Coaching Achievements
Springfield, Ohio — Wittenberg University Director of Athletics and Recreation Garnett Purnell announced that Justin Stuckey has been named the first-ever full-time men's and women's tennis coach in school history.

Stuckey comes to Wittenberg from nearby Wright State University, where he served as a graduate assistant for the men's and women's tennis teams during the 2007-08 school year. He graduated from Wright State with a master's in education in 2008, a year after earning his bachelor's in sports management from Johnson C. Smith University in Charlotte, N.C.

Among the coaches who have influenced Stuckey, who held the No. 1 16-and-under national ranking in the American Tennis Assocation in 2001, are Rachel Fair, Tony Pack and James Cuthbertson, who guided him during his collegiate career at Johnson C. Smith. Stuckey helped Johnson C. Smith to an NCAA Division II postseason berth in 2004 and four straight conference championships. Individually, Stuckey played both singles and doubles in the 2004 NCAA Division II Tournament.

Stuckey was a team captain three straight years and team MVP in 2006 and 2007 while compiling career conference records of 61-5 in doubles and 55-11 in singles at Johnson C. Smith. Along the way, he won two conference doubles titles and finished second two other years, to go along with one conference singles title and three conference singles runner-up finishes. Stuckey began his coaching path during his college career by teaching tennis camps for elementary and high school students

"I am very happy to be a part of the Wittenberg athletics family, and I am looking forward to heading up the men's and women's tennis programs," Stuckey said.

A native of Cincinnati, where he graduated from Moeller High School in 2003, Stuckey takes over a women's program that has posted a .500 or better record six consecutive years and has earned 21 All-North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) selections since 2001. The Tiger men have six winning seasons in the last nine years and 20 All-NCAC selections since 2001.
