Head Tennis Coach Zach Frisch announces his retirement
Here is his letter to tennis players and their families
Dear members of the tennis program
I am announcing my retirement as the Rockhurst High School Varsity Tennis Coach. My experience as coach has been one of the most amazing opportunities to give back to the school that has had such a profound impact on me. Although I am a lifelong tennis player and love coaching, the relationships I have made with the players, families, coaches, and the Rockhurst community have been the most significant part of my coaching experience.
First, I want to thank Rockhurst for trusting and supporting me as the tennis coach. The support from the Rockhurst athletic department and administration has been over the top. Experiencing this support firsthand has further provided that Rockhurst is a world class institution that truly stands behind its mission of building “men for others.” Attending Rockhurst as a student and working at Rockhurst as a coach, I have been blessed to be part of this amazing community.
Secondly, I want to thank the families of the players for their trust and support. I have made lifelong friends with many of the families and appreciate all the dedication they have had to the tennis program and development of their young men.
Finally, I want to thank all the past and present players that I have coached. Your hard work and dedication is inspiring. Your camaraderie and enthusiasm day in and day out has made my time coaching one of the most memorable experiences of my life. My retirement is bitter sweet. Bitter in that I will no longer be serving as the varsity tennis coach, but sweet because of all the memories and relationships I have made along the way. Serving as the tennis coach has been one of my most proud honors. It was truly an honor to coach at an institution that has given so much to me. As I begin the next chapter in my life, I am excited for the continued success and progress of the tennis program, Rockhurst High School, and the development of young men.
On behalf of the athletic department and Rockhurst High School, we thank Coach Frisch for all he has done for his alma mater and wish him nothing but the best.
