Ralph Ipri – Boys Tennis Coach
March 6, 2020
Ipri, a coaching legend, had a forty year career at East. Within those four decades full of rackets and tennis balls, he achieved 956 wins and 90 losses. This ratio that Ipri had is very tough to make.
On his date of retirement, May 6, 2011, he held the record of having the most boys tennis wins in the USA. In 1991, his boys team was number one in the State. He had ten Group IV State titles.
Perhaps his greatest achievement, along with his many others, was being awarded the 2004 National Coach of the year for boys’ tennis.
Ipri’s successful coaching career left a lasting effect on all of his players, and he produced award winning teams.
