    Coach Jeff Fedor

    I started playing tennis when I was a freshman in high school and immediately became addicted to it. Through my high school and college years I worked as an instructor at the summer tennis camp held at my high school in Illinois. I went to college at Winona State University where I played tennis for four years while earning my degree. I teach in the CEMS (Center for Engineering, Mathematics, & Science) program here at Blaine and also have been coaching the boys and girls tennis teams since I started here. I am currently the Varsity Girls' and J.V. Boys' tennis coach.  I enjoy working with the players and have been fortunate enough to see many of them have a lot of success. Outside of school I continue to play USTA league tennis and also enjoy golfing. However, my favorite activity is spending time with my wife and our son and daughter.

     

    Coach Jody Cullen

    I have played nearly every sport competitively and tennis became my sport of choice. I played four years at Northwestern College and was team captain my senior year in 1997. I have been coaching various sports my whole teaching career including coaching the Blaine Boys' Tennis team since 1999. I am currently the Varsity Boys' and J.V. Girls' Tennis Coach.  I thoroughly enjoy tennis and feel that I have benefited tremendously from this sport. I am married and have three sons that will be future tennis players. Outside of spending time with family and coaching I occasionally have time for a little fishing.
