NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Yale's Swensen-McMahon Head Coach of Women's Tennis, Danielle McNamara, was named to the ITA Board of Directors last week, one of seven new members appointed to the organization that acts as the governing body of college tennis.

McNamara is in her second stint as Yale's Swensen-McMahon Head Coach of Women's Tennis. In her first, she led Bulldogs to four Ivy League Championships, four NCAA Tournament appearances and four ECAC Indoor Team Championships in eight seasons and was named Wilson/ITA Northeast Region Coach of the Year twice in 2011 and 2013.

In her second stint, she has improved the team's record steadily over the past two years, improving by six wins over the past year this season and engineering top 25 recruiting classes over the past two seasons.

Created to support the ITA and college tennis, the Board of Directors is chaired by Jon Vegosen, and also features a number of prominent members of prestigious tennis programs around the country. Billy Pate, Princeton Head Men's Tennis Coach, is the only other member of the board associated with the Ivy League.
