The United States Tennis Association Eastern/Long Island Region has selected William Floyd High School as the recipient of this year’s Outdoor Tennis Site of the Year Award, which recognizes the commitment William Floyd has shown in developing and promoting youth and amateur tennis by hosting the Suffolk County Championships for the past five years. William Floyd athletic director Mark Mensch received the award at the 28th annual USTA Eastern/Long Island Awards Dinner earlier this May.
This award is one of many accolades the William Floyd tennis program has achieved over the past several years. Under the leadership of two-time USTA Coach of the Year Dave Pia, William Floyd tennis program achievements include the girls varsity team winning the Suffolk County Championship in 2014, six consecutive Big Four Championships and reaching the playoffs for 15 consecutive seasons. The boys varsity team has also qualified for the playoffs six of the past seven years.
