Cal State LA builds for the future

With a sprawling new tennis facility on the way for Cal State Los Angeles, the Division II Golden Eagles are looking to build their program and recapture the magic that saw the women’s squad nationally ranked as high as seventh in the early ‘90s and 15th at the end of 2005.

After a strong performance throughout 2016-17, Cal State LA dropped out of national rankings this past season after injuries and setbacks stalled the program’s momentum. Losing four seniors coming into last season, the Golden Eagles bid farewell to three more seniors last month, and both veteran head coach Sandy Kriezel and assistant coach Richard Gallien are eager to provide opportunities for young players seeking a Division II scholar athlete experience.

Speaking recently with Gallien, himself a 5-time PAC-12 Coach of the Year, the team’s assistant coach is eager to extend scholarship offers to incoming student athletes. “At the moment our focus is especially young women from Southern California,” Gallien said. “We are able to offer scholarships that can greatly help a young student athlete realize their academic and athletic dreams.”

The most recent roster reflected a notably international flair, with players hailing from Russia, Peru, Canada, and Switzerland. American tennis legend Billie Jean King attended the school from 1961 to 1964, while Hall of Famer Rosie Casals has been a longtime supporter of the program.

In addition to the valuable scholarship opportunities, Cal State will christen a brand new tennis facility in coming years. This summer, construction began on new facility that will house the Golden Eagles, as well as tennis camps and special events.
