Tarleton State University has hired a new women’s tennis coach for the 2019-2020 season. Elianna Douglas-Miron will begin her first season as the women’s tennis coach this Fall semester.
Douglas-Miron’s biography on the Tarleton Athletic website states that she spent the previous two seasons as the graduate assistance coach for Tarleton and the team won 22 matches with Douglas-Miron on staff.
According to Tarleton Atheltics, Douglas-Miron is originally from Ottawa, Canada, and worked as a “Communication Specialist with Volt Athletics, a Seattle-based strength and conditioning online platform.”
She played tennis at University of Washington, where she achieved a career high of 99 wins.
She earned her bachelor’s degree in History and Communication at the university in 2016. She earned honorable mention titles her junior and senior year while playing on the tennis team. She recently earned her master’s degree in Kinesiology from Tarleton.
She is starting off on the next path in her career as the 12th head coach of the Tarleton’s Women’s Tennis program.
Alicia Barbaroux, a senior on the tennis team, said, “I think Elianna is ready to be the head coach. I’m a senior but she is not new for me. She was the graduate assistant coach for 2 years so I know how she works and what she is expecting from us. She will be a great coach, no doubt.”
Barbaroux has high hopes for Douglas-Miron’s first season as head coach.
“For this season I hope we will go as far as we can and win a lot of matches. It’s my last season and of course I would like it to be the best so I hope we’ll have great times and wins with the team and coach,” she stated.
