PRINCETON -- Less than two months after leading Princeton's women's tennis team to its first Ivy League title and NCAA tournament berth in nine years, head coach Kathy Sell has elected to step down and relocate for personal reasons to the state of North Carolina where her boyfriend and most of her nuclear family resides.

Sell, a native of Moorestown, N.J., had a record of 63-41 in her five years on the job. Prior to Princeton, Sell was an assistant coach at Oregon after graduating from Duke in 2001 as the university's Outstanding Scholar-Athlete her senior year.

"While it certainly hasn't been an easy decision to step away from my position at Princeton, I am very excited to move closer to loved ones in North Carolina," Sell said. "I have thought about this for quite some time and on a personal level, I am ready to move forward with my life. Princeton has afforded me an excellent coaching education and incredible relationships with student-athletes who I will continue to follow and support. I am proud of the accomplishments of the tennis program over the past five years and I know with certainty that this team will continue to improve and will maintain the standard of excellence that is consistent with Princeton University. Gary Walters has given great support both to me and my program and I have no doubt that under his leadership, Princeton will attract an incredible new coach." 

Walters in turn stated that "Kathy has been a terrific coach and ambassador for Princeton tennis. Our student-athletes and the athletic department are indebted to her for her significant contributions to the over-all quality of our athletic program. We wish her well as she moves on to the next exciting phase of her life." 

Princeton's national search for a new women's tennis mentor will begin immediately.
