunteering her time and effort for well over the last decade.

• Was amongst the best junior tennis players in the country and a professional tour prospect, once ranked in the top-20 in U.S. juniors, going on to become the top player on scholarship for the University of Maryland.

• As a certified PTR tennis professional, Karen has worked with top national juniors, eventually bringing her years of experience to the DU program where she's served not only as a volunteer assistant coach (now in her 10th year), but also as full time assistant coach for 2 years from 2007 to 2009 -- with the 2008 season still standing as the best season on record for the Lady Pioneers marked by a top-20 national ranking, and the program's first ever Division 1 NCAA tournament win.

• Karen and her husband Raoul, who played for ACC rival - University of Virginia, have two daughters and a son.

• Karen is incredibly engaged with local Denver community, and has been a tremendous liaison for our tennis teams working with local tennis clubs like the Denver Country Club, often acting a connector for our graduating student-athletes as they enter careers outside of tennis in the local community.
