Bulldogs add to coaching depth

The Fresno State women’s tennis coaching staff was bolstered on Friday, as head coach Ric Motera announced that former Valley high school star Patrick Huls will join the program as a volunteer assistant coach, according to a Fresno State Athletics news release.

Huls is coming off a successful run at the 2018 United States Tennis Association Nationals, leading the Fig Garden Swim and Racquet Club’s men’s 4.5 team to a third-place finish.

But the success started nearly a decade ago for the Clovis West alumnus.

Huls accumulated a lengthy resume during his time at Clovis West, being chosen as a two-time All-Bee First Team selection in 2012 and 2013, while being named Clovis West’s “Dream Team Captain”.

At Clovis West, Huls led the Golden Eagles to the 2013 Tri-River Athletic Conference doubles championship and was a three-time Valley champion from 2011 to 2013, amassing a total singles regular season record of 30-4 over his three-year varsity career.

According to a quote from Fresno State Athletics, Mortera is excited to add Huls to his coaching staff.

“Patrick is a terrific addition to our staff,”Mortera said. “His passion for Fresno State and love of the game is going to have a very positive impact on our young team. We are excited to have him join us.”
