Dawn Buth is in her first year as head coach for the GW women's tennis program.
Buth came to GW from the University of Pennsylvania where she served as assistant coach last season. She helped guide the Quakers to a 15-5 overall record and a 5-2 mark in the Ivy League. Penn battled four nationally ranked opponents in dual matches, defeating No. 51 Maryland and No. 31 Virginia Commonwealth en route to a No. 28 ranking in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) polls in March.
The Wichita, KS, native also worked as an assistant tennis professional at the Gainesville (FL) Country Club during 2002-03 and played professionally from 1998-2001 when she achieved a WTA singles world ranking of No. 96.
A 2002 graduate of the University of Florida, Buth was a seven-time All-America selection and a key member of the Gators' 1996 and `98 NCAA championship teams. Her doubles team won NCAA titles in 1996 and `97. Buth was named the NCAA Rookie of the Year in 1995 and was nominated for the Honda-Broderick Award in 1996.
