Adams to repeat as USTA president

September 29, 2016

Immediately after the US Open, USTA First Vice President Andy Andrews notified the USTA Nominating Committee that, for personal reasons, he was declining the nomination for USTA president for the 2017-2018 term.

The Nominating Committee “determined it to be in the best interest of the organization to nominate Katrina Adams to serve an unprecedented second consecutive term as USTA President,” according to a letter sent to the “USTA Family” on Sept. 16 by Committee Chair Charlotte Johnson. The committee also recognized that, as a departure from USTA tradition, “we do not intend for it to have precedential value.”

The full slate nominated for the 2017-2018 term (with USTA section affiliation) is:

President: Katrina Adams (Eastern); First V.P.: Patrick Galbraith (PNW); VP: Joan Baker (Northern); VP: Mark Ein (Mid-Atlantic); Sec-Treas.: Thomas Ho (Texas).

Directors at Large: Fabrizio Alcobe-Fierro (Florida), Jeffrey Baill (Northern), Laura Canfield (Middle States), Dr. Brian Hainline (Midwest), Michael McNulty (Southern), Andrew Valdez (Intermountain).

Elite Athletes: Lauren Barnikow (Northern Calif.), Liezel Huber (Texas), Brian Vahaly (Mid-Atlantic).
