High School Coach of the Year Award

Paul Lauterbach - Walworth, WI

Paul Lauterbach was named High School Coach of the Year for his efforts coaching boys and girls tennis at Lake Geneva Badger High School. For more than 30 years as coach, both the boys’ and girls’ teams have been contenders for the conference title, and in 2018, both teams were dominant. Each team won their conference tournament – the girls became the first team ever to win every tournament match – and both qualified for states. Seven of Lauterbach’s players from 2018 will or have gone on to play collegiate tennis from DIII to DI.
