Mustin takes over Tigers’ boys tennis

Lebanon — For the first time in more than three decades, the Lebanon boys tennis program will have a new head coach.

After 34 years as boys coach, and 44 years of coaching overall, Roy Flanary stepped down as head coach.

Replacing him will be one of his former players, Brad Mustin. The move was approved at the Lebanon School Board meeting Tuesday.

“Coach Flanary was extremely passionate and dedicated to the sport of tennis and all students in the Lebanon school corporation and community,” Lebanon athletic director Phil Levine said in a press release. “He will be missed by all, but I am looking forward to having Mr. Mustin, one of Mr. Flanary’s successful former players, take over. I feel confident he will do an outstanding job.”

Mustin graduated from Lebanon in 2007 after a successful playing career as a Tiger.

He and partner Greg Milam advanced to the double regional finals in 2005 and were named all-district and second-team all-state. The next season, he and partner Justin Brand earned honorable mention all-state honors.

“They are definitely big shoes to fill,” Mustin said of replacing Flanary. “But coach has spent years in building a strong program, not just a strong team. The guys know what it takes to keep it going. It is a little stress off my back [now that it is official.] We can move forward and get to work because really, the season starts in four weeks.”

Levine said that Mustin fits in perfectly with what they were looking for in a new coach.
