Williamsburg, Va. - For the fourth time in the last five years, William and Mary head men's tennis coach Peter Daub has been selected to coach some of the top tennis prospects in the country. Daub was named the Mid-Atlantic Section coach for the USTA National Team Boys 18 Championships, July 28-31, in Urbana, Ill.

The 2012 team event will feature teams comprised of players from each of the USTA's 17 Sections. Each Section chooses players from its region to represent the Section and compete for the right to be called the USTA's top Section. Teams are entered into a Compass Draw and play a college dual match format for each match consisting of three doubles matches and six singles matches. A Section will earn one team point per singles match win and one point for winning two of three doubles matches. The first team to four points wins the match and advances to compete in the next round. In 2008 and 2009, Daub led the Mid-Atlantic to a 3-1 ledgers at the USTA National Team Championships, formerly USTA Junior Davis Cup. The USTA Sportsmanship Award for the event was also presented to the Mid-Atlantic region in 2009.

Daub recently completed his 19th season at the College. The three-time CAA Coach of the Year owns 491 career victories, including 280 with the Green and Gold. In 2011-12, Jamie Whiteford became the first Tribe singles player to win the ITA Atlantic Region Singles Championship and ascended as high as No. 34 nationally under Daub's direction. Whiteford was selected to the NCAA Singles Championship, giving W&M a representative on eight occasions at the NCAA Individual Championships over the last nine years.
