September 24, 2020 | isuyyvzl | No Comments

first_imgForty-two year old Mike Bostic is retiring as the tennis coach for Carmel High School.  In his 8 years as a tennis coach at Carmel, his boys team won 5 state titles and the girls team 3.  The girls team did this in the last 4 years.  On their run to the state championship game this year they went 39-1 in their matches, including a 5-0 state title over Munster.In his 8 years at the helm of the Greyhounds, his teams were 181-2.  You might ask why a 42-year old with such a record would be retiring.  He has 2 young sons and he wants to spend time with them.  From another point of view, what does he have to prove?  Good luck, Mike, in your retirement from tennis.  Oh, by the way, most of the girls team is back for next year.last_img
