Columbia, S.C. – USC women’s tennis head coach Arlo Elkins announced Wednesday that former Gamecock Katarina Markovski will join his staff this fall as an assistant coach.

Markovski came to USC as a player in the fall of 1998 and made an immediate impact on the Gamecock tennis program. The righthander from Valjevo, Yugoslavia was voted Southeast Region Rookie of the Year and earned All-SEC honors, winning nine of her ten matches to begin her career at USC.

As a sophomore, Markovski was named team MVP, was a NCAA Championship selection and reached an individual ITA national ranking of No. 13, the highest recorded individual ranking in school history. Markovski continued to lead the Gamecocks her junior and senior seasons, finishing her senior season on the SEC Honor Roll and currently holding the school¹s No. 9 spot in career doubles wins with a 69-34 record and the No. 11 spot for overall wins with 134-92.

“We are really excited about welcoming Katarina back as a member of the Gamecock tennis program,” Elkins said. “She made a significant impact to the program as a team leader on and off the courts and we look forward to her having the same impact as assistant coach.”

Markovski joins the Gamecock staff from Miami, Fla., where she worked as an instructor at Michael-Ann Russell Community Center. Markovski, 26, is single and will reside in Columbia.
