ALMONT — Almont's Dean Sousanis was one of eight Division 4 tennis coaches statewide named as Regional Coach of The Year recently.
Sousanis earned the accolades for Region 28.
Aaron Badger (Bridge-man), Ken Bizzell (Kala-mazoo Christian), Eric Gajar (Ann Arbor Greenhills), Ron Landfair (Lansing Catholic), Erin Fouty (Grand Rapids Northpointe Christian) and Gerry Mayes (Elk Rapids) were the other honorees.
This past spring, Sousanis directed the Almont tennis team to a 5-0-1 Blue Water Area Conference dual match mark (matching Armada for the league's best showing); a second at the Blue Water Area Conference Tournament; a tie for second with Armada at a region his school hosted; and a sixth-place finish at the state finals in Kalamazoo.
