In 2019 his men finished with a record of 15-5 earning their first ITA regional ranking in recent history. Perry was awarded Men’s ODAC Coach of the Year for the 2018-2019 season.
His men’s team men improved from a 5-17 record in 2017 to 13-8 in 2018. His women’s program also experienced major improvement during that span by going from a 2-15 record in 2017 to 13-9 in 2018. The men took 4th in the 2018 ODAC tournament, 4 spots ahead of their 8th place showing in 2017. In 2017 the women did not qualify for the tournament but reached the finals of the 2018 ODAC Championships.
In 2016 he led the VWU men’s tennis team to its first perfect record in league play (10-0) in his first year at the helm of the Marlins, including defeating ODAC power Washington and Lee University for the first time in school history. He was named ODAC Coach of the Year for his efforts that season.
A three-time Division III National Coach of the Year, Perry comes to Virginia Wesleyan from Longwood University where he was the head coach of the men’s tennis program. He coached the Lancers to a six-win improvement in just his first year with the team.
