One of the fiercest competitors in UB tennis history, Smaranda Stan begins her first season as assistant coach after serving as a volunteer assistant in 2011-12. Stan will always be remembered as the Most Valuable Player at the 2008 Mid-American Conference Championships.
In addition to serving as volunteer last season, Stan worked as a tennis pro at the Miller Tennis Center.
In her Buffalo career she is third in school history in singles wins and 10th in doubles victories. During her junior season, Stan won all three clinching points as she led the Bulls to their first Mid-American Conference Championship and UB’s only NCAA Tournament appearance.
