"Colby, to me, remains a hidden gem in Division III tennis," Wang said. "We are in a conference (NESCAC) that is among the best, if not the best, in Division III tennis. We offer the best of both worlds in academics and athletics."
Wang has had players (men and women) named ITA scholar-athletes and both tennis squads were ITA All-Academic Teams.
"The potential for the varsity tennis programs here at Colby is limitless," Wang said. "The program grows each year in one direction or another. With each passing year, the growth strengthens other facets of the program. It is exciting to be part of a program that continues to grow and develop into a regional and national contender."

The Binghamton, N.Y., native was the head women's tennis coach at Edgewood College for three years. Edgewood and University of Wisconsin are both located in Madison.

He had a 15-5 record in league play and was named the Lake Michigan Conference Coach of the Year in 2005 and received the same honor in 2006 by the Northern Athletics Conference. Edgewood did not have a men's tennis program.Besides his coaching experience, Wang also was the Director of Tennis for the village of Shorewood Hills in Wisconsin for three years. He also was a tennis instructor at Nielsen Tennis Stadium at the University of Wisconsin from 2002 to 2007.
Wang played collegiate tennis at Binghamton University from 1991 to 1995 and helped the team earn their first-ever trip to the NCAA Division III Tournament during his senior year. The squad finished the season ranked 10th nationally.
Wang earned a bachelor's degree in psychobiology from Binghamton in 1995 and added a master's degree in social work from the University of Wisconsin in 1999.
