(Carlisle, Pa.) - Dickinson College Director of Athletics, Les Poolman, announced the hiring of recent graduate David London '12 as the new head coach of men's and women's tennis. London earned four letters as a member of the Dickinson men's tennis program and was a three-year letter-winner in football.
He earned a B.A. in environmental studies while minoring in economics at Dickinson. He has worked at the Bethesda Country Club, supervising junior clinics and providing lessons to members. In addition, he has served as a teaching assistant at his alma mater, the Maret School, in Washington, D.C.
London closed out his football career with a great senior season, earning the starting role as the Red Devil place-kicker and punter last fall. He converted 9-of-12 field-goals with two of his three misses coming from 47 and 55 yards out. He finished with a career-long of 47 yards, adding 16 extra-points last season. In tennis, London posted a 10-4 record in doubles and a 9-6 mark in singles as a senior.
London will oversee both the men's and women's programs as they challenge for a spot in the Centennial Conference playoffs and look to compete for conference titles. The Red Devil women had a record-setting year in 2012, finishing 15-4 overall to tie the school record for wins in a season. They finished second in the conference standings and won nine of their final 10 matches to close out the regular season last spring.
