"This is an outstanding program and I hope my experience and knowledge will only make this program better." - Tennis Professional, Bob Warkentine

I came to Salina in 1980 to take over the Salina Central Boys Tennis Team. During my 20 years as coach at Salina Central we were able to do the following:
  • 3 State Championships
  • 4 State Runner-ups
  • 1 Third Place State Finish
  • 8 Straight I70 League Championships
  • Numerous Regional Championships
During my 20 years as coach, I was blessed to have coached some great players who are now some of the fathers of our Jr. Players

I also was the Head Boys Tennis Coach at Salina South for three years in which we were able to do the following:
  • 5th place finish at State
  • I70 League Champions - a first ever and only time this has been done
  • Regional Champions
  • Numerous State placers and qualifiers
I was fortunate that in 2009, I was inducted into the Kansas Tennis Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
