DENVER - After four years of serving as assistant coach for the University of Denver women's tennis team, David Loewenthal has earned a promotion to associate head coach, head coach Christian Thompson announced on Friday.
"David has been a true asset to our program," said Thompson. "He has played an integral role in all of our accomplishments over the past four seasons including our successful run last season winning our league tournament, as well as a round in the NCAA tournament. He also helped in producing our first ITA All-American doubles team."
Loewenthal joined the DU staff in August 2013 after serving seven years as a private tennis coach in New Jersey. Before coaching, Loewenthal travelled for two years with the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) Tour, reaching as high as No. 692 in the ATP world ranking.
"I feel very blessed and grateful to coach alongside Christian," said Loewnthal. "She's one of the best coaches and managers in the game and it's a real honor and a privilege to be at DU."
The New Jersey native played at Wake Forest University from 2000-2004 and was ranked as high as No. 24 in singles and No. 23 in doubles. Loewenthal was an ACC singles champion, two-time All-ACC pick, an NCAA Singles participant and was a one-time ACC Player of the week.
"David is extremely deserving of this promotion and I am very fortunate to have the staff I have with both he and Karen Clark," added Thompson. "We are excited to start season five together in a few shorts days."
