Tom Kramer 
Coach, South Whidbey High School (formerly Langley High School), 1978-2011

Tom, a History teacher at Langley High School (now known as South Whidbey High School) took on the role of tennis coach when the former school principal and tennis coach was hired for a different job away from South Whidbey. That first season, over 30 years ago, he barely filled the roster. After that first year, his programs would gain success and numbers. A few years later, he began coaching the boys tennis team also. He guided the tennis program from a small 1A program up to a 3A team in the early 2000s and back to 2A and 1A before he resigned.

Tom coached his own daughter to the first ever state singles title as a freshman at South Whidbey HS. His daughter, who now coaches the tennis program at South Whidbey, is following in her father’s footsteps.
Despite having no A classification for district or state from 1978 to 1984, Tom coached his tennis teams to 23 District Championships, 18 top-six finishes at State or better, 11 individual State Championships, and six team State Championships (1985-2011). He was named one of the Everett Herald All Sports top ten coaches of the decade (2000-2009). He was inducted into the South Whidbey High School Coaches Hall of Fame (2013). In the fall of 2013, he was also awarded a Community Champion by the U.S. Tennis Association.
