On August 1, Kelly Niznansky has been named Head Women’s Tennis Coach by Western Connecticut State University Director of Athletics Ed Farrington.
Niznansky fills the coaching position vacated when Stacy Slater resigned in May after five seasons at the Colonials’ helm. Slater compiled a 39-27 record and led WestConn to the NCAA Division III National Tournament in the spring of 2011 after capturing the Little East Conference Tournament title during the fall of 2010.
Niznansky comes to WestConn after stints as the Head Girl’s Tennis Coach at nearby Danbury High School (2010-11) and Weston High School (2003-04).
Since 2006, she has been the Coordinator of the Junior United States Tennis Association Team at Four Seasons Racquet Club in Wilton, Conn. For the past two summers, she has been the Head Tennis Pro at the Weston Field Club.
The Fairfield, Conn. native graduated with a degree in Human Resources from Lynn University, in Boca Raton, Fla. in 2003.
