STAFF DETAILS

Former Roadrunners All-American Josh Graetz took over as head coach of the MSU Denver men’s and women’s tennis programs in the fall of 2018 and immediately delivered, leading the women’s team to a third straight Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference regular season title in 2019.

The women compiled a 13-10 overall record and won all three of their RMAC regular-season duals before falling in the RMAC Tournament finals to Dixie State. This past year he coached the RMAC player of the year and Academic All-RMAC, the RMAC Co-Freshman of the year.

Meanwhile, the MSU Denver men went 9-8, and had a player win the ITA’s Regional Senior Player of the Year award.

A native of Albury, Australia, Graetz enjoyed a decorated career with Metropolitan State University of Denver tennis program from 2013 through 2018, racking up a number of accolades. Graetz was named the 2014 RMAC Freshman of the Year after a brilliant 2013-14 season in which he recorded a school-record 24 singles wins. He followed his incredible freshman season by surpassing 20 wins in both singles and doubles competition in 2014-15, earning All-RMAC First Team honors for singles and All-RMAC Second Team honors for doubles.

Over the course of his playing career at MSU Denver as 2-time RMAC Player of the Year Graetz compiled a 90-30 singles record, going 68-20 in No. 1 singles. He had an 83-36 mark in doubles play, going 70-25 in No. 1 doubles. He was undefeated in RMAC competition during his final two years as a Roadrunner, earning a whopping eight RMAC Player of the Week awards throughout his time wearing the Red and Blue. He is the Roadrunners’ all-time leader in singles wins and doubles wins.

He also received the prestigious RMAC Man of the Year award from the league office, an award that honors graduating student-athletes who have distinguished themselves throughout their college career in areas of academic achievement, athletics excellence, community service and leadership.
