1974 Men's Tennis

Community Colleges of Spokane
Class of 2006

The 1974 Community Colleges of Spokane men’s tennis team won the NWAACC championship under Coach Mike Macaulay, Spokane’s first tennis title. This team dominated college tennis during the year, finishing with a 17-3 season, shutting out every community college team in dual matches.

In addition, they beat most four-year teams including wins over EWU, CWU, Whitworth, Montana, Idaho, and Big Sky champion, Boise State.

They were led by Bill Wagstaff who won the #1 singles and teamed with Kim Jackson to win the #1 doubles titles in the NWAACC Championships. Wagstaff went on to play #1 at the University of Oregon and later become the most successful high school tennis coach in the Greater Spokane League while coaching at Mead for over 35 years.

Two other local standouts, Dan Yount and Wally Heidenson, went on to play #1 singles and doubles at EWU, leading them to their only trip to the NAIA Nationals in school history. Wally continued on to become the men’s and women’s tennis coach at CCS for much of his career.

Team members: Tom Bingaman, Kim Jackson, Bill Wagstaff, Wally Heidenson, Dan Yount, Coach: Mike Macaulay
