Jean Doyle Garrett HOF
     Arguably the most accomplished female tennis player in UofA history. Before transferring to the UofA in 1948, she was ranked No. 1 in junior doubles and No. 2 in junior singles nationally. During her first year at UofA, she won the Women's Athletic Association singles title, the Southwestern Championship in mixed doubles, the Arizona State Championship in singles, doubles and mixed doubles, and the Intercollegiate Championships in singles and doubles. In the summer of 1949, she represented the UofA on the Northwestern Open Tennis Circuit, winning singles, doubles and mixed titles at Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. During her senior year at the UofA, she captured a second W.A.A. singles title, won the doubles and mixed doubles titles at the Southwestern Tennis Championships, and won the Ojai Intercollegiate Championships in singles and doubles, at the time the most prestigious title in women's collegiate tennis. She began coaching tennis in 1951 and at the time of her induction was still coaching. As a player on the national senior's circuit, she became even more dominant, accumulating more than 50 national doubles titles.
