EMORY TOTAL TENNIS CAMP WITH COACH AMY BRYANT

Director Amy Bryant

Amy Bryant is the director and founder of Bryant Camps, LLC which operates year-round and summer camp instruction for local youth. Her Emory Total Tennis Camp opened its doors 15 years ago.  Sessions average 150 children per week, 10% of whom are on scholarship. 

Amy Bryant is the fifth person and first female in NCAA history, in any division, to win the national team championship as a coach and player. She did the former in 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2014 and 2016 and the latter as the No. 1 singles and doubles player on Emory's 1996 national championship team.

Bryant, a former All-American, assumed the head coaching duties in 2000. In her 19 seasons, the Eagles have compiled a 382-96 record (.803 win percentage) with 18 appearances in the NCAA national quarterfinals, 13 appearances in the NCAA team championship finals. Her teams have won a total of 6 NCAA Division III team national championships.

She has coached individual players to six NCAA Division III Singles Championships (Mary Ellen Gordon in 2003 and 2004, Lorne McManigle in 2009, Gabrielle Clark in 2012 and 2014, and Ysabel Gonzalez-Rico in 2019) and a doubles pairing to four consecutive NCAA national titles (2001-04). 

Bryant's players have won a total of 89 All-America awards and 13 conference Most Valuable Player honors.

Bryant was selected the National Division III Coach of the Year by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association in 2003, and the ITA regional Division III Coach of the Year in 2002, 2003, 2004, 2011 and 2016. She and her assistants have been honored 13 times as the conference Coaching Staff of the Year by the University Athletic Association, most recently in 2018.

During the 2019 season, Bryant and her Eagles advanced to the NCAA Semifinals for the 11th consecutive season and 20th time overall before bowing out to eventual national champion Wesleyan (CT), 5-4. At the NCAA Individual Championships, Bryant oversaw the program's sixth singles national champion as Gonzalez-Rico completed her dominating run through the Division III field, culminating with a straight set win over Wesleyan's Venia Yeung in the championship match. In addition, Bryant reached the 400-win milestone in the Eagles' second round match, a 5-0 decision over North Carolina Wesleyan. The Eagles finished the 2019 season with a 20-4 overall record, the team's 10th 20-win campaign during Bryant's tenure, and captured the UAA Championship for the seventh consecutive year.

In 2016, Bryant guided the Eagles to their seventh National Championship in program history and the second in three years, defeating Williams College 5-4 in title match. Emory finished the season with 28 victories, tying the school record for most wins in a single season, going 28-5 overall with a 22-1 mark against Division III opponents. 

In 2014 she led the Eagles to the program's sixth NCAA Division III Championship in 2014, claiming her 300th career victory in the title match with a 5-1 win over Amherst College on May 21st. 

In 2012, Bryant coached Gabrielle Clark as she became the first African American woman to win an NCAA Singles Championship at any Division (I, II or III). 

Her 2006 squad became the first Division III team ever to win a fourth consecutive national championship. To claim the championship they had to avenge three losses suffered to teams in regular season play. 

In 2005, her team became the first Division III team ever to win a third consecutive national championship, accomplishing the feat despite replacing three players in the singles lineup with freshmen.

Her 2004 squad became the first to repeat as unofficial "triple crown" winners by capturing the NCAA team, singles and doubles championships. It was an all-Emory final in both the NCAA singles and doubles championships. The squad compiled a 24-1 dual-match record, losing only to the eventual NAIA national champion.

Her 2003 squad became the second in Division III women's tennis history to achieve the unofficial "triple crown" by winning the NCAA team, singles and doubles championships. The squad compiled a 24-1 dual-match record, losing only to an NCAA Division II school.

Bryant, a 1996 Emory graduate, was the first women's tennis player in school history to earn All-America honors in both singles and doubles. She was the runner-up in the NCAA national singles championship her junior season and teamed up to reach the semifinals of the NCAA doubles championship her senior year.

At the time of her graduation, Bryant ranked fifth on the school's all-time list with 76 career singles victories and fifth in career double victories with 66. She compiled a 24-4 singles record her junior season and was selected the conference's Most Valuable Player her senior year. All four years, Bryant made the all-conference first team in singles and doubles.

She also was a standout in soccer where she twice made the all-region team. Though Bryant only played three seasons of soccer, she graduated with the school record for career goals and points. She was a two-time female winner of the school's Bridges Award as its outstanding all-around athlete and won the McCord Award her junior year for outstanding individual athletic achievement.

Bryant was inducted into the Emory Sports Hall of Fame in 2001. She resides in the Atlanta area with her husband, Wes, and sons, Kimball and Miles.
