Barb Propst was one of the top women’s tennis players on what was one of the top tennis teams in the nation from 1977-79. In her first season of competition in 1977, Propst put together an 11-3 record at the No. 1 singles position to help lead the Vandal women to a high ranking in the Northwest Region. In 1978, Propst did even better, as she went undefeated at the No. 1 and No. 2 singles spots during the year and led the Vandal women to the AIAW Division II national tournament, where the team finished ninth. For her senior season in 1979, Propst led the Vandal women to an early-season top-10 ranking and yet another berth to the AIAW national tournament.
