Conference Highlights
Grinnell won its eighth-straight Midwest Conference title during the spring of 2011. The crown marked the Pioneer's 9th title in the past 10 years. In the league's flighted tournament -- No. 1-6 singles and No. 1-3 doubles -- Grinnell individuals claimed championships in 7 of 9 positions.
Post Season Highlights
For the fifth-straight year Grinnell advanced to the NCAA Division III Regional Team Tournament in May of 2011. With a thrilling 5-3 victory over UW Eau Claire in the first round of the tournament, the Pioneers found themselves in the Round of 32 against U of Chicago, the No. 12 team in the country. Grinnell posed a serious threat to the Maroons by winning 2 of 3 doubles, however, Chicago came back to post a 5-2 victory. During five years of NCAA national tournament play, the Pioneers have advanced to the round of 32 three times.
Individual Achievements
During the past 10 years, Grinnell has sent players to the NCAA individual national tournament five times.

In 2009 Dan LaFountaine and Nate Fox represented the school in doubles and they advanced to the quarter finals before losing to the tournament's runner-up pair from Bowdoin. Juan Carlos Perez advanced in singles three successive seasons and he was named All-American in 2010 by finishing the season with a No. 20 national ranking.
