Furman men's tennis coach Paul Scarpa surpassed a milestone on Friday, March 6th, becoming the sport's winningest coach in NCAA Division I history with his 820th victory. The Paladins defeated Yale, 6-1, at the Cullman-Heyman Tennis Center to give the coach of 45 years the all-time mark.

"This record is a great thing for our team and all the players who have been part of this program," said Scapa. "I am happy because it makes all those who have gone to Furman, tennis players or not, proud to be a part of history. Most of all, I'm glad we won. This was not an easy match but we played very hard. Yale is a great place to play with a tremendous tennis heritage."

Scarpa surpassed former University of Hawaii coach Jim Schwitters to take over the record. His 820 victories include 254 in the Southern Conference, where the Paladins have had 40 consecutive winning seasons.
