Stacie Carpenter

Head Varsity Coach

This is my 6th year coaching girls tennis at Linn-Mar.  I was an assistant the first year with the varsity team.   I played tennis and graduated from a high school in Willmar, MN.  I qualified for the state tennis tournament all 4 years, and was a semi-finalist in singles my senior year.  I went on to play at Luther College in the top 4 singles and doubles positions.  While at Luther, I also taught tennis camps.  I graduated from Luther in 1990 with a degree in Education with an emphasis in Health and Physical Education.  I have been playing USTA tennis for the last 12 years and have enjoyed going to sectional and district tournaments.  I have also been to the National Tournament for Mixed Doubles.  I am looking forward to working with the Varsity girls and hope we have a positive and winning season!  GO LINN-MAR!
