Two VCU players, Olivier Tauma in 1997 and An- dersson in 1998, also reached the semifinals of the NCAA individual singles championship, and Andersson also won a pair of ITA grand slam singles events during his out- standing career as aRam.

Rowe Price National Clay Court Championship, the first leg of the collegiate grand slam, and the Rams qualified at least one player for the NCAA individual tournament in each of Kostin’s first 16 years at the helm. Nine of Kostin’s players have also earned ITA All-America status, including 2005 & 2006 honoree Le Cloerec, while three former Rams have been recognized as Academic All-Americans as well.
