Copiah-Lincoln Community College has named Tremont native Dana Hale as the new head coach of the men’s and women’s tennis teams.
The school made the announcement last week in Wesson.
Hale will also be an instructor and chair of the Health, Physical Education and Recreation division.
Hale played basketball, softball and tennis at Itawamba Community College. After graduating with her associate’s degree, Hale earned a bachelor’s in coaching and sports administration at the University of Southern Mississippi, and then received her master’s in physical education at Mississippi State University.
“I am very excited for this opportunity at Co-Lin,” Hale said. “I’m looking forward to building on the success of our women’s program after winning the MACJC State Championship this year and continuing the winning tradition of the men’s program. With the upgrades to the facilities on the horizon with the Back The Pack capital campaign and my excitement to hit the road recruiting, it is an exciting time for the program.”
Hale has worked in an administrative role at the Mississippi Department of Education and worked in sports medicine and athletic training at both St. Dominic Hospital and the North Mississippi Medical Center. She has also been involved for several years in the Amateur Athletic Union, or AAU, basketball as both a coach and player.
