PROVIDENCE, RI - Cecily Dubusker joins the Brown tennis staff after a successful stint as the assistant at the University of Missouri. In 2003, her first full year of coaching, the Tigers had their most successful season in school history, where they reached a program-high national ranking of #34, completed a regular season record of 15-9 in the highly competitive Big XII conference, and received their first berth into the NCAA team tournament. Gaining valuable experience while working with some of the best talent in the country, Dubusker formulated a coaching method that focused on mental toughness and court awareness.
As a player, Dubusker knew no less success. She was the top player at Drake University for four years, shattering school records for singles and doubles wins. She received only the second national ranking in school history, topping out at #83 during her senior campaign. She was All-Missouri Valley Conference during each of her four years at Drake, and led the Bulldogs to two NCAA team appearances in 1999 and 2000. Also an exceptional student, Dubusker graduated magna cum laude with a degree in magazine journalism in 2002.
